CLBW Weekday Meeting
May 13 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm CDTFree
Carriers are due within the first hour of the meeting or they are considered late (late fee is $1 per day.) If you are unable to make it to the meeting where you have a carrier due, please send us an email BEFORE the meeting: email@example.com
This meeting is for new wearers looking to learn basics, anyone wanting to learn new carries, or about other carrier options, and experienced wearers just wanting to talk babywearing.
We start with an overview of safety and carrier types with an emphasis on a different topic each month, then we break up for individual help. Please bring any questions and any carriers you have that you’d like help with, as well as any babies you need help learning to carry.
In addition, please let us know if there is a specific topic you want to discuss or carriers/carries you would like to check-out/go over.
Our meetings are ALWAYS free, and you are always free to try out the carriers that we bring to the meetings. If you’re interested, you have the ability to sign up for a membership. The membership is a $30 tax-deductible donation that allows you to check out one carrier per month for a year.
Please remember that there are many new babies, medically fragile children, and pregnant moms in attendance at our meetings. If you or your child is ill, please be courteous and avoid sharing illness with Chicagoland Babywearing. If you have a carrier due, you can just do a quick drop off or mail to a leader to return. Please do not attend if anyone in your household has had a fever within the last 48 hours, has a deep cough or thick mucus, a rash, or has been sick with a stomach virus in the last 48 hours. Please email us before the meeting at firstname.lastname@example.org regarding carrier returns.
If you or your child has been sick and used the carrier in the last 48 hours, please return the carrier in a plastic bag for washing. Please do not wash the carrier yourself.
