What is Australia & New Zealand Babywearing Week 2013?
Babies don’t have to be a handbrake on a parent’s lifestyle! The ancient wisdom of babywearing – the extended use of baby carriers and slings – offers the busy modern parent freedom and convenience, while providing their babies the most nurturing place to grow.
Australia and New Zealand Babywearing Week was designed to raise the profile of babywearing and its benefits in a pram dominated culture.
The national celebration gathers parents together to create and/or attend local Babywearing Events. These Babywearing Events have the chance to win up to $4000 of Community Grants for their nominated local family-focused charity. Babywearing events are hosted by volunteer coordinators who invite local parents to join in the celebration to support their local charity and for their chance to win individual prizes.
Australia and New Zealand Babywearing Week has given over $7,500 to family-focused charities since its inaugural celebration in 2010, with another $4000 promised for this year’s awards.
Running parallel with International Babywearing Week, this year’s theme is ‘Get Carried Away’ and the weeklong celebration will run from 7 – 13th October.
