Celebrate International Babywearing Week with babywearing groups around the world, October 1-7, 2018! Learn more about IBW at

International Babywearing Week is an annual outreach event sponsored by Babywearing International. It is a week-long opportunity to celebrate, promote, advocate for, and focus media attention on the many benefits of babywearing . We invite non-profit babywearing groups around the world to participate in IBW by registering as Official Celebrating Organizations. These organizations will host online and in-person events throughout the week. Babywearing International will promote IBW through its website, twitter, and Facebook accounts with contests, awards, giveaways, and other interactive events. There will also be a coordinated media outreach campaign to raise awareness about babywearing with the general public.
