Babywearing in the Park

Last Friday was the monthly Bangkok Babywearing Club (BBC) meeting. I really love this particular group because there are babies as well as toddlers and the moms all seem so nice and friendly. November 11th thru the 16th is International Babywearing Week and BBC has teamed up with Samitivej Hospital to promote babywearing. There will be a booth set up at the hospital along with a banner and brochures. We meet at the park next to Emporium so that we could get some nice pictures for the brochures. The weather was perfect and the lighting couldn't have been better. Lanna, Tira, and I all got our pictures taken and then enjoyed some Starbucks coffee and muffins while hanging out with the other mommies.

It was fun to see all the different carriers being used with all different aged babies (there was a newborn only a week or two old and then there were 3-4 year olds). I got to show off my baby wearing skills by getting down on the mats and playing with Tira while drinking coffee and having Lanna strapped up in the Moby. Tira did great hanging out and playing with little Joseph. Once she got bored we went over to the playground for a little bit.

All it all it was tons of fun. The pictures turned out great! Here's just a sample, I'm waiting for the rest.
