I'd like to find a local babywearing group in northern Virginia. I have 3 carriers and I use the same carry over and over. I'd like to learn some new ones and hang out with some like minded mamas.

Thanks!

Yahoo Groups have a metro area babywearing group. I cut and copied some of their info below. There is also a natural family living yahoo group for No Va and they post info on carriers/meetings every once in awhile.
-------
We are a babywearing group for the DC, Maryland and Virginia Metro Area. At this time, we have three to four monthly meetings around northern Virginia, with plans to expand our meetings to cover Maryland and DC. All are more than welcome to our Virginia meetings as we work to grow and meet the needs of our members in Maryland and DC.

This group is for maintaining the calendar only. You will receive updates on when and where meetings are held.

We currently have a regional hosted forum at www.thebabywearer.com (TBW). The latter is where most of the carrier advice, trouble shooting, and local chat take place, as the volume in our inboxes got quite high in the yahoo group when chatting was there.

To join the TBW local forum for DC-MD-VA, you need to:

1.Go to the TBW home page (www.thebabywearer.com)*
2.Click the top button for “Forum”(third button over on the top)
3.Then under the top heading “The Babywearer.com Forums”, you will see in the top left hand corner “User C-P” (stands for “User Control Panel”). Click on that.
4.Click on the left hand side, “Group Memberships”, it’s under Miscellaneous.
5.Scroll to User Group “NINO DC-MD-VA” and click the circle saying “Join Group.”

Thank you for the invite. Warrenton is a bit far for us. I did try to join the yahoo group but never heard back from them.

Sorry you are having a hard time getting a response from the group.
I joined them via the Baby Wearer site (another great resource for info and
purchases - including used carriers at reasonable prices):
http://www.thebabywearer.com/forum/f...splay.php?f=86.

Also, depending where you are located, I can give you contact information for someone in Alexandria that would be able to help you with carriers. PM me if this would be a convenient location for you.
