if you go on tbw..I know there is someone there looking for the same...I am close to Barrie and using Barrie midwives, but to be honest I don't have the time or energy for a bw group...if you need any help or want to try a certain type of carrier pm me :)
I am from Alliston. I have been trying to start one for a few months now. I'd love to help out! I have a bunch of different types of carriers for people to try as well.
I would love to be a part of a group in Barrie, coming from TO with an overflow of places for natural, attachment and other "alternative" family practices and people who believe in them I am struggling to find like minded people up here to meet with.
Were you ladies interested in meeting this month?
yes, definately. I can only meet on Thursday and Friday's or the weekend, though.
Let's try to start one for the first friday of the month! Does 1pm work? Where should we meet?
1:30 would be better for me, I am doing something at noon so I could get there by one but it would be cutting it close. I am not sure where to meet up, any suggestions?
Sounds good! Do you think the library would be okay? Or maybe there's a cafe that we could meet at??
Why don't we start out at the library and (if it is a nice day) we can decide if we walk down and check out the cafe's on Dundas or stay there. I know there are a few there but haven't been to any. Where did you want to meet in the library?
How about in the Children's area? Now lets spread the word and see if we can get a few more people to come out
Hahaha I hear yah! You should see some of the looks I get from MIL. I know of a few people that *might* be interested and I'll try to spread the word on some other sites too.
I think both of us are just bringing one but you can bring both! I was just thinking maybe there's a local caffe that is dead during the day and wouldn't mind some momma business and some free range kids running around lol. If you have any suggestions of a place we could meet that would be better for kids let us know! We'd love it if you could come out too!
I am open to another suggestion too. Just let me know, because my son is only 10 months I am not to sure what kid friendly places are around Barrie yet.
I do not know Barrie very well either...lol
there are Ontario Early Years Centers all over.
There is one in Alliston open Monday -Sat
There is one of those in Barrie too but it is closed Friday afternoons.
And I heard it gets so packed sometime that they have to close the doors due to reaching capacity
Wow that's crazy!!! I live in Alliston so I'm going to have to try out the OEYC there sometime soon! Hopefully next week one day.
Anyways, IT'S TODAY!!! Hope to see some of you ladies there with your carriers and babies/ children.
i do go there sometimes, but no car today...
I am searching for a babywearing group for my niece in Alliston, Ont. I live in Stow, Massachusetts and she is struggling with the slings I sent her and wants very much to be successful slinging and nursing as her son is pretty big and she is very petite! I sent her a Moby wrap as well as traditional cotton rail sling. Any information or ideas would be appreciated!
there is none, but if she needs help there is a sore in Barrie called Serenity Birth studio that will teach her how to use them...I haven't got a spare second myself, but if I do I will pm you.
