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.

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?

I don't know anyone in Barrie that might be interested in this. I get strange looks for saying I buy organic let alone the response to my beliefs on schooling, family beds, tv etc. Lol.

How many kiddos are you guys bringing? I have a 4 year old and a 19 mos old and a cafe just sounds all wrong... Lol

Maybe I will hook up with you guys in a few weeks when we can meet at a playground outside;)

I hear you about the odd looks. I was in Newfoundland with my first in a s
All town to boot... I carried ds right until they day I gave birth to my dd...oh yes a few stares there.... And then carried both starting that day...lol

Now I am pg again.
dd does not like to be carried as much as ds did (still does..lol)

Maybe it is the difference inthe time of year they were born hmm

Looking forward to hearing how your meeting works out.. A cafe sounds so nice...ahhh

It will be a long time before I will be able to enjoy one of those again;)

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!

Hello!

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.
