I have been looking for a babywearing group and have found none in the Seattle area/north area-please correct me if I'm wrong!<br>
I live in Snohomish county north of Seattle in the Mukilteo/Everett area and would love to get a group going! I'm not sure if it will be a NINO group or independent one but I'd love to get people together in Mid May. Hoping to meet at a park that has a shelter but maybe a library conference room.<br>
My idea for the group is two-fold:<br>
*first is to talk with other babywearing moms about carriers and what works for us/doesn't work and to try different things out<br>
*second is to offer intro meetings for new moms/dads or anyone interested in babywearing so they can learn more about the many options out there and try some out<br>
The first meeting would be more about meeting like minded mamas and sharing our carriers <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br>
Please e-mail ([email protected]) me/post here if you're interested so I can gage interest and how much space we might need for a first meeting<br>
Thanks <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>

Ann - I'd love to come. I'm currently not baby wearing, b/c the little baby has not come out and the big one is too huge these days! But, I'm hoping to be a baby-wearer again in 24 hours! I'm in Marysville/Everett, so let me know the where's and when's - Forest Park is a good option and has shelters everywhere - just call ahead to get a space.

I am a little further north than you, Mount Vernon, but would be interested if you meet a little further north like maybe Marysville or North Everett. Sorry I don't know where the parks and such are down there as I mostly stay north of Stanwood... Oh, and I have a 9 month old that has been <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/slingboy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Slingboy">: since day one! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> Caution: I have some definite favorites though and do sell a couple of slings through my office and in an online store. (I am a chiropractor) I am always looking for great slings that are ergonomically friendly. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br><br>

Hi- I'm in Bothell- and that sounds great! I have two girls ages two and four and I wore my older one often but my younger one always wanted down and to be out so I didn't wear her very often- but still great idea!

Ann, count me in whenever, where ever! I think a babywearing group sounds great! I just bought a wrap and would like some hands-on demonstration. Sometimes trying to figure out wearing instructions on the internet is so frustrating.<br>

I'd be interested as well -- I live in the Bothell/Canyon Park area. It's easy for me to get to Mill Creek or South Everett.
