Babywearing Workshop 15th November 2008

In conjunction with International Babywearing Week 2008, Malaysian Babywearers organised a Babywearing Workshop for the very first time. With effort from the MBW Committee members and our local sponsors, the event was held at Teeny Tiny Tapir, Ampang, KUALA LUMPUR.

More photos on the settings will be uploaded when we get them but the main catch of the day was the cupcakes by our very own Rayhana πŸ™‚ Yummy to the eyes and tummy, too πŸ™‚

Registration was limited to 40 people but only about 25 signed up and attended the workshop. Honestly, though, it is already better than what we expect, with a good mix of Malaysians of all races and traditions πŸ˜€

Hit of the day is probably the three lucky draw sessions where we gave out some sponsored gifts… a MummyHugs pouch, a Littlepods pouch and a mystery gift sponsored by Peekaroobaby. Here, you see Cressa of Teeny Tiny Tapir drawing one of the three draws.

Apart from the Babywearing Show where all sorts of babywearing options are being introduced to the participants, we focused on a few of the more common carriers… namely, the pouch, the ring sling, mei tai, Soft Structured Carriers (SSC) and Simple Pieces Of Cloth (SPOC). With assistance from vendors, professional in their respective fields, details of eachΒ were shared.

It was a rainy and rather gloomy day but we had great fun organising the event and hope everyone who participated enjoyed it as well πŸ™‚

To all who attended the Workshop, a BIG THANK YOU for being there to support us. Do let us know how we can do better πŸ˜‰

Celebrate Babywearing!

It is International Babywearing Week this week and the last Penang Gathering on Nov 8 was just simply to Celebrate Babywearing!

The feast…

The team… my little one was indeed singing “Happy Birthday” ;p

Sadly, the Penang team was missing Shida on that day 😦

It was a fun gathering and above all, it attracted some new participants from the launch of the IBW08 launch at the Little Penang Street Market. And, who is to say, after this gathering, that only Moms would wear their babies?

From the exposure in the papers and media (thanks to his wife putting him on the Babywearing Show), Daddy here is now a pro with the Beco and is all hands-on and glad to show off his skills with it πŸ˜‰

And, aren’t we glad that a confinement lady and a babysitter made it to our gathering to learn up how they can wear the little ones in their care while they attend to their chores πŸ˜€

And, me, baby-less, is always trying to grab the opportunity to show off the different ways and methods with someone’s baby ;p Here’s the long-forgotten two-pouch method:
