Taking Social Media by Storm

Babywearing Calgary has been around a while (since 2006 actually)… so we’ve got all the typical social media presences…. like Facebook, Twitter (not active currently though… we got bored with twitting)… and the rockin’ old school Yahoo group.  All we we’re missing in that list is MySpace.  Well, the latest social media program to rock the world is Instagram.  If you haven’t heard of Instagram, it’s an app you can get on an iPhone, iPad, iPod, and now Android as well!  It’s basically a photo sharing app, where you take pictures and share them with the world (or not.. if you choose to have a private account).  You can tag people, comment on pictures, and basically just have a lot of fun.

Well, I {Andi} have a personal IG (short for Instagram, consider yourself in the know *wink) account, and thought it would be fun to introduce Babywearing Calgary to the IG world.  So there you have it, Babywearing Calgary is now on IG!  If you want to see some behind the scenes photos of Babywearing Calgary and all things related to babywearing, please search us up on IG.

Here is a little sneak peak of a couple pics already uploaded.

The picture above is of one of the woven wraps we got donated to the lending libary, and I am just softening it up.  😉  This carry is a double hammock with a double lexi tie.

 

Testing another carrier with a monkey on my back… This one is an Ergo Performance.  Things sure have changed since I bought my first Ergo.

If you are on IG, please follow Babywearing Calgary.. and also tag your pictures with the hashtag #babywearingcalgary and tag us at @babywearingcalgary!  We are looking for babywearing pictures to share with the world, so if you have any, please send them to babywearingcalgary@gmail.com or tag us on IG.

Also, while you’re at it.. look up @carrythem.  Absolutely stunning babywearing pics.

Oh wait… don’t have an iPhone or Android?  No worries!!  You can stalk our pictures on Statigram from your computer!

Thanks for visiting our blog, maybe we’ll see you on IG as well!  🙂  xoxo

Carrier Library

Did you know that Babywearing Calgary has a lending library with carriers that you can rent out to use on your own time?  Well, it’s true… we do.  We are currently in the process of getting everything organized so that you can easily see on this blog what is available for you to take home!  Thank you so much for being patient while we get everything organized for you.

In the meantime (and ongoing really), we are looking to build the library.  If you have a carrier that you would like to donate to the library, please send a message to babywearingcalgary@gmail.com

We are also looking for businesses who are interested in being lending library sponsors, if you are interested in this please pop us a message and we can discuss what that looks like.

**this is not our lending library, but who doesn’t love a picture of a pile of carriers?  Seriously.
