As a complete believer and follower of Attachment Parenting, we were quite excited to see a conference dedicated to wearing your baby taking place in Chicago on June 25 through June 28, 2008.
The 2008 Babywearing Conference: Carrying The Future, will take place at DePaul University's Lincoln Park campus and will feature babywearing workshops -- many of them are free and open to the public. The conference will also have an exhibit hall where all of the newest carriers and other baby products will be on display and available for purchase.
Some of the seminars being offered during the conference include "Babycarrier Design Theory and Process", "Toddlers and Preschoolers Overview", "Finding the 'Perfect' Carrier" as well as "Babywearing Men" and "Babywearing Budget", among others.
The keynote speaker will be Jeni Norton, founder of thebabywearer.com, and the panel discussion will be History of Babywearing. And we love the fact that there will also be a fashion show featuring carriers and accessories.
