Babywearing FlashMob

When I was living in Salt Lake City, I helped run the first Breastfeeding Cafe in the Downtown Public Library.  It was always a great opportunity to educate people about breastfeeding, babywearing and general attachment parenting issues.  It was also an opportunity for people to see women breastfeeding (in public!!!) as a normal thing. One of our goals was to promote the normalcy of breastfeeding.  There were always children running around wearing their babies and "nursing" their babies just like their Mamas.

I loved being part of the cafe the two years we were there.  This morning I found out what special event they did at the Cafe this year, a Babywearing Flash Mob!  I have friends in this mob and was so excited to be able to pick them out and find them.



Y'all know how I feel about babywearing. It goes hand in hand with breastfeeding and is one of the best things you can do for your babies.  I mean, come on, who wouldn't love something that allows you to DANCE while loving on your baby???
