Welcome to Babywearing International of Birmingham! We are the Birmingham, Alabama, chapter of Babywearing International Inc., a nonprofit educational organization with the mission of promoting babywearing as a universally accepted practice, with benefits for both child and caregiver, through education and support.
Our chapter hosts free educational meetings, operates an extensive baby carrier lending library, provides opportunities to connect with other babywearers through our Facebook discussion group and Facebook page, reaches out to the local community through media and events like the Babypalooza Expo, and reaches out to the online community through our blog.
Founded in 2006 as “Magic City Slingers,” our group became one of the first chapters of Babywearing International in 2008. That year, our chapter helped celebrate the first-ever International Babywearing Week, for which we received recognition from the Governor of Alabama and the Mayor of Birmingham.
Like all Babywearing International chapters, our group is an all-volunteer organization. Our chapter’s volunteer babywearing educators include internationally-recognized experts within the babywearing community, and all of our volunteers are passionate about sharing the joy of babywearing in Birmingham and beyond.
