Tucson Babywearers are happy to join El Rio Birth & Women's Health Center's baby group for an "Introduction to Babywearing" session. Come learn from nationally certified volunteer babywearing educators (with Babywearing International of Tucson) how to safely use at least 5 different types of baby carriers with newborns, infants, and/or toddlers.

If you already have a baby carrier(s), feel free to bring it/them for assistance from our educators!

And, of course, if you are a pro babywearer yourself, you are welcome to join the fun, as there will also be time for chatting/socializing with other babywearing caregivers.

PLEASE READ UPDATED details carefully!

Babywearing International of Tucson's February Lending Library will be held from 2-4pm on Saturday, February 17. You are welcome to bring your own carrier and get some tips from our experienced Volunteer Babywearing Educators and/or check out carriers (one or two) for 4 weeks!

If you haven't borrowed a carrier from our Lending Library before, here is some information on our wonderful (and growing) library of baby carriers:

...

-The rental period is 4 weeks long and the Lending Library will be available at any meeting/event that you see the Lending Library will be attending (special notes will be made under the event).

-Paying the $30 annual BWI Membership dues will allow you access to rent up to two carriers each month.

-Review our Membership & Lending Library Agreement and complete your membership sign-up online prior to the LL here: https://docs.google.com/…/1Tt2VGPt1KLp9D1TKG7c8Oj9…/viewform

-Payment will be accepted in the form of cash, check, or PayPal. PayPal transfers must be made prior to the event and payment receipt verified, or can be done at the event via mobile devices (pending receipt of payment confirmation on our end). If you have questions regarding PayPal payments, please PM an admin.

Direct PayPal link for Membership payment: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr

-Some carriers (as noted in the Lending Library Photo Gallery on our blog) will have a refundable DEPOSIT required. This must be provided in the form of a PERSONAL CHECK that will be returned to you upon carrier return. If you do not have (or forget) a personal check, there are many carriers available that do not require a deposit that you may choose from.

-Up to two carriers per family/per rental. Note: only ONE premium carrier at a time.

*If you are needing to return a carrier and can not make the meeting time, please make arrangements with a lending library coordinator to return the carrier BEFORE the event. The carrier must be dropped off or mailed back with insurance at your expense to arrive one day before its due date.

If a carrier is not returned ON or before the day of the Lending Library, the member will be fined $1 per day until the carrier is returned. An invoice will be sent to paypal for the full replacement cost of the carrier if it is not returned to a designated BWI representative within 30 days of the due date. All lending library privileges will be suspended until either fees or invoices are paid.

As a reminder, the bag that the carrier comes in MUST be returned with the carrier (tag included). If the bag is not returned, a $5 replacement fee will be charged via paypal invoice and will need to be paid before anything is checked out from the Lending Library in the future.

Even though it’s called ‘baby’wearing, it can also be toddler- or big-kid wearing!

For the past three years, we’ve asked PLAYFORMANCE for a donation for International Babywearing Week and without any hesitation they have given us a very generous donation every time. We are beyond devastated to hear that the whole Playformance family is now mourning the loss of ten-year-old Jolene, the owners daughter, due to complications from cystic fibrosis a condition both her and her younger sister share. The cooperative leadership team has come together to think about ...how we could give back to this family who has so graciously given to our community these past few years. So we ask in this time of giving, if you so feel inclined, to possibly donate to the McCallister-Nichols family directly to help with any outstanding medical bills they may face in the months to come or to the cystic fibrosis foundation in Jolene’s name so that there is continued hope to finding a cure for this terrible disease.

It breaks my heart to let everyone know our daughter Jolene passed away yesterday. She died peacefully in the arms of her mom just like she came into this world.... She fought Cystic Fibrosis so hard and fought without a complaint. Jolene’s spirit animal was a bee and like a bee touches so many flowers, Jolene touched so many lives. We are thankful for all her family, friends, doctors, RT’s, and nurses for taking such good care of her. Rest In Peace sweet Jolene. I loved being your dad. Anna McCallister Nichols
