Nominee for 2019

Birdie’s Room

Owner: Barb
Birdie’s Room shop
Birdie’s Room on Facebook. Chit chat facebook group.
Instagram @BirdiesRoom

  • Barb is awesome and very supportive. Birdie’s Room is my preferred babywearing store because it is accessible, and has helped with supporting meetings in PEI and in Ontario.
  • I love Cindy, she hosts in person hikes and meet-ups in the summer  in the Toronto area.
  • Their facebook chatter group is a really fun space. It’s a lively, small community with members from all over the world. We get to talk and share our experiences and the support in there is phenomenal. Plus we get to geek out over our favourite carriers, including guessing what Didy may be planning next.
  • Barb built our group lending library, gives us with space for our babywearing group meetings, offers local discounts, lets people borrow before they buy. There is no end to the support she provides to the local babywearing community. She’s not only an excellent business owner, but an excellent person, inside and out.

Best Canadian babywearing group 2019

Congratulations to the Grand Prairie Lending Library, the winner of the best babywearing library for 2019. Scroll down to read their nomination.

Grand Prairie Babywearing Lending Library

  • This is where I first learned to wear my baby. The group hosts meet ups, teaches proper carrier use, provides a community for new parents to meet other new parents, and also allows parents to borrow carriers. The library is really nice because it is so accessible.
  • The lending library is awesome because you can try out a lot of carriers to find the perfect one to suit you and baby before you splash the cash! Teresa, a facilitator, is super knowledgeable about so many carriers and how to use them with different sized babies and children.
  • I love the GP lending library because it’s a super friendly and supportive place to meet other moms and swap stories and tips! I have enjoyed all the library play dates.
  • My sister and I had Jessica come over to give us a private lesson on a few of the carriers. She was punctual and professional- not to mention patient, as our babies decided they needed to eat every ten minutes! She knew all of the wraps and carriers very well and had a lot of tips to share that we may not have learned from the instructions.

Regina Babywearing

  • Regina Babywearing is a supportive and fun group. They were really helpful, and are one of the biggest groups in Saskatchewan and a good one to be a part of. I have made friendships from this group.
  • This group is great! They always answer questions to new members and share tips and tricks that make babywearing easier. The admins are active and have a wealth of experience to offer. They have helped to start and support many babywearing journies.
  • Regina Babywearing have an active lending library and work hard to support local businesses. This is important because they help with ensuring that babywearing is accessible for all parents, and supporting all members of the community.

Regina Babywearing facebook group

Carry me close

  • I will admit that I received the most help from CMC 3 years ago when I started babywearing. They are one of the longest running groups in Canada and have such a wealth of experience.
  • I like Carry me close because it is a great group. It was where I first learned how to babywear myself. In Toronto, it is much easier to take public transportation because navigating the city and finding parking can be such a pain. The first meetings I attended were inaccessible by stroller motivating me to really learn babywearing. Taking a stroller is so impractical.
  • They hold meetings regularly, serve a large population and really aim to be inclusive. It is all volunteer run, and the meeting I went to in the east end was really well run. The eduators are fabulous, and I first went to learn how to use my ring sling. It got me hooked into babywearing when a very nice and approachable eduator taught me how to use a ring sling properly.
  • I like the chatter group. I learned a lot about babywearing myths and what really was important to look out for to babywear properly.

With only a small handful of days to vote, Canadians were enthusiastic. Congratulations Moncton Babywearing Group, you won the Best Babywearing Group in Canada for 2018. I recommend reading the rest of the nominations, we have some great groups run by some fabulous volunteers.

 

 

 

 

 

Moncton Babywearing Group

  • They are a fantastic resource helping so many of us with fit on our current carriers, networking babywearing mum’s through the Facebook group & local meetups, trying out a variety of different carriers before purchasing.
  • They helped me learn how to properly use a ssc at a group meeting. And they also have helped guide me / answered my questions in regards to purchasing a different type of carrier. I greatly appreciate the education and support that they provide as I would of otherwise shyed away from babywearing.
  • Wonderful resource for all things babywearing! They also have an awesome lending library. Lots of tips and instruction on different carriers, plus information on how to safely wear baby. I bought both carriers I own now due to the discussions in the group.

_______________________________________

 

Windsor Babywearing group

  • This is such an amazing and supportive group run by local moms who manage the online group, schedule babywearing play dates and also offer a lending library on their own time. I like the playdates, it’s where you can meet up with other like minded moms to try on various different carriers and learn what may work best for you. They also do one on one learning sessions as well. I love this group.
  • They provide so much knowledge and information regarding so many carriers and they take so much time out of their lives to run this group. When I joined, I quickly learned how inviting and generous this group is. Such a nice community.
  • They are so great!!! They have the best babywearing moms and we are so lucky have such a great babywearing community here in Windsor.

 

Ottawa Babywearing Group – Under Wraps

  • I joined OBG Under Wraps group about a couple of years ago, it was formed by many enthusiasts who enjoy using woven wraps to carry their children. It has been my to go group if I ever have any questions about wraps bst, wrap techniques, or just simply to show off my new wraps. The members in the group are extremely friendly and positive, no one talks about controversial topics, no triggering posts. It’s truly a sanctuary for people like me who just want to learn more about woven wraps, admire beautiful pictures of parents wearing their littles.
  • Couple years ago, the babywearing community had many dramas going around and I honestly stopped enjoying being in the community as much, but since joining Under Wraps, the joy has returned. Even its parent group has been quite peaceful. The groups admins really work hard to make sure people are here to discuss and share babywearing knowledge in a safe space. My babywearing days are coming to an end very quickly as my youngest is already 2, I hope for the next couple years this group continues to grow peacefully.
  • I have always been a part of the main Ottawa Babywearing Group, but to me Under Wraps is special.  It is a smaller community, I feel like I know all of them and they are my go to place for many things — be it quick questions, commiserating and sharing parental woes, and enjoying everyone’s squish pics. In this group, there’s always someone happy to answer questions and share experiences. It’s a great group of moms and dads.

 

Winnipeg Babywearers

  • The Winnipeg Babywearers has an active Facebook group of four thousand where members can access peer to peer support. Leaders are great at directing parents to current information and supporting all their members. They run two monthly meetings where anyone can access in person help, which includes trying carriers from their extensive lending library.
  • The group has been meeting for over 15 years. Many leaders donate years of service providing a strong foundation for the group. Leaders are so helpful and kind, they work to make you comfortable and successful.
  • The Winnipeg Babywearers were instrumental in helping me feel successful with babywearing. The in person help was so important to me and taught me so much more than anything I was learning online. It was so helpful to be able to try carriers before committing to a purchase. I went in thinking I would hate a ring sling thanks to the group I discovered how to use them to their full advantage. Now 7 years later they are still my favourite carrier.

____________________________________________

Take the time to read all our nominations. They show a level of thankfulness for those who work hard to help parents online. There weren’t as many nominations for this category, making me wonder if as Canadians we focus less on our nationality and more on what we can do to help parents. I appreciate anyone who works hard to help parents in our communities.

Hugs and Cuddles

Facebook page. Hug and Cuddles Babywearing Chatter facebook group.
Instagram: @Hugsandcuddles

  • I first met Kerri Devine at the peach festival 2 yrs ago. I had just purchased a second hand mei dai and was having trouble with it, I had asked for help at another store previously and they had half-heartedly offered me advice, then informed me that I could book a consultation. So when I met Kerri, she helped me, and was so kind to me. And since has helped me with all of my babywearing purchases. She’s kind and really knows her stuff. I recommend her to everyone and try and stop and say hi to her when ever out and about at shows and whatnot.
  • Kerri is incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. She takes as much time as needed for one to find the carrier that is right for mom and babe. She this all and does not pressure the buyer into making a purchase. Overall, she is very kind and easy to work with.
  • Kerri is so smart and informative. She makes sure that you leave with product that is best suited for you. She’s always quick to answer questions. Not only that, but she also comes out to meetings to help local Mama’s. She’s so passionate.

She has always gone above and beyond to ensure the best selection is available and to ensure we receive our orders and items in a quick fashion. She is a great mom and business owner to buy from and speak with. She is fantastic and I have referred others to her as well and will continue to purchase from Karen in the future.
  • They make shopping for anything so easy. She helped me pick out a carrier for my toddler that I can also use with baby #2 and is even going to fit it for me and teach me how to use it. She set up a payment plan for me too! Snips and Snails is the best place to go to! Karen is amazing, because she engages with customers online a lot.

Emporte-Moi: Best Babywearing Educator in Canada 2018

A huge thank you to everyone who works helping parents in their communities. I am very pleased to announce this year’s Best Babywearing Educator is Mai-Anh from Emporte-Moi. Congratulations!!

Emporte Moi

Educator: Mai-Anh
Webpage: Emporte-Moi
Facebook: Mamasupial Montreal

 

 

 

  • I have a feeling I only know a small amount of what Mai does. I know she has her own business and babywearing group, but I don’t know her through her local efforts. She started a private babywearing group for mothers interested in babywearing that are also physicians. This has connected mothers who will learn about babywearing themselves but also share with their patients.
  • This is a very active group with over 3300 members and Mai has worked over many years, building up valuable FAQ resources to share and educate from the best babywearing practices) – ie. water safety, babywearing preterm infants, etc. I am also an admin within this group, along with a handful of other educators, but she should be commended for her continued passion and support for fostering new babywearers and helping experienced ones as well.
  • Mai answers nearly every question within her groups, which is impressive considering she is also a physician herself with a busy schedule. She is also fully bilingual.

She takes the time to explain why it is important, and focuses on the safety and comfort of both the person carrying and the child being carried while working with what you have. I truly do not have enough words to say how wonderful Tanya is. On a side note, she has helped so much with my mental health after having a baby, and for that I will be forever grateful. She would be a very worthy recipient of any award for helping mothers.
  • Tanya is an amazing person, with such dedication, commitment and passion for what she does regarding early child education and parenting. She works hard in her community to offer wonderful programs that support parenting and child communication, amongst an array of other education efforts. Her dedication and effort really shows an amazing talent and is well appreciated by all the people who participate in her classes.
  • Tanya is tireless in her effort working with families in the Saskatoon area providing valuable information related to feeding baby, safety, and connecting during the early informative years.
