Welcome to TheBabywearer.com, the premier internet forum dedicated to babywearing: the art and practice of keeping your baby close to you using one of a variety of types of slings, wraps, and carriers. Here you can meet other babywearers and learn about babywearing safety, different types of carriers and carries, tips and tricks, DIY, and more, find a local babywearing meeting near you, or visit our active FSOT forums to buy and sell used carriers.

  3. Don't worry they are still here but in an effort to simplify navigation of TBW, we are in the process of renaming forums to be more descriptive and regrouping them. Thank you for your patience while we work to make TBW the best it can be!
