In previous posts, I’ve mentioned that some of us have come together and formed FAB, or the Filipino Association of Babywearers. Let’s go quick and simple on what’s been happening since Babywearing Meet 4, yuh?
1. We’ve got a logo and a Facebook page.
Here’s our Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/FABabywearers. Go ahead and “like” it, you know you want to. Har har. In just a couple of days of being publicly published, the page has 183 likes already. Super cool.
2. Some of us held pocket meetups here and there. More coming soon.
Jen Tan of next9 held a hangout session with some ringsling enthusiasts at Starbucks a few weeks ago. Buding and I hosted a SaYa Salo-Salo for some ladies from GirlTalk, a Facebook forum I was added to by one of our Babywearing Meet participants, Kariz. Thanks Buding, for giving everyone Babylegs as a take-home present! We had a lot of fun.
For moms in the Davao area who are interested in babywearing and cloth-diapering, Jen and Jenny will be hosting a meet on May 26, 10am at The Pod. Check out the event here: Babywearing and Cloth Diapering 101 in Davao
If you have a group of parents (I emphasize PARENTS – dads babywear too!) who would like to get together and learn more about babywearing, shoot me an email thru my Contact Page and let’s arrange something! You could be 5 or 20, North, South, East or West – lezzdoit!
3. FAB goes to the Sky Fun Club event in Market Market!
This Saturday, May 19, Jen, Buding, Abie and Clarice (Tickled Moms) and myself will be at the FAB booth from 1-5pm. The event is open to SkyCable Sky Club subscribers, but we were given a limited number of tickets to giveaway. Send a private message on FAB’s Facebook page to ask for one! Please come if you want to see and try different types of carriers and get coached on with your own if you need help. See you there!
