New Zealand Babywearing Week 2011 Event Wrap Up – Gisborne Babywearing Morning Tea

Event wrap up by event organiser Jacquie Shanks of Cheeky Cherubs:

The event at Mangapapa Playcentre was lovely.  We had 15 ladies attend, all with kidlets in tow (plus myself and Huia).  I did a couple of brief demo’s of the Manduca, Close Baby Carrier (Caboo) and the pouch slings I make and displayed the flyers for them all and the Kozy Carrier (had a Kozy on display too). I had also printed out some of the TICKS safety guidelines so that people could take them as well.

Huia demostrated her wraps (www.huiadesign.org.nz) which was excellent as one lady came along with her wrap but hadn’t used it much as she couldn’t get her bub comfy! So she was able to get the help she needed.

My daughter Bonnie & her friend Izzy drew numbers to select the spot prize winners and handed out prizes to people.  An image of the spot prize winners is below:

I look forward to organising something again next year!!!
