Work Out Wendesday -
Social - Meet up at the playground at 96th and Riverside for a babywearing walk at 3:00.  This walk will be down the path along Riverside Drive and will be easily navigable by strollers, so even if you have multiple kids and don't want to tandem, don't let that stop you.  There is a park with playground and parking, we will meet there to start our walk.
On-line - share pictures or links to your favorite babywearing workouts

Throwback Thursday - Post your very first babywearing picture

Shout it Saturday -
Social - Grab your favorite carrier and join us at the Tulsa zoo at 10am to share the babywearing love with everyone you meet. We will meet inside the gates at the big globe.
On-line - Share the BWATulsa facebook page or blog on your own personal page and see how many new parents and caregivers we can interest in sharing the gift of babywearing with their little one. 

Social Media Sunday - share your experiences from the week.  Consider writing a blog post about how babywearing has affected your life or about how much fun you had over the past week!  Blog posts can be emailed to 

On top of all of that, all week long we will be running a Babywearing Photo Scavenger Hunt!  Ashley Ritchie will post more details on that soon.  I know she has prizes lined up and is seeking a few more.  All pictures submitted to the babywearing photo scavenger hunt are required to be taken during international babywearing week.  

Somer Johnson is a Babywearing enthusiast and Momma to E, a bundle of energy.  She is also addicted to cloth diapers and makes and sells wool dryer balls as SomerKnits.  Occasionally she also carves out some time to knit, spin or weave her main pre-baby passions.
