In conjunction with International Babywearing Week 2008, Malaysian Babywearers organised a Babywearing Workshop for the very first time. With effort from the MBW Committee members and our local sponsors, the event was held at Teeny Tiny Tapir, Ampang, KUALA LUMPUR.
More photos on the settings will be uploaded when we get them but the main catch of the day was the cupcakes by our very own Rayhana :) Yummy to the eyes and tummy, too :)
Registration was limited to 40 people but only about 25 signed up and attended the workshop. Honestly, though, it is already better than what we expect, with a good mix of Malaysians of all races and traditions :D
Hit of the day is probably the three lucky draw sessions where we gave out some sponsored gifts... a MummyHugs pouch, a Littlepods pouch and a mystery gift sponsored by Peekaroobaby. Here, you see Cressa of Teeny Tiny Tapir drawing one of the three draws.
Apart from the Babywearing Show where all sorts of babywearing options are being introduced to the participants, we focused on a few of the more common carriers... namely, the pouch, the ring sling, mei tai, Soft Structured Carriers (SSC) and Simple Pieces Of Cloth (SPOC). With assistance from vendors, professional in their respective fields, details of each were shared.

It was a rainy and rather gloomy day but we had great fun organising the event and hope everyone who participated enjoyed it as well :)
To all who attended the Workshop, a BIG THANK YOU for being there to support us. Do let us know how we can do better ;)
