Penang Gathering - April 11 2009

Despite the gloomy skies and the gathering time being switched from 3pm to 2.30pm, the April gathering went well with the launch of the Carrier Library.

Focusing on 'One Shouldered Carriers', we explored the possibilities and the tips and tricks with using one shouldered carriers - namely the pouch and the ring sling. What is probably missing is the hip carrier... something that no one in the team or gathering has.

The launch of the carrier library was just in time for two pairs of new attendees, both with a newborn, to borrow a carrier home with them to try out for the month.

Afni had her eyes set on the pouch before the gathering but prefers the flexibility the ring sling has to offer... especiall when her hubby agrees to share babywearing with her ;)

The launch of the Carrier Library was a successful one indeed, with 5 out of 6 attendees signing up. Hopefully, we will be able to extend the library to include more carriers in time to come.
