Welcome to Babywearing International of Topeka, Kansas! We are the local chapter affiliated with Babywearing International Inc. a nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote babywearing as a universally accepted practice, with benefits for both child and caregiver, through education and support. BWI of Topeka provides free educational meetings and support within our community. Meetings are led by Volunteer Babywearing Educators (VBEs) with extensive knowledge of different types of baby carriers and babywearing safety, and Chapter Support Volunteers (CSVs) that aid the chapter in non-educational tasks. While Babywearing International chapters do not sell or endorse specific brands of baby carriers, we do maintain a lending library so that our members and attendees can try a variety of carriers to determine what meets their individual needs.
Come to a meeting!
We currently host two monthly meetings, which are open to members and non-members alike who are interested in attending. Please join us at our next meeting to ask questions and check out the many baby carriers available to try. We can help you figure out what will work for you and your baby or toddler!
Occasionally we hold our meetings outdoors when the weather is good, but most meetings are held at the Topeka & Shawnee County Public Library.
