Just like any skill there is a learning curve with babywearing. While a caregiver certainly could learn that skill independently it is much easier to learn from someone who is already skilled in that field. Babywearing International’s mission is to promote babywearing as a universally accepted practice, with benefits for both child and caregiver, through education and support. All BWI 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 in the chapter in non-educational tasks.
