So I'm sure you all know what a HUGE fan I am of my Sleepy Wrap and my Boba carrier, and of babywearing in general. Needless to say, when some friends of mine from La Leche League organized a "Babywearing Flash Mob" I jumped right on board... even though I had NO idea what a "flash mob" was. For anyone as clueless as me, the wikipedia definition of a "flash mob" is "a group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual and sometimes seemingly pointless act for a brief time, then disperse, often for the purposes of entertainment and/or satire." Now you probably know what I mean, but in any case here's a good example...
(Thankfully, the dance we will be performing isn't nearly this elaborate!)
Although I had my apprehensions about doing a little choreographed dance in a busy public place, I figured if it would raise awareness of the benefits of babywearing, it would be worth it. Well I was completely sold on the idea when I saw on Facebook today that every mama who participates in the flash mob will get either a free Sleepy Wrap or Boba Carrier!!!!!!
So if you would like to be given one of my two favorite baby products and you are available the first weekend of August, come participate in the babywearing flash mob. The next rehearsal is July 15th at 4 pm. You can find out more details by "liking" the Breastfeeding Cafe SLC on Facebook.
And a potential added bonus to those of you who may be new to babywearing... there will be lots of people at the flash mob rehearsals who can give you tips on ways to wear your baby :) So come join the fun and be a part of the babywearing flash mob!!
