Welcome to Babywearing International of Oahu!
Babywearing International (BWI) is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to promoting babywearing as a universally accepted practice, with benefits for both child and caregiver. We are the Oahu chapter of BWI, a community group with non profit status. Our mission is to serve the community with babywearing education, advocacy, and networking.
Our group is run solely by volunteers who are passionate about babywearing and serving our local community. We provide education, support, and community, for babywearers through our blog, Instagram, Facebook Group, Facebook Page, If you are not local on Oahu, here is where you can find a chapter near you.
We maintain lending libraries for our three meeting locations. Our group holds many functions throughout the month that allow you to try out various carriers, learn about a new carry, or network with other babywearers! Our meetings are free to attend, and dues paying members can check out carriers each month. Find out more about How and Why to Become a Member of our Lending Library here. We also host informal play dates, and other group outings. Our Facebook Group is a very active, safe space for babywearers living in Hawaii to engage in Babywearing conversation, post photos to share or get Babywearing tips.
Membership is not required to attend any of our meetings or events; however, we do encourage you to join. Your membership supports this wonderful community and keeps our chapter growing. One of the biggest and most useful membership perks is access to our ever-expanding lending library!
