Ergobaby is Home Week of June 8

We stand with black families and we stand for raising a generation of better humans that are empathetic and anti-racist. To that end, we are continuing the conversations and pulling together content to share with our community of families, to support and educate. We have started from a position of educating at home, because that is particularly relevant to families with little ones and we believe that’s where we can have the biggest impact.⁠

June is also Pride Month, so we will be featuring LGBTQ parenting stories throughout the month.  We’ll start off the series with a conversation with Trystan Reece on Tuesday.

On Wednesday, we will talk to midwife Racha Tahani Lawler how black families can practice radical self-care.  How can Black Families navigate the current crisis while taking time to rest and restore.

And on Thursday, we will be talking to Brittany Murlas from Little Feminist Book Club about starting early with books on how to educate our future generation to be anti-racist. There is a lot of work to do, and Brittany has compiled a list of recommended books to help parents start conversations early about anti-racism, equality, and inclusion.

We will continue weekly Babywearing Tips every Tuesday with events manager and babywearing expert Kelly and her team of brand ambassadors!  Have a babywearing question? Ask Kelly on Tuesdays and she will add it to her #TipsTuesday schedule.  We will also continue our Babywearing 101 class with babywearing expert and brand ambassador Kristy on Saturdays, she will be going live from our Love Carries On Facebook Group.  Be sure to join the group to get tips, ask your babywearing questions, and join the live!
