So that's it for Wear A Hug Fair 2019! Another great day packed full of babywearing, shopping, cupcakes and some great speakers invited to talk.
I was delighted to catch up with Dr Rosie Knowles of Carrying Matters and enjoyed listening to her talk. It was a busy day followed by the Babywearing Ireland AGM and we were lucky enough to get some new slings for the Fingal BWI sling library too!
What a great day at the Wear A Hug Fair. Not only was it my birthday but I got to spend the day surrounded by slings, talking about slings, looking at slings.
My husband and our littlest came with me to help on the day. I couldn't have managed without him! And he did a great job with our little one, modelling slings for the day!
I came away from the fair already looking forward to next year. There's such a buzz at the fair and there's just something special about having the whole place filled with families and slings.
I was delighted that Johanna of Johanna King Photography & Films took some snaps of us on the day. Have a look at her website to see some more of her work and to arrange a photo shoot for your family.
Earth Baby Fair was my first venture as a stallholder at a babyfair! We had attended as participants over the past few years in the Great Cloth Diaper Change and I was delighted to have had baby no's 3 & 4 at the change at various years! This year was very different though. Daddy was with the kids at home (including the one still in cloth nappies! you're amazing Ross!) and I headed off to the fair at the crack of dawn with the help of my sister Muireann (thank you sis). We had a great day! There's a lovely atmosphere at this fair, it's all very relaxed and chilled out and although we were busy all day, we had a great time, meeting new people and chatting to others we already knew, whether it be through work, local groups, the BWI Fingal Sling meet or Friends of Breastfeeding. It's such a lovely community we have. I was on a high after the day and I think it's days like that that give me a boost to keep on going. So a huge thanks to Cloth Nappy Library Ireland and the fabulous services they offer and an even bigger thanks to all of our customers on the day - I hope you're all enjoying lovely snuggly babywearing! Those waterproof jackets and babywearing fleeces flew off the rails!
