January has come in with bone-chilling, lung-stabbing, skin-gnawing cold and the dreaded annual flu. Our Saturday meeting was, foreseeably, slow with a severe windchill advisory and right after the holidays. However, we live-streamed our Diaper Stash Giveaway drawing on Instagram and the lucky winner was Melody! Congratulations! And if you didn’t win this time, just keep […]
It was a strange month for our meetings. Instead of a Saturday morning meeting, we hosted an evening meeting on a Thursday– which Kelsey couldn’t attend at the last moment. Fortunately, Hai was able to help and two of our regulars came– one of which played Stunt Baby for an expecting couple who wanted […]
A gaggle of #newborns today! We tried a #tula, #ringsling, and a #moby. What are some other local #parenting #groups our members should know about? Comment / tag them below! 🙂
What should you consider before investing in an #infantcarrier before baby arrives? Did you know that along with #fittedpouches, #ringslings and #wraps are sized too? And we show you three ways to create a ring sling: no sewing involved.
This month we did it all from wrapping tiny preemies to trying out a double hammock with a toddler. Thanks to everyone who made it out!
Saturday Meeting: On Off-Label Use: Or as Kelsey put it, “if you would do it with your own child then teach it to others”.

As always our meetings are free, open to the public, and kid-friendly. […]
Thanks to everyone who stopped by our table at the Baby Fair. For those who couldn’t make it, the Baby Fair is hosted by the North Liberty Community Library and sponsored by Mercy Hospital in Iowa City. The Baby Fair showcases local nonprofits and businesses that serve local families– and it supports the library’s Womb […]
Livestream: August is the month for taking vacations, squeezing the last bits out of summer before back to school– which makes for a pretty slow meeting. We tested out the livestream to the Facebook group, well groups (having accidentally started livestreaming to the B/S/T page first). Streaming on Facebook is much more straight forward than using […]
There were a lot of familiar faces this month! We love to see folks come back each month, even if it’s just to hang out. The more the merrier! We talked about our new Lending Library carrier donated by Tula, the pros and cons of different styles of Lillebaby brand carriers and onbuhimos, sunscreen, and […]
