At the weekend I was invited to talk at the Danish Babywearing Festival 2018/Dansk Bærefestival – discussing babywearing from the perspective as a Dad.

Attended by Dads, Mums and health professionals from across Europe, I discussed my own personal adventures in babywearing over the last 15 years since becoming a Dad.

My talk included discussing becoming a father; my challenges of parenthood; addressing the discovery of babywearing and how carrying not only enabled me as carer, but also helped me as a person.

Moving into a professional world, my lecture also addressed my role as a professional and trained babywearing consultant and how I have been able to share my experiences through the building of our family businesses over the years, including our new brand IntegraBaby.

Our business is a truly family affair and it was lovely to share my journey as well as getting my own support with the help of my middle daughter Suzie who proudly designed the lecture’s PowerPoint to accompany my talk!

Dansk Bærefestival – it was an honour and a pleasure!

I now look forward to meeting and sharing more experiences later on in the year at the Swedish Babywearing Festival in September.
