Becoming Mamas is proud to be a supporter of the newly formed Baby Carrier Industry Alliance (BCIA). We encourage you to join as well! For only $25, you can become a “Friend” of BCIA; smaller donations are welcome as well. Every dollar is important as BCIA works to ensure the safety of baby carriers on the market and the integrity of the babywearing industry. Current work includes completion of industry standards.
I’d also encourage you to read the press releases on the BCIA homepage, in particular the one about the closing of Hotslings which may help you to understand exactly why the work of BCIA is so important. If a large, successful company such as Hotslings is forced to close its doors in light of recent events, imagine what could happen to smaller, equally quality companies.
As an incentive to join, Susan at Sweet Pickles is offering a $25 store credit to anyone who joins BCIA as a Friend (credit will be issued when you sign up). Jan at Sleeping Baby Productions is also offering a discount for BCIA members; email her for information. Finally, if you do choose to donate or join, tell them Meredith at Becoming Mamas sent you!!
We’ll be following the progress of BCIA and posting news as it happens!Like what you read? Buy me a coffee! Thanks for your support!
