Advanced Babywearing Educator
Melissa has been babywearing since the birth of her second son in 2010, and has been a VBE since April 2011. Babywearing became an even more important part of Melissa's life after the birth of her premature daughter. Babywearing not only meant convenience, it also helped her little one physiologically, and gave mother and daughter back the months together that they had lost. Melissa is passionate about educating preemie parents on safe and proper babywearing, as it benefits both them and their tiny babies. Melissa loves being a part of BWI of CNY and is active as a moderator and educator in the international online babywearing community.
Voluteer Babywearing Educator
When her daughter Emma was born, Kristin was returning to work full time and luckily had a cousin who introduced her to the world of babywearing. Wearing Emma helped Kristin stay close to her baby despite not always being able to be together due to her schedule. Kristin is excited to share her knowledge and experience with others and help others like her. Kristin works full time for Hutchings Psychiatric Center on the children's inpatient unit and part time doing training and behavior work with CNY Pet Training, as well as volunteering for the local therapy pet organization PAWS of CNY, Inc. on the board of directors.
