For generations, the practice of babywearing has made caring for children easier while helping them develop or maintain life-long bonds with caregivers. The goal of the Carrying On Project is to help get carriers to the families of our military so that they may better obtain secure attachments with their children, something that deployment and injuries will often interrupt. We seek to assist both the service members and the families left behind in “Carrying On” while both home and away, to make something that is difficult for the whole family a little bit easier.
How does this work?
It's super simple. All you have to do is fill out our form here. We'll review your request and do our best to match you with the carrier that will work best for you and your baby. We offer a rotating stash of quality carriers of different brands and styles. We keep a few of each of the major types (stretchy wrap, woven wrap, mei tai, ring sling, and soft structured carriers) on hand to send out quickly. Any preferences, injuries, or physical limitations you may have will be accomodated to the best of our ability. If we don't have something that will work for you we'll try to obtain it.
Our goal is to get you something that you will be able to use comfortably and be comfortable using. All we ask is that you are a US Military family that could not get a carrier otherwise or without unnecessary hardship.
If you have a friend or family member that you think could benefit, you can nominate them here.
