A Learning Curve For All Of Us

I have learnt a lot this year, along with the rest of the babywearing community. Certain words and origins have been highlighted as cultural appropriation and racist. This shocked me and I have been trying to find out as much as I can in the vain ‘know better to do better’. Here at Carry Me Slings we are against racism and appropriation and are in support of the statements made by Babywearing International:

We have modified our website accordingly and will be continuing to research to make sure we are as up to date as we need to be. If you would like to know more about this and the events as they have been unravelling I have included one of the blogs below:
