DCBN Birthday Party!

We apologize, because of a scheduling conflict at the building we’ve had to make a change and thus our announcement is last minute.

Denton County BirthNetwork is one year old! We’re celebrating our first year as a chapter and would love to have you join us. We’ll be meeting at the same time and place (7pm at the Denton North Branch Library) and still on a Monday, just in January instead of February.

Please RSVP on our Facebook event page so we can be sure to have enough refreshments.

We’ll also have a variety of baby carriers on hand and we’ll be hearing from some local parents on baby-wearing tips. Have you found your little one is happiest in your arms, but you need those arms free sometimes to accomplish things? Do you have an upcoming trip and you’re wondering about whether a stroller or carrier would be more convenient? Are you an expectant parent curious about what all these carriers are & which is best for you? or are you just wondering what the benefits of baby-wearing may be? Then come join us! We hope to see you there.
