To kick off International Babywearing Week 2015 we thought what better way than to #embraceourcommunity!

Nestled in a valley in the Great Smoky Mountains, Knoxville TN is rich with pride and culture. The mountains offer lots of wilderness and opportunities to hike and explore. And what better way to include your little one than with babywearing. Many of the trails are safe and easy enough to hike while babywearing or with little ones on foot yet offer scenic views, waterfalls and wildlife.

Food, music and art bridge a gap between the old and the new in Knoxville. Downtown Market Square offers a quirky mix of locally owned restaurants and stores. On Saturdays there is a large farmers market with local produce, meat, eggs and artisan goods along with a few of our delicious food trucks. You can always spot babywearers.
Close to downtown is the University of Tennessee. During football season you see orange everywhere you look, (which helps us fit in in our BWI attire). Vol pride is strong and fans are abundant. Many families are either tail gating or at the game on Saturday, many with carriers in tow.

There are so many other things to do here. Whether they're hitting the local children's museum or zoo or heading down to Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge for the day, our chapter is honored to help our members find the ease and convenience of babywearing.
