Join us at the Botanic Gardens on Sunday 9th of October to celebrate NZ Babywearing Week. This event is a wonderful chance to celebrate and promote the many benefits of babywearing while also connecting with other families that carry their child.

We have an exciting line-up of sponsors for this year's spot prizes. Anyone who walks and stays for the picnic is eligible for a spot prize.

This event is rain or shine so please bring an umbrella or jacket for the walk if needed.

Schedule of Events:
- 1:30pm - New Families & Carrier Adjustments & Registration:
Meeting outside(or inside the Alpine house below the cafe if the weather isn't flash) with a small selection of carriers from the Otepoti Dunedin Carrier Library for anyone wanting to hire* something for the walk and those needing help adjusting their existing carrier.

Participants of the walk will also be asked to Register and will be given a number that will enter them into the spot prize draw.

- 2pm - Garden Walk:
We will all meet by the big worm sculpture by the duck pond. We will then set off on a 15-30 minute walk, splitting into two groups at the bridge so those with prams or those unable to handle incline can take the shorter route. Both groups will finish at the bandstand.

- 2:30pm - Picnic, Carrier Demonstrations:
BYO picnic on the lawn or in the Bandstand if the weather is bad. During the picnic volunteers from the Otepoti Dunedin Volunteers from Otepoti Babywearing will be demonstrating a range of carriers and slings from the library.

- 3pm Spot Prizes:
Everyone who has registered and completed the walk while wearing their child is eligible to win a spot prize. These will be given out via random draw.

- 3:30pm - Finish

*To hire a carrier you will need to be a member of Otepoti Dunedin Carrier Library. A lifetime membership costs just $10 and signup will be available on the day(cash only please). Hire for just the event is free or to hire until the following meet (two weeks) is $5.
