GOLD MEDAL - Nicole Duraney
“Helped me eat out in peace!”
SILVER MEDAL - Ashley Nash
“Our first carrying experience was at 6 months. It was a cheap carrier and it killed my back. I called it quits because I didn't know about the wide world of carriers.
A few months ago, I learned about the wide array of carriers and that they can accommodate big kids. My son is almost 4 and has Autism. Overall he does really well when we go out, but when he gets tired he just wants to be up (Not easy to carry a child his size).
I started looking into toddler carriers and found one for a great price. When it arrived, I was clueless. We managed to get the thing put together and him in it, but he was literally sitting on my butt and my shoulders were taking all of his weight. Thankfully, we were only days away from a BWI meeting. We were able to meet up with an educator, learn how to use our carrier, and I was able to learn how to safely get him into it solo.
From that moment on, we have used our carrier and been able to ditch our bulky stroller. We have seen fireworks, gone to zoos and amusement parks, attended parades, and hunted Pokemon. He feels safe and so do I. It's a great place for him to escape from everything else.
I'm currently out of commission due to a shoulder injury. But I am counting down the days until I can carry him again.”
BRONZE MEDAL - Megan Zander
“Tandem wearing has been the best. Baby only wants mama and my newly 2 year old isn't adjusting well to life with a sibling. Both get to snuggle me and I'm not stuck on the couch all day”

The BRONZE medal winner will receive a BWI of Cleveland car decal!
