Win your favorite baby carrier, learn about new carriers! Enter here!

Did you know it is time to celebrate something traditional but seen as new-aged?

It's International Babywearing Week, and to celebrate, we're participating in a huge event, that includes Giveaways, and is hosted by Happy Mothering, as well as Eco-Crazy Mom and Green Moms Media.

Eight lucky readers will win a baby carrier - it helps keep babies close... Will you be the winner!?

These wonderful babywearing sponsors are providing the following carriers to eight lucky winners:

Onya Baby Carrier {$149 value; US/CAN entries}

A new one to me is the Onya Baby Carrier. Apparently it allows traditional babywearing on your front and back – but also enables you to convert nearly any adult chair into a safe seat for your baby, and is the only carrier to do so! Plus it is good for children up to 45 pounds. Read the Happy Mothering's review here.

The Kozy Carrier Mei Tai, sponsored by QuirkyBaby {$89 value; US entries}

Mei tais are asian inspired carriers and the Kozy is one such carrier. This one features a breast cancer awareness pattern, since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This carrier is versatile with two-shoulder straps and is great for  newborns through toddlers and has flexible and adjustable shoulder and waist straps that will fit most baby wearers.

Ergobaby Organic Lattice Carrier {$145 value; US/CAN entries}

Ergo Organic CarrierThe Ergobaby Organic Carrier has all the advantages of the original Ergobaby carrier, including being crafted with soft 100% certified organic cotton twill and sateen. The carrier has padded shoulder straps which helps for comfort and the waist belt is padded as well to comfortably distribute baby’s weight between your shoulders and hips. The carrier holds and cradles your baby just the way you do, with your baby’s legs properly supported in a natural sitting position.

Catbird Baby Mei Tai Carrier {$89 value; US/CAN entries}

The Catbird Baby Mei Tai Carrier is simple yet beautifully designdl. No worries about buckles or straps and no wrapping required.

Snuggy Baby Wrap {$56.00 value; US entries}

Snuggy Baby CarrierWith comfort, style and support, the Snuggy Baby wraps have everything that you could want in a baby carrier in wrap style. This baby carrier is entirely adjustable so one size fits all. It works well between various care givers in a variety of body types. Because how you wear it is versatile you create a custom fit every time you tie it on. This allows the wrap continually grows with your child, ensuring that they get a comfortable secure fit from the time that they come home until you are ready to stop carrying them (generally around 35 lbs. or 3 years). The decorative panel lets you avoid having the same old boring solid wrap that you see everywhere else, and there are many designs to choose from!

I love babywearing! My first was a mei tai which I gave to my sister a year ago after she had her baby boy. It is so comfortable and brings you and your baby so close. I would love to win because I am having my little one in 7 days!!!! This would be awesome to win!

I loved my ergobaby with my first born, now I'm pregnant with my second and I can see using it so much more with a toddler running around!

I love babywearing...I never knew how much I would love it before having my little baby boy but it has become by far my favorite way of moving around with him. I currently use both a Beco and a mei tai but would LOVE to try a Boba, an Ergo, or another men tai, in particular...I've always wanted to try woven wraps but am always worried that all the fussing around with it will make my squirmer antsy and uncooperative.

I would love to try out the Onya. I have a Olives and applesauce carrier I love, but I would like to have more variety.
