This day is in honor of all the children with disabilities across the world that benefit from babywearing. Lift Me Up officially launched on April 23, 2014, and we have served nearly 2000 families across the United States and Canada. We are celebrating not only our recipients, but families ALL over the world who babywear to thrive. We love hearing from all corners of the world- so share your story with us by using our hashtag and tell us how you #babyweartothrive. Celebrate with us!
Lift Me Up is a non-profit program which provides ergonomic babywearing carriers to families who have children with disabilities. Babywearing is a unique therapeutic tool that can benefit both the child and the caregiver. We provide carriers to qualified families who have a child with a developmental special need and who do not already own a carrier.
We love hearing how babywearing is helping with their child's sensory issues, regulating their temperature as infants, providing the correct positioning to improve hip dysplasia issues, helping keep g-tubes and oxygen wires in place instead of being tangled and twisted, allowing their child to feel safe and secure, or helping the caregiver cope with daily tasks such as washing the dishes or handling doctor appointments - all because they have their hands free, thanks to the carrier.
A few of the recipients that we have had the pleasure of serving have been diagnosed with cerebral palsy, spina bifida, Down syndrome, osteogenesis imperfecta (brittle bone disease), autism, among others. Their spirits are beautiful, and we feel privileged to help their families thrive. To learn more about our organization, please visit our website. Since we are volunteers, all donations and funds go directly to helping families babywear to thrive. Read about how your dollars are used, and also learn all of the ways you can support our mission- including setting Lift Me Up as your charity on Amazon Smile!
