Well done to everyone who worked so hard to make International Babywearing Week a success!
Two lucky ladies won Onbags as part of the celebrations, one in Southampton, one in Hungary!
Zsofi who helped to organise the Hungarian event (http://hordozas.hu/hordozashete2009/) sent me this lovely email:
"I just got these from the happy winner, Viktoria, mum of two little girls from north east hungary, Eger.
She loves the bag and sends you her fond wishes!
Here is her daughter Laura also sporting the babywearing week t-shirt."
Viktoria was lucky enough to win an Onbag ByEthicals Special Edition, in Autumn Scrappy Stripe.
And, nearer home, in Southampton, Debbie wrote to tell me about their event:
We had some very generous donations which enabled us to hold a charity raffle and auction, as well as having a cake stall.
One of the prizes which was donated to our auction was an Onbag Classic, which was won by Carol.
The event was very well attended and we raised over £200 for the charity of our choice, Best Beginnings.

Many congratulations to the organisers of both events, and many happy years of babywearing to all concerned!
I am very pleased, proud and excited to tell you all that the latest addition to the Onbag Family is now here! Designed to fit your Onbag perfectly, they will also transform any other bag - making it organised and beautiful.
These 'zones' are Onbag's answer to the pocket, they make it easy to organise your bag, to swap things around for different outings or to take just what you need when you go for a nappy-change.
Made by ByEthicals, each is beautiful and unique - as well as being easily identifiable inside your bag.
They come in four shapes: cube, brick, flat and square. You can choose from simple, but beautiful fabric, or one of the lovely appliquéd designs. Each one has two handy loops; to go over your wrist or clip to the elastic loops on your Onbag.
Use them to suit exactly what you need to carry, and what you need with you on that particular day. Never lose things in the bottom of your bag again, or have things spill all over the floor!
Personally... I have
...but you'll be completely different from me!
I would suggest starting with one brick and one cube, and see how you go...
You can't beat these for versatility, practicality and easy organisation!
