Nošenje beba je vještina. Treba ju naučiti, uvježbati i usavršavati.

Tražili su me da napišem nešto o sebi i svojoj obitelji. Lakše mi je pisati o nosiljkama i nošenju nego o tome. O sebi jednostavno ne razmišljam. U nošenju se vidim tek kao posrednica između jedne vještine i roditelja ili staratelja.
My name is Iris Božić and I'm a babywearing consultant from Zagreb, Croatia. I'm a mother of a playful and happy toddler Adrian and a wife to Alan who enthusiastically enjoys and shares babywearing love with me. Back when I was still pregnant and carrying Adrian under my heart I was wondering what I will be carrying him in when he pops into the big white world. I soon bought my first sling and learned all the benefits of babywearing out of a necessity (hence necessity is the mother of invention). My baby boy suffered from reflux and babywearing became his medicine, my ally and source of comfort for the both of us. Babywearing was not entirely an intuitive act for me, it was a skill I had to master to help him and help my family. After a few months I discovered there is a small but steadily growing babywearing community in Croatia, and it got me to a point where I had to apply for a course in Die Trageschule to learn how to teach others the skill of wearing babies, and help them cope with the big challenge of being a new parent, or caregiver. There are just a few consultant in Croatia now and I'm very happy to be among the pioneers of popularization of babywearing in my country. I'm giving open and free workshops to spread the good word on babywearing through an open and welcoming approach, running a free lending sling library Nosiljkoteka, and organising meet ups several times a week. I've done several interviews and wrote articles for local magazines on babywearing, and I'm writing a babywearing blog on nosenjebeba.com ("nošenje beba" literally means "wearing babies") where I'm translating and adapting the terminology, and educating my readers on different subjects like how to wear their baby in a safe way, and how to chose the right carrier which meets their needs and desires. Now a new baby is in the oven and there are new challenges and adventures on the way.
Onbuhimo je vrsta nosiljke koja sve više dobiva na popularnosti iz mnogo različitih razloga. Namijenjen je starijim bebama koje se već dižu uz namještaj (ili najranije kad već stabilno sjede samostalno).
