What is NINO?
NINO is a nonprofit babywearing organization. It stands for Nine In, Nine Out. This name is inspired by the work of the renowned anthropologist, Ashley Montagu. In his book Touching (HarperCollins, 1986), Montagu proposed that the first nine months of an infant's life be called "exterogestation", a period that is the same length of time spent in utero. Those of us who love babywearing feel that the best way to simulate the cozy, warm environment of the womb is to carry babies in a sling or babycarrier. But too few people learn about slings in time to put this into practice.


Many people feel that there's a need for a babywearing movement: a way to teach caregivers that all babies would benefit from being worn. That is NINO's primary goal: to promote babywearing by educating the general public about its benefits.
