Babywearing 101: Why should you wear a baby in a carrier? I will give an overview of the developmental benefits, emotional bonding, and the physiological need for babywearing. Proper positioning, safety, and breastfeeding/bottle feeding tips will also be highlighted. I will give a brief overview of the four major carrier types. Afterwards, some hand-on time with the carrier library.
Have a burning question or struggling your carrier? This consult is for those who have worn a baby, but want to to try something new and work on their skills. I can help with fit and comfort of your current carrier or help you try a hip or back carry (if appropriate). You can also try other carriers in my library.
Do you have a business or organization that could benefit from babywearing? For example—child care providers, medical professions, special needs caregivers, lactation consultants, and more. I can tailor a class to your group’s needs easily. Price will vary depending on time and prep needed. Online classes available.
