Babywearing is beneficial for both you and your child for many reasons – including bonding, convenience and safety. Come and learn about the different types of carriers and which might be a good fit for your family. We will have several different carriers available for you to try, too!
Do you have questions concerning one of your carriers? Wondering if there is something you need to change or if your baby is in the carrier correctly? Bring your carrier, your baby, and your questions to our Babywearing Clinic with our trained babywearing consultants for group discussion and hands on help. Get the tips and tricks you need to leave the store feeling ready to wear your baby more comfortably.
Please note that Babywearing Clinic is not a one-on-one setting. If you are needing a complete personal instruction on carriers, we recommend setting up a one-on-one consultation with Ali or Karen to go over all of the different types of carriers we have to offer.
