Babywearing 101 : Choosing A Baby Carrier
Baby carriers do good things for babies. They help with feeding cues, settle gassy stomachs, build strength, lessen crying and improve sleep. They also allow parents to keep their children close while attending to their own needs. In the city, the practical benefits are obvious - it’s simply way easier to maneuver in tight spaces like buses, stairways and shops with a carrier - oh, and your hands are free too! :) In this 90-minute seminar, we introduce 5 excellent carrier options for young babies, show you exactly what about them parents love, and help you choose the perfect one for your family. With help from one of the most experienced Babywearing Educators in NYC, the last 30 minutes of class are dedicated to helping you touch, feel, learn about, and even try on our selection of woven and stretchy wraps, ring slings and soft-structured carriers.
This class is ideal for expectant families, and families with newborns, who are interested in choosing a new baby carrier and learning about all of their babywearing options in one sitting. If you need help learning how to use a carrier that you already own, please check out our monthly Babywearing 102 clinic! Not sure which class to choose? Ask our staff to help point you in the right direction!
