Our Certified Babywearing Educator can come to your home to show you how to comfortably wear your baby in a carrier or wrap. Babywearing allows you to get things done at home and get out of the house much more easily. Leave your heavy stroller at home and cease worrying about where the elevator is, or how you will navigate your trip. Learn to carry your baby in a way that will result in less stress for you and less crying for your baby!
Babywearing is great for:
- Parents of multiples
- Babies who needs to be held more often
- Bonding with your baby/toddler
- Babies with reflux who needs to be held upright after feeding
- Being able to take your baby out and be hands-free
