How on earth do I tie this long wrap thing? Why doesn't my ring sling feel right? What can I do to make my buckle carrier comfortable? Where do I even start? These are all questions that will be answered in this Babywearing 101 class! Whether you are expecting a child or already have one (or more!), this class is perfect for understanding different types of carriers and how to use them. I'll demonstrate starter carries with a stretchy wrap (like a Moby), a ring sling, a woven wrap, and the basics of a buckle carrier (like the Ergo). We will also go over where to start if you have not yet purchased a carrier, including different resources for purchasing carriers. Questions and personal fit checks are welcome and encouraged! This class is limited so that we can have lots of hands-on time with carriers. Non-mobile babies welcome. I will have newborn and infant sized weighted demo dolls for practice and demonstration. Class is 2.5 hours and located at Ohlson Integrative Health in Mill Creek.
