Interested in babywearing but not sure what the best carrier for you will be? Or maybe you already have a carrier or two but in trying on by yourself they don't feel quite right? Bean Tree Baby's Newborn Babywearing Workshop is geared towards expectant families and those with newborns (birth to three months old) who are interested in learning the basics of babywearing. In a small group setting, we will help you gain confidence and get comfortable wearing your baby!
This workshop covers:
- Information on optimal positioning for baby’s physical development and parent’s comfort
- Demonstration of the five main types of carriers (pouch, ring sling, wrap, bei dai/meh dai/mei tai, and soft structured carrier)
- Hands on instruction and practice time with the carrier(s) of your choice
- Pros and cons of different carrier types and how to choose what's right for you
You are welcome to and encouraged to bring your baby! If you are pregnant we also have weighted dolls available for trying on carriers. Please bring any carriers you already own you want help with; Our store demo carriers will be available for trying on as well.
Interested in joining us? We have limited space available for our workshops (4 families), so register in advance to make sure you get a spot! You may register and purchase your space for an upcoming workshop by choosing a date and paying online. The cost of our Newborn Babywearing Workshop is $20 (plus tax) per family and you will receive a $10 store coupon in return.
