Babywearing 101 Workshop for Expectant & Newborn Families
Registration is per family, not per person. When you check out, use the comments field to tell us a little about yourself! Are you expecting a baby soon or will you be bringing your new little one with you? Do you have a partner or spouse who may tag along as well? Give us a heads up so we can plan our space to accommodate everyone as well as possible!
Interested in "wearing" your baby in a carrier but not sure what to choose? Bean Tree Baby's Babywearing 101 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!
The cost of our Babywearing 101 Workshops is $20 ($18.81 plus tax) per family and you will receive a $10 store coupon in return. The coupon can be used towards a purchase of a carrier after the workshop or a future purchase of a carrier through our store.
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, mei tai, and soft structured carrier)
- Pros and cons of different carrier types and how to choose what's right for you
The information and demonstration portion of the workshop will run about one hour. After the presentation, there will be time for you try on different carriers with our help. In general, the babywearing 101 workshop is meant to be a primer for people with little or no experience with baby carriers so that they can hear about and see what the options are. At the end of a workshop, we hope that you can walk away feeling ready to choose and use a baby carrier!
