Registration is per family, not per person.  When you check out, use the comments field to tell us a little about yourself!  How old is your baby?  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!

Back Carrying Basics will help you get your baby on your back and open up a whole new babywearing world!  This is a small group workshop and is appropriate for families with with baby around 6mo old and up.  No back carrying experience is needed to attend.   

Review of Back Carrying Basics from Bean Tree Baby customer, Brianna S.-
"This was a fantastic workshop! I highly recommend it. I was nervous about back carries and had myself convinced that I couldn't do them due to T-Rex arms and post partum wrist pain. Clover and Heather were so helpful and now I can get my little in my back no problem in multiple styles of carriers. So wonderful!"

The cost of our Back Carrying Basics Workshop 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.

Back Carrying Basics workshop covers:
  • Information on optimal positioning for baby’s physical development and parent’s comfort
  • Discussion on "back carrying readiness"
  • Demonstration of two variations for getting a baby on your back
  • Demonstration of a back carry in three types of carriers- Asian inspired baby carrier (mei tai/meh dai/bei dai), soft structured/buckle carrier, and woven wrap
  • Back carrying practice with at least one carrier type (of your own choosing)

The information and demonstration portion of the workshop will run about one hour.  During the second hour you will have an opportunity to practice a back carry in your choice of carrier, with our hands on help.  If you already have a carrier that offers a back carrying option, bring it with you!  Our store sample carriers will be available as well.
