INTRODUCTION TO BABYWEARING

Do you have a new baby or one on the way? Learn an essential parenting skill that will let you have a happy baby and free hands at the same time! Babywearing - using a cloth carrier - is your answer.
Taught by Saskatchewan's Premier Babywearing Instructor Anna Baker from Exhale Parenting, in this class we will talk about why babywearing is awesome and how to do it safely and comfortably. You'll get a handle on the pros and cons of each carrier and a sense of what will work best for your family. You will also get a chance to try out the demo carriers and see what works for you - and of course you'll be able to purchase that night when you find the one that makes you feel like a superhero!
Babies are always welcome. No registration required.
Please note: this class is more "what are my choices?" and less "how do I use this thing?" If you're looking for personalized instruction on how to use a carrier you already own, please consider booking a private consultation with Anna where she can give you the hands-on instruction you deserve.
