Using a sling or carrier to care for your baby or child is one more parenting toll in your toolbox that can really make a difference at any stage of development. The joy in a new parents eyes when they discover that they can have their hands free, but still hold their baby who can’t be put down is why I chose to train as a babywearing consultant.
I am a fully qualified and insured babywearing consultant, having completed my training with The School of Babywearing CIC in early 2017. There is nothing quite like seeing the joy in a new parents eyes when they get the use of their arms back by using a sling to keep their newborn close and safe.
I would love to share the joys of using a sling or carrier with your baby or child, and offer the following options –
Standard Consultation (£40 in your home, £30 in my home) – This is a 60-90 minute consultation in the comfort of your home or mine where I can tailor the information provided to your individual needs. Some suggested situations –
- Expectant parents.
- Foster parents.
- Adoptive parents.
- New parents.
- Moving on from a newborn stretchy wrap to another carrier.
- Back carrying.
Mini Consultation (£15 in your home or mine) – This is a 30-45 minute consultation in the comfort of your home or mine to discuss 1 or 2 specific carriers or follow up from a previous consultation to provide tweaks or troubleshoot your own carrier and expand on your knowledge.
Before and After Baby Bundle (£60 in your home, £50 in my home) – This is a package of 2 consultations. A 60-90 minute visit before baby arrives to get ready, followed by a 60-90 minute consultation after baby arrives to troubleshoot any difficulties you may be having, or even when baby is ready to move on from the newborn stretchy wrap.
For all consultations I will do a pre-consult assessment to determine your needs and bring suitable carriers, slings and demonstration dolls with me. Each consultation includes free hire of a carrier until the next closest sling library event in your area, or until your chosen sling purchase arrives.
I have the following types of slings –
- Newborn stretchy wraps and stretchy hybrids
- Full buckle carriers suitable from newborn
- Full buckle carriers suitable for toddlers
- Mei Tai (Asian style carrier)
- Ring Slings
- Woven Wraps
Door Step Collection and Quick Fit (£5 in my home) – This is a 5-10 minute appointment at my home giving you the opportunity to pick up a carrier that you are renting or buying with an opportunity to fit the carrier and make sure you know how to use it.
