Katie is a passionate babywearer and believes carriers are not only a registry must have, but also an important tool in the parenting tool kit. Carriers calm crying, give parents and caregivers free hands, and help create a strong bond between wearer and wearee.
Babywearing Consult for Beginners:
In this two hour consult, Katie will teach you important safety tips, familiarize you with the main types of carriers, and teach you how to use each comfortably and safely.
