This Course is For You

We created this course with modern parents in mind. Can you relate to this?

  • You have a baby carrier on your registry you don't know how to use.

  • You bought a carrier, but both you and your baby HATE it!

  • You'd love for your spouse/partner, a grandparent, nanny or babysitter to use a carrier, but you don't have the time to find the right carrier for them or show them how to use it.

  • You really don't want to waste any more time scrolling through zillions of online reviews and mom blogs.

  • You want to upgrade to a new carrier

    This course encompassed everything and more! Not only did the course demonstrate how to put on the carriers, but it also demonstrated proper ways to get out of the carriers. I imagine many moms are more concerned with setting up the carrier and baby correctly that they wouldn't think about removing the carrier until put into the scenario. Fantastic course!

    This babywearing course was extremely informative and helpful to me as a preschool teacher + babysitter, I'm so glad I took it! The instructor even introduced me to some carriers I didn't know existed! Even when it came to carriers I have previously used, I definitely learned how to use them in different carries that I hadn't known about before. Because I take care of multiple babies of varying ages, I never know which carrier the parents may use for their child so I love that I'm now familiar with the many different options and I feel confident that I could use them all! On top of this, I also love how throughly safety is discussed in this course as strapping babies in to carriers (especially back carries!) can be daunting at first, but the instructor perfectly shows how it easy and user friendly babywearing in any position is!

Stephanie, Preemie Mom

"Lori counseled me on how to properly wear a preemie and greatly increased the amount of skin-to-skin contact I could have with her at that crucial time in my baby's life. She came for a follow up after we arrived home and I can honestly say that knowing how to wear my baby greatly increased my quality of life and decreased all of our stress levels and I will be forever thankful. I would highly recommend any classes and/or services this team offers to any new mother."

I recommend them to all my friends!"
