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!Read Less

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!Read Less
