Babywearing—using baby carriers to carry your baby on your body—offers many benefits for parents and babies, from enhanced bonding to simple convenience. In this three-hour workshop, expectant parents learn the ins and outs of choosing and using baby carriers safely and comfortably. Topics include the biology of babywearing, types of popular carriers, choosing the right carriers for your family, ensuring comfort and safety, and troubleshooting. In addition to lecture, demonstration, and plenty of time for Q&A, parents also have the opportunity to “test-drive” a variety of carriers with weighted dolls.
