The Center for Babywearing Studies focuses on high-quality training specifically designed to create a well-rounded babywearing educator who has the ability to truly assist others. The skills of teaching and creating a positive environment are critical to the success of the consultant and we will prepare you for that journey. 

You will be able to combine this training with your own personal knowledge to better help the parents in your community.  The course has lots of hands on training and time for discussion of particular issues and concerns for your individual situation.

During the course you will:

  • Learn how to teach others to wear baby carriers: Pouches and ring slings, woven and stretchy wraps, mei tais and SSCs (soft structured carriers), plus a few knots.
  • Examine the physiological and the psychological aspects of infant carrying.
  • Identify how to assist someone in discovering what makes a good carry/carrier for them. 
  • Discover and recognize the importance of a systematic approach.
  • Understand our core principles which will guide you as you meet each new parent.
  • Design your own concept for an individual consultation.
  • Explore sensitive listening and it’s importance in successful consultations.
  • Delve into incident data reports from the CPSC (reports of injury in baby carriers/while babywearing) to better understand what concerns exist with regard to babywearing.
  • Plus much more!
