Sometimes, using a baby carrier comes naturally. Sometimes, it takes practice. We will teach you the ABCs of babywearing (Airway, Body Positioning, and Comfort) with a variety of baby carrier styles to help you achieve a safe and satisfying fit for you and your child. According to a study published in the journal, Pediatrics, babies who are carried cry less than babies who are not carried, especially in the evening. And according to moms, it’s difficult to carry a baby without a carrier for hours on end because it is fatiguing and challenging to do other things around the house.

Salus University occupational therapy graduate intern, Melissa Tucker, with supervision by Drs. Lauren Sponseller and Caitlin Foy, will be leading this workshop.

This class is FREE. No Registration is required. All babies are welcome!
