Is your babe yearning to face forward and see the world ahead? We all love the snuggles of a front carry, but eventually babies just get curious, and heavy. Or too big to reach around when dinner needs to get cooked! Diving into back carries can feel intimidating on your own.

Learn how to wear your baby on your back in your soft structured carrier or mei tai in a supportive setting with an educator on hand to watch, give tips, and spot! In this 45 minute class, we will teach several methods to get your baby on your back, and how to adjust your carrier afterwards for maximum comfort for you and your baby, even without monkey arms. We’ll also discuss how to tell if your carrier is properly sized to you and your baby, and options for what to do if it is not. You will learn methods of head support for sleeping babies, and how to check on your baby while in a back carry and adjustment tweaks that can make your back carrying experience more comfortable. We’ll also show you various tie-offs for a mei tai carrier.

Recommended for babies 6 months and older. Your baby should be able to sit up unassisted before wearing on your back in a soft structured carrier.

Due to the technical nature of these classes, space is extremely limited. Advanced sign up required.
