We hope you all can come to Babywearing Wellington's next slingmeet
from 10 am on Friday 2 March, 2012
at the Southern Cross http://www.thecross.co.nz/
39 Abel Smith St, Te Aro, Wellington.
We have a short presentation on a particular aspect of Babywearing, following by an informal session when you can try a range of different carrier types, ask any questions you like, hire a carrier from our library or just chat with some friendly folk over a coffee.
This month's presentation is about wrap style carriers
Wrap style carriers are the jack-of-all-trades when it comes to babywearing: they distribute the weight of the baby over shoulders and back, adapt to all sizes of wearers and babies, and can be tied to accommodate wearing baby on the front, hip or back. Emma and Sarah C will talk about woven and stretchy wraps and we’ll demonstrate a few carries.
We're happy to answer any questions you may have about all aspects of babywearing and about any type of baby carrier. Please feel free to bring any questions you have with you on Friday, or contact us at any time.
Baby carrier library
Babywearing Wellington members can hire baby carriers from our "library" for $5 per week. Our library includes stretchy wraps, a woven wrap, mei tais, a Manduca and an ErgoBaby carrier. It only costs you $10 to join, and all proceeds go towards running and updating the library, and to keeping our meetings free.
You don’t have to wait until the slingmeet to hire a carrier or become a member: Contact us anytime via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
... or come along to Friday's meeting.
