How to Nurture Child Development With Babywearing
This workshop is a compliment to parents, caregivers, and professionals who enjoy learning ways to make the biggest impact on a little life.
In this 60-minute information session, we will explore:
- the history of parenting
- the significance of close contact
- traditional carrying cultures
- the advantages and disadvantages of certain carrying positions
- the anatomy of a newborn
- the benefits of babywearing
You will also have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience using the Helina Baby Mei Tai Carrier, as well as woven wraps, ring slings and soft structured carriers (with your baby or with a demo doll) to learn best practices for keeping baby safe and secure.
The goals of this workshop are to create awareness of a baby's needs; encourage the safe, supportive, and secure use of a carrier; and enhance the bonding experience between parent and child.
