Antenatal Introduction to Slings Evening Class

This antenatal class is ideal for those parents-to-be, and parents/carers of babies up to six weeks of age, who want to find out more about why carrying matters for their newborn’s arrival. Understanding the “Fourth Trimester” and early baby development is key to beginning to build the secure attachments that will have very positive effects on your child’s future development.

Using a baby carrier is a wonderful way to keep your child close to you where they belong, while giving you your hands back and the freedom to get around. We will show you a range of carriers that are suitable for newborns and young infants, and show you how to put them on safely, using weighted demo dolls, and then your own young baby if appropriate. We will discuss the importance of protecting the airway and ensure you know how to do this confidently. There will be plenty of opportunities to practice and ask questions.

The £30 price of this workshop (ticket is per family unit) includes a free four-week stretchy or Close Caboo hire from the sling library.
