Testimonials

Not sure how babywearing education will work for you? Read and see how babywearing helped these wonderful families!


"Working out how to successfully wear Peter during our class has really improved our lives. I can now leave the house without being worried about him getting fussy and needing to nap. As long as I keep moving, he is now calmer and usually naps better being worn than at home. He is also happier to play independently when I have worn him for part of the day.


You were so patient and helpful during the class. You have a wonderful way with babies and really helped us to decipher Peter and understand what he likes and dislikes. Before your class, I was always worried about whether Peter was positioned safely and comfortably when wearing him, and felt intimidated by all the different types of carriers. You gave me the skills and confidence to persevere with babywearing. Thank you!"- Clara F. 


"Practical advice on a large variety of wraps and styles. I immediately felt welcome and comfortable. I learned a lot."- Gordon and Elizabeth M.
