WEEK 12

Secure High Back Carry

With pre-tied chest belt: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kCUpFiDDp3w

The Secure High Back Carry uses a base-1 wrap and is a good beginner back carry as you have a secure knot on the front as one of your first steps after creating a seat! There is a pre-tied chest belt with hip scoot option as well if you have difficulty getting baby on back/creating a seat, this is a good alternate method to try.

***DETAILS***

ANYONE and ANY LEVEL is welcome to this playdate! Our goal is to bring our community together, have some fun, and celebrate babywearing.

-What should you bring?-

Bring all of your carriers, some of your carriers, or just what you want to let others see and explore. Bring whatever you want from your stash; the more carriers the merrier! If you own one wrap, or none, thats fine. Most importantly, bring YOU! Bring a blanket to sit on, water, snacks, sunscreen, and anything fun to entertain the kiddos.

This space is open and all children are welcome to join. We just ask that you help clean before you leave and take any trash with you.

Looking forward to seeing you all!

***Q & A***

Q: Do I have to bring a carrier (or carriers)?

A: No you don’t! Just come and learn, socialize, and have fun.

Q: Do I have to let people try my carriers?

A: No, you may allow people to explore your carrier as you see fit.

Q: Will there be lending from BWIO/Memberships?

A: There will not be any lending from our library at this playdate/workship, but you can sign up for a membership and check out a carrier at one of our three monthly meetings.

Q: Are people allowing their own personal borrowing?

A: That can be set up between the owner and the tryee at their own discretion. Please make sure you share the appropriate contact information etc as BWIO is not repsonsible for any lost or damaged carriers.

*No FSOT allowed at the event. This can be done before or after the event on your own time. Thank you!
