Carrying a Curious Baby – Anne Mcewan, Born to Carry
By their very nature babies are curious. For many babies this means that as they grow, they will want to be carried in a way that allows them to see more of the world around them. In this workshop we will look at different ways to allow babies to see as much of the world around them as they would like to whilst also exploring how we can make sure they are able to turn to the adult carrying them when it becomes too much or they become tired. We will look at parent facing Back, Front and Hip carrying methods using Wraps, Ringslings and Buckle Carriers.

Why Babywearing MattersDr. Rosie Knowles, Sheffield Sling Surgery and Sling Spot, Author of Why Babywearing Matters.

A fun interactive workshop explaining how feelings are created, why mood matters and the value of recognising separate realities. We explore the purpose our feelings serve and why it’s important to allow and validate children’s feelings within a loving, lighthearted environment. By mining for gold through personal stories, we help you reduce mental clutter, gain fresh perspectives and connect with your inner guidance so you can parent from a more peaceful place.
