    Carrie Loe Davis is a certified babywearing educator and owner of Sweet Baby Wraps, an online babywearing boutique. Carrie loves to serve as a volunteer babywearing educator with the Seattle chapter of Babywearing International and is a past speaker at the International Babywearing Conference. Carrie is the mom to three kids and has enjoyed the life saving benefits of babywearing with each of her girls.

    NAPS Doulas is excited to present this continuing education event focused on baby wearing!  We will get to play with the carriers and weighted demo dolls so that you are comfortable with the different types of carriers. There will be a variety of carriers to try out with an emphasis on Carrie’s top newborn recommendations.

    During this class we will explore and discuss:

    -Why babywearing is such a powerful tool for new moms and dads (and other caregivers!)
    -What proper positioning looks like in ANY carrier
    -How to help new parents learn how to use their carrier
    -Plus a bit on kangaroo care and working with preemies

     

    This is a 2hr class and will count toward your NAPS continuing education requirements.
