Frequently Asked Questions

If your question isn't covered here, please send us an email.

I have a hand-me-down carrier.  Can you help me with it? 

Absolutely!  We can work through gifted carriers, new and well-loved, to determine what works well for you and your child. Please try to have all of the pieces and accessories on hand. 

 

I've tried several things, but they're all uncomfortable.  Am I doomed? 

Definitely not.  There are 5 major carrier types, and many varieties of carriers, brands and sizes within those types. There are also many, many tweaks and adjustments we can make to improve comfort within the carriers you've already tried. 

 

What's the best carrier? 

The one you'll use.  Almost any carrier can work for you, but the best one is the one you like the most. Aesthetics don't affect fit, but they will make you more or less likely to use the carrier, so when buying, select one you love to look at.  

 

I like to wear my baby, but my spouse/partner/nanny/family caregiver is reluctant. Can you help?

I can try! We can try other carrier types, discuss benefits to both child and wearer, and customize the consultation to address their concerns. 

 

I have an older child and just learned about babywearing. Is it too late, or can I wear my toddler now?

You definitely can. I'd love to help you find the right carrier and techniques for you and your toddler.

 

I'd really like to wear my newborn on my back.  Can you help? 

I can. Carries with newborns are a little more complex, but can give you far more freedom of movement while babywearing and let you do so much that might not work well in a front carry. Newborn back carry consultations are very highly customized and may take longer than a standard consultation. Please reach out for a quote.

 

I'm just not sure your pricing is in my budget. Do you offer any discounts?

I don't have any specific discounts, but please reach out and we'll find a solution. I'm here to help.
