A consultation with a babywearing consultant…
If you would like to have help learning to wear your baby, please contact me. Prior to a consultation, we will talk about what you want to learn and with which wrap or carrier we will work during the consult. Usually I will come to your home, but at my home is also one of the possibilities. Depending on the location where the consultation will take place, travelling cost may be charged additionally to the price of the consultation. (See at the bottom of this page.)
Why consult a babywearing consultant?
With a consultation, you ‘buy’ security, comfort and more ability to enjoy. What you are actually investing in, are knowledge and skills that you can enjoy for quite a long time. Joy which one cannot express in money. And in case of a baby carrier fitting consultation, you buy off a lot of time and energy to maybe buy several baby carriers and try to sell them again, ór you ‘buy’ the security that you are purchasing a baby carrier that you, maybe also your partner, and your baby fit well and that does not annoy your body or cause physical problems. At Draagadvies Amsterdam Babywearing Consultation Amsterdam you are asured of adequate advice from an educated babywearing consultant with a lot of experience and knowledge of products.

A standard consult takes more than 1 hour up to 1,5 hour. You learn one carry with a woven wrap or the stretchy wrap or a mei tai. I take the time to go through the stages of wrapping to be sure you learn to wrap safely and comfortable. The first time practising we will use a special carry-doll.

Carrier adjustment consultation
Do you already own an ergonomic carrier, but it is not comfortable? You don’t know what you have to do to get a good fit? Or maybe you doubt whether your baby is positioned right in the carrier. During the carrier adjustment consultation I will explain a bit about ergonomics and how to apply this knowledge, using your carrier. I help you adjust your carrier well, so you know what you have to do to get a good fit for both you and your child, each time you use the carrier. This consultation takes about 45 minutes. The costs are € 40. For a couple it costs €55. For two carriers it costs €55 and for a couple and two carriers, it costs €70.

It is also possible to learn how to wear your baby with a wrap, ring sling, mei tai or ergonomic carrier in a group. I will teach you all the ins and outs of one type of carrying. The group consists of 3 to 6 people. Check the AGENDA (in Dutch) to know if there is a workshop coming up soon. You can also ask me about the possibilities to organize a workshop yourself, which I can fill in according to your wishes. Please feel free to contact me about this.
During a demonstration I will show all different kinds of carrying products and tell about the advantages and disadvantages of every product. You will be enabled to make a choice for use right now and you get an idea of what you might want to use in the nearby future. If you have made a choice, I can shortly go through one carry. We will use a special babywearing doll for that.
Notice: this is NOT a babywearing consult! If you want to learn wel how to carry your baby with a woven wrap, stretchy wrap, ring sling or mei tai, you can book a consult.
