March Slingmeet – Wrap style carriers

Friday 7th March

10 – 12pm

The Southern Cross Bar and Restaurant
39 Abel Smith St, Te Aro
(In the “Guest Room”)
This month’s presentation is “Wrap Style Carriers″

Wrap style carriers are the jack-of-all-trades when it comes to babywearing: they distribute the weight of the baby over shoulders and back, adapt to all sizes of wearers and babies, and can be tied to accommodate wearing baby on the front, hip or back.  Anne will talk about both woven and stretchy wraps and Karakate and Hester will demonstrate a few different carries for you too. 

After the presentation, there will be time to hire any of the carriers that are available in our library. We can also help guide and troubleshoot with your existing carrier, so be sure to bring it along.

Baby carrier library

Babywearing Wellington members can hire baby carriers from our carrier library for $5 per week. Our library includes stretchy wraps, woven wraps, mei tais, SSCs and ring slings. It only costs you $10 to become a member, and all proceeds go towards running and updating the library, and to keeping our meetings accessible.

More information about our carrier library can be found here and join us on Facebook here

Bring your friends!
Our meetings are open to the public, so please feel free to invite anyone you think might be interested – friends, family, other mums and dads… you don’t have to have a baby to be a babywearing supporter!

Please note: The Babywearing Wellington Committee is a voluntary group of people passionate about babywearing, but we are not necessarily experts on everything to do with babywearing.  At slingmeets, we might not be able to get around to everyone, or have the wisdom within our group to assist with your problem.  We’re happy to answer any questions you may have about all aspects of babywearing and about any type of baby carrier, but if you have a burning carrier question that really needs to be addressed at this slingmeet, it’d be great if you could message us prior to the meet and we will try our darndest to have the answer and/or carrier to hand.
