Babywearing Courses

Categories: , Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

Are you interested in attending babywearing courses either online or in person? Perhaps you would like to become a peer supporter or a babywearing consultant.

Here is a list of organisations that offer babywearing courses both peer support and consultancy, in alphabetical order. Please click on the links for more information.

Peer Supporter Babywearing  Courses

Peer Supporters are usually parents who love using slings and want to share this with their local communities. They have attended one day of training from one of the two main providers in the UK and have sufficient knowledge to support parents on a peer to peer level. Many run sling libraries. Many use this training alongside other qualifiations, such as antenatal classes, fitness classes, babycare classes and so on. Many will have a greater depth of experience than their training will suggest; there is a huge variation!

Born To Carry

School of Babywearing

Babywearing Consultant Training Courses in the UK/Ireland

A sling and carrier consultant is one who has taken their training to the next level of professionalism, attending courses that are often three or four days long. They are teachers, who have a greater depth of knowledge and expertise in sling use than peer supporters. Many run library sessions as well as more personal services such as small group workshops, antenatal classes or one to one teaching sessions.  Just like peer supporters, consultants may vary widely in their experience and expertise.

There are several different babywearing courses on offer in the UK and it is worth investigating further which will suit you best. The majority are BABI recognised (the British Association of Babywearing Instructors is the UK professional body.) Some courses offer ongoing CPD (continuing professional development).
Here is a helpful article from Lorette (at the Slingababy School) about how to choose which one might suit you best.

Sling Advice Resources

Categories: , Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

Parents often want to know where their local sling advice resources can be found, to get some help with carrying their baby safely. Personal support can be invaluable when it comes to getting to grips with using and enjoying a sling. Here is a Google Map of all the places in the UK and Ireland where you can get trained help with slings and carriers. www.tinyurl.com/slingmap It contains the details of

  • all the sling and carrier consultants (all should be insured, some are registered with BABI)
  • all the sling libraries
  • all the sling meets

Simply enter your location on the map and find the nearest markers! (If your local sling resource is not here, please contact us for them to be added!) Not sure what a babywearing consultant is or how they can help you? Melissa from Tribal Babies explains more here. Alternatively, scroll through the areas below. If you press the CTRL key and F, a little Find box should appear for you to type in your area

http://www.facebook.com/storkandthebees/
Welcome to Stork and The Bees! We hire out a range of slings and cloth nappies to parents and carers so you are able to try before you buy. Slings are like shoes, it’s not one size fits all, so it is definitely worth trying a variety before you decide which one is right for you and your baby/child. Cloth nappies are also very much about personal preference. Currently meeting the 3rd Monday of the month 10:00-12:00 but will increase frequency soon.
