This course will prepare the participant to be able to:
• move away from seeing the carrier as just another product and focusing on the practice of babywearing.
• understand the history, current application of use, best methods of teaching, the common errors and questions regarding carrier use.
• see how baby carriers can be used to help facilitate Kangaroo care, breastfeeding, secure attachment, as well as the mental and physical development of the baby. • incorporate this new knowledge into their current practice or begin a new practice.
