CONSULTANCY SESSIONS

Why to book a session?

Babywearing is a very handy tool to master when a little member comes to your family. At the very beginnig you can feel overwhelmed by the choices and possibilities out there. We, the trained consultants help families to find the best type of carrying aid and method suitable for you and your family. This way you will be saving time, money and energy…

How does it work?

A consultation session is the time when you will have my full attention only focused on your needs. That’s why I ask questions before we meet; to understand your needs and be prepared according to them.

At the beginning of the session I will first explain the basics of ergonomic carry. Through our session we will use a special demo doll to practice the tie/carrier. We will follow the three basic steps of carrying one by one; preparing the carrier/wrap, putting the baby into the carrier and finally getting the baby out of it. I will first show the steps with a demo doll, then we will do it together again with demo dolls. We can of course repeat these steps if needed. At the end of the session I will give you a step by step outline of the tie we practiced so you can turn back and have a look when you want to try by yourself.

You do not have to have a wrap or a carrier before coming to the consultation. There is enough in my library to practice and understand. If you want to try a specific type/brand of a carrier please tell before we meet. You can find the list of the carriers in my library on “Sling Library” section. 

It is really important to focus on the type of consultation you chose before. Diving into other topics will decrease the efficiency of our session. 

Types of Seesions

Basic Consultation – 90 to 120min – 60€

You want to carry your baby but with what? A woven wrap or a stretchy wrap? What is a meitai, why is it different from a half buckle? You decided to order a full buckle, will it be canvas or a wrap conversion?

The answer to “Which is best?” really depends on your preferences. It is about how you and your baby feel comfortable. 

In this session you will learn the differences between different carrier types. You will have a chance to try and find out which suits you best.

This consultation is great for first timers. It is also a great gift to your expectant friends.

Learn a Knot – 90 to 120min – 60€

Woven wraps are the most versatile carriers of all. They are good for every age of the child. Especially for the first months, I can say that they are the best. If you want to learn how to tie a woven wrap this session is for you. We can work on one of these knots;

  • FWCC (front wrap cross carry)
  • Ruck sack carry; Recommended for babies who can sit on their own
  • Ring sling

You do not have to have a woven wrap to come to the consultation. I have enough to try out.

Carrier/Knot Fitting – 30min – 20€

Do you already tie a wrap but you need some improvements with it? Do you already have an ergonomic* carrier and want to understand its mechanics and make the most out of it? Then this consultation is for you.

Lots of parents have great carriers but do not know how to adjust it so they leave it in a cupboard. Never forget small changes make great differences.

 

*I cannot give advice on non-ergonomic carriers. The bottom of the carrier must support the baby’s bum from one knee to the other, it should give good support to the baby’s back and head appropriately. I may ask which carrier you have already before making an appointment.

Additional Points To Consider

Hygiene;   All my carriers are cleaned with baby friendly cleansers and safe to touch a newborn’s skin.

Special needs/dissabilities;   I am not trained on special needs and/or disabilities. If you have such a condition please say it before the session so I can give you contact details of my consultant friends who are experienced and trained on these conditions.

Photos and Social Media;  I like to take photos of the end result. This way we can always go back and look at what and how we achieved. I kindly ask you to choose one of the following:

  • You can take a photo and share on social media with my face visible
  • You can take a photo and share on social media without my face
  • You can take a photo only for your consultation library, no social media allowed
  • I do not want my photos taken

Reminders;  

  • Our session time begins when we meet either in my place or your place.
  • My business is registered to KVK. That means I pay taxes on my earnings.
  • Payment will be done after the consultation. I make an invoice to your name, you can either pay by Ideal or make a bank transfer to the given bank account. Cash is not accepted.
  • If you will not be able to come, please inform at least one day before. If you do not show up at the time we agreed I have to charge half of the price.
  • If you are coming with your baby I recommend you to bring someone to look after the little one. This way you can benefit maximum from the consultation.
