Cloth Diapering 101
STOP all the researching! When it comes to cloth diapers, there is too much information out there, and it is overwhelming! Why waste your time on the computer when you can come by, sit for a workshop, get all your questions answered and learn things you hadn't even thought to ask all along. Best part of it all, you get to touch the cloth diapers along with accessories such as doublers, inserts, wet bags, pail liners, stay-dry liners, snappi's, etc... and play with them all.

What about the smell?
Do I really have to soak them?
How much longer will it take for me to change my little one?
What about the washing?
How many do I need to start with?

These questions and more will be answered.

* Must pre register to attend.

* Cost is $10

Baby Wearing 101
Whether you're an expecting parent or already have a little one, this class is for you. We will be discussing different types of carriers such as pouches, ring slings, Mei Tai's, structured and stretchy wraps, pros and cons of each, as well as demonstrating and helping to properly size you in the most comfortable carrier for your and your little one.  We will have a full selection of baby carriers to try on.

With the proper fitting, babies can be carried for several years. You can try on all of our demos to see what works best with you and your baby, bring your own carriers and learn how to wear them "properly" for the correct positioning of your little one, and learn what baby carriers are the best for newborns vs. older babies.

We'll also discuss which carriers may cause some concerns when it comes to placement of the babies hips, legs, spine and neck.

There are more out there than the ones you just see at the big box stores, and we will discuss why we don't carry specific types.

* Must pre register to attend due to space.

* Cost is $10
