Check out the selection of carriers at Tiny Tots, and have a trained Babywearing Consultant help you to find a carrier that will suit your needs and be the most comfortable for you. You will go home confident with your new carrier purchase.

Already have a carrier you need help with? We can fit it to you and your baby, and troubleshoot any comfort issues you may be having.  This session is also a great option for hands-on help with learning a new carry with a carrier you already use and love. If you need help with more than one carrier, up to three sessions (45 minutes) can be purchased in a row.

If you feel like need a little more than that, check out a Private Consultation!

Bring your personal carriers, or try many different carriers from our extensive library to get an idea what works for you. Hands-on help with proper positioning and use, recommendations for carriers that will suit your personal taste, demonstrations, and reference sheets to bring home with you, are just a handful of the many things that can be included in your personalized consultation. After booking a session, a Certified Babywearing Consultant will contact you with some questions to make your consultation something you will be thrilled with.

This is a great gift for a baby shower or an expectant friend or family member. This is a wonderful alternative for those who benefit from learning in a one-on-one environment.

This session includes follow up with your consultant via email or phone, and a gift certificate for $10 off a single carrier of your choice at Tiny Tots.

This 2-day workshop is intended for those who are working as Prenatal and Postpartum educators. It is aimed at improving your skill set with woven wraps, and increasing your ability to teach wrapping through better understanding of wrap mechanics, and demystifying wrapping terminology. We will cover a series of front, hip, and back carries with both a short and long wrap – leading up to fancy finishes at the end of the second day. You will leave feeling confident in your wrapping skills, and your ability to teach wrapping. No prior woven wrap experience is necessary.
