Buckle up and carry on
By MariLaura Sjalig
Buckle carriers are the most common baby carrier used throughout the world because they are easy, approachable, and as familiar to use as a ruck sack or pack sack. In baby carrying education, consultants place a high amount of focus on wraps. Wraps have a higher learning curve to be sure, but we as consultants should know and understand equally as much as about structured. To this, we need to be able to support parents in using them properly and knowing how to adjust them for all body types and situations. MariLaura will discuss the most common features of structured carriers, how to fit a buckle carrier to your client, examine differences in body shapes of men and women, and how to fit them for special needs clients with low or high tone. Many clients have already purchased a carrier before coming to see a consultant. A consultant’s first goal should be to work with the client’s purchase so that they leave your office with a solution in hand. To this end, MariLaura will also cover how to troubleshoot common issues parents face when trying to make their carrier work best for them. Finally, she will discuss how to help parents chose the best option.
