In honor of International Babywearing Week, the theme of the week is babywearing and all of the wonderful carriers we currently have in store! Holli Shiro, one of our amazing team members, put together a wonderful handout on the benefits of babywearing, which you can find on our website.
We recently got in the líllébaby™ EveryWear™ which, for all you carrier junkies, is definitely worth checking out. The líllébaby™ EveryWear™ is a versatile child carrier, featuring multiple sitting positions and all-in-one carrying (outward facing/inward facing, hip or back) from newborn to toddler. The contoured seat offers ergonomic sitting positions and promotes healthy spine development. The Gentle Motion Suspension System™ helps absorb weight and movement, making it comfortable for both parent and child. It retails for $110, so it is also our most affordable SSC. You can read more about the líllébaby™ on their website.
We're also having a sale on all Brown Boxed Beco Baby Carriers so hurry in before we sell out! $20 off in honor of my favorite little canadian, Torsen Elligott, who will be turning one in October. Coupon below.
Read on for some highlights on our classes running in October. We look forward to seeing you in the store soon!
