Not only do I have some possible interest from local baby shops (more information will follow in coming months, watch this space), I am booked in to complete the Advanced Trageschule course next month with Anne McEwan of Trageschule UK. I am hoping that the advanced course will consolidate my knowledge of the scientifically proven benefits to baby carrying, and give me the opportunity to work on my face to face consultation techniques. I already have a nice long list of preparatory work to do.
I’ve already been teaching carrying for a long time, four years now. I have been mostly self taught, and learned a huge amount through experience, but I have enjoyed becoming official through Trageschule. Here I am in 2008.
Best of all, more news on the library expansion – two more Bondolinos, a Patapum and a Vatanai short wrap are on their way to the library. I hope to break the 70 carriers mark before this site launches on August 1st!
The library site is a work in progress but hopefully you’ll agree there is a fair amount of information here now.
The library is open tomorrow from 10-3.30pm. Has to be 3.30pm as I’m invited to go and meet my daughter’s reception teacher for next year.
Many more carriers are on their way to the library right now, including a Storchenwiege wrap, a Beco soft structured carrier, a Patapum soft structured carrier, a Hop-Tye mei tai and a new petrol Manduca to add to our brown butterflies.
Congratulations to our winner Helen Jonah who has a pair of rainbow babylegs on the way to her after winning our Facebook competition. For your chance to win in future competitions, make your way over to the WYSL facebook page and click ‘like’.
The library will be open throughout the school holidays, which means I will have my little sling apprentice here to help. Here she is showing her sling skills.
slings and carriers there are available to rent.
