During this workshop we will be covering important topics like positioning and safety whilst using buckled carriers, before moving on to the different ways of getting your child onto your back, and then how to get your child back down afterwards.

This workshop is aimed at parents who already have experience carrying, and children aged over 4 months who are sitting unaided with good head control.
