If you find our group sessions too hectic, or have any special carrying needs, then you might prefer to book a Private Consultation. At our home in Beckenham, Emily uses her extensive experience and knowledge of baby carriers and slings to offer informed and impartial recommendations, plus personalised tips and tricks on how to use a suitable sling safely and comfortably.
And of course anyone attending a private session in Beckenham will benefit from all of the available Sling Library carriers to try too!
If you’re not able to come to Beckenham, then we are sometimes able to offer home visits, or can put you in touch with another babywearing consultant who is more local to you.
How do Private Consultations Work?
Before a Consultation: After discussing your needs in advance your consultant will plan a dedicated session so that you can try out the carriers and techniques that you need help with.
During a Private Consultation: Your consultant will be able to advise you on the best carriers to suit you and your family, teach you how to use a wide range of slings, give you tips and techniques for ensuring a safe and comfortable carry, and to troubleshoot any problems that you might be experiencing.
After a Consultation:
Using baby carriers is a skill that gets better with practice (both for you and for your baby); we can’t make you into an experienced expert in one session, but we aim to give you all the tools and information you need so that you can go home and practice your carrying skills confidently in your own time. All sessions are followed up with email and/or phone support if you need it, and we can send you links to online tutorials and information to support the work you’ve done in the session.
