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 with existing slings or carriers.

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.

Costs and Times

Prices for private Consultations vary according to duration, Consultant experience and whether you choose us to visit you in your home.

A Mini Consult costs £15 for 30 minutes.  This option is suitable for 1 family getting help with an existing carrier, learning to use one type of carrier, or getting a quick recommendation for a carrier.

A Full Consultation costs from £35 depending on consultant experience and lasts up to 90 minutes.  This option is suitable for individuals and for small groups.  It gives plenty of time to try a range of different slings and carriers, or to cover multiple carrying poisionts or questions.  Please book a Full Consultation if you need help with special carrying or medical needs.

    I am looking for a sling I can use for my 3week old who is quite small. 2.7kg.
    She doesn’t like to sleep in her basket and I find the only thing that makes he’s sleep restfully is on me/ skin to skin. I would Like a comfortably sling suited to this age that will allow me to get on with tasks in the house and also spend more hands on time with my son who is almost 3.

    I tried a baby carrier previously with my son (from mama’s and pappa’s) but found it faffy and uncomfortable on my back and got very little wear out of it. I have never used a sling before and would appreciate some advice and guidance on a suitable one.

    Thank you
