    Question Would you use a Babywearing Consultant?

    Hi everyone!

    I'm looking at becoming a babywearing consultant and would like some feedback.
    Would you use a babywearing consultant and if so would you prefer a one on one consult or as a group? For those who has been previously did you enjoy it and if not how could it be improved? What price range did you pay? Did you think that was reasonable?

    I appreciate all your feedback

    Honestly, I wouldn't. With the amount of babywearing local groups out there, I find there is always someone to help, and a lot of actual vendors around too.

    Maybe if you came to my home with a wide range of products that I could try on before I bought, showed me how to put them on with my baby.

    I wouldn't expect to pay you for the service but I would purchase a product from you that i would expect you have a mark up on.

    Same here. I would have loved someone coming to me with a wide range of products so that I can try at home with bub!

    I think that's what meets are for - generally tend to be experienced mamas there ready to take you through different carries. And there are soooo many utube vids - doesn't take long to get the hang of what you need to do (sorry!)

    Same here. I have bought 3 different carriers because I didn't like the first 2 and would have loved someone to come and show me different types. I would have saved a bit of money.
    Might be a good idea for mothers groups.

    Thanks heaps for your feedback

    So would you ladies prefer to have someone come over to your house and have an info session and show the different carriers that can be used which can be tried on with a facility to be able to purchase afterwards, a bit like a Tupperware or intimo party which you could have as an individual or as a group. Would this be more appealing?

    I've used babywearing consultants twice - neither charged. The first came around when DS was a few weeks old and showed me all the different carriers. I ended up buying a Manduca from another consultant but before purchase she gave DH and I a quick demo at her house so DH could see it. This consultant also does free after purchase support.
