This hands-on workshop will guide you through how to wear your baby securely, why babywearing is good for you and baby, and introduce you to many carrier options. You will have the opportunity to see and feel all the carriers that Diaper Lab stocks as well as purchase a carrier to use with your baby.

This workshop is ideal for expectant parents/caretakers; families with newborns less than four months of age; and/or families with babes-in-arms of any age and no babywearing experience. If you have a babe-in-arms four months of age or older by the date of the workshop, please register for our Carrier Clinic instead.

So come check out our great selection of baby carriers from Moby, Baby Hawk, Sakura Bloom, Boba, Beco, Onya, Tula, and many others, and learn what will work best for you and your baby. We look forward to seeing you, and don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions!

About The Instructors

Crystal RS Gemma 5mo

Crystal is about to demonstrate use of a ring sling with her five month old!

Crystal Woller

Crystal was first introduced to babywearing when her first child was born in early 2011. A bit overwhelmed, she went to her first Boston Babywearers meeting for guidance. Her love of babywearing drove her to become a leader with Babywearing International of Greater Boston and help caregivers learn about babywearing.


Jen Patashnick

Before Jen's first child even was born, she was excited to wear him, and had collected several carriers. However, it wasn't until she learned of Asian style carriers that her babywearing adventure really began. She has now had the pleasure of wearing both her children and others’ for extended periods in every style of carrier and enjoys helping novice babywearers realize how wonderful and life-changing a great carrier can be!
