If you have additional needs or wish to attend with another family with similar requirements please consider mentioning this so that we can book back to back appointments where needed.                               

Limitations of the current format: We are able to demonstrate back carrying and parents may try this out with a weighted doll, but we are currently unable to teach back carrying with your own child in a library session. Slings will be pre-quarantined which may limit the availability of some models.
