Welcome to Babywearing South West! Our aim is to offer support and guidance to parents and carers to carry their babies and toddlers in a safe way that best suits them. We provide this support in a range of ways to suit you and your needs; drop in sessions, one-to-one consultations, small group consultations and workshops. We are able to offer your support with your own carrier, sling or wrap, alternatively you are able to try a range of options from our own stock.
Babywearing South West was set up by myself, Kizzy, to share my passion for babywearing and to support families to carry with confidence. I started babywearing in 2015. I wore my son from 5 hours old and it has become one of the most beneficial parenting tools I have used. I volunteered for a large sling library for 2 years, giving me a great opportunity to try out and learn about a big range of slings, carriers and wraps.
I completed my ‘Babywearing Peer Support‘ training and went on to qualify as a ‘Babywearing Consultant‘ with the School of Babywearing. In 2019 I completed another consultancy course this time with Slingababy. I attend regular training course too so at ensure my knowledge continues to grow.
