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.
Early Years Settings – as an early years teacher I understand the challenges of being and EYFS practitioner and have developed a bespoke training programme for nurseries & childminders. You can see us in the press here
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.
