Bonding & Practical Parenting through Babywearing
Baw Baw Babywearing with Olivia's Place is now available through Babywearing Victoria Sling Meets where information and advice is offered on all aspects of babywearing for parents. Kirsten Finger, our Centre Manager, has been babywearing for over 6 years now using a variety of carriers and wraps over the course of parenting her 3 children. Kirsten is an endorsed BabyWearing Victoria Peer Educator and is able to spend time with you talking through your babywearing needs and options to help identify the right style of carrier for you.
Babywearing Information Sessions/Sling Meets
Olivia's Place will be offering Babywearing Victoria sling meets throughout 2016. Our next meet date is to be advised, and will be held at a venue in Warragul. Please bring along a gold coin donation to be passed onto Babywearing Victoria when you come to a meet.
Babywearing Lending Library
People hire carriers for a variety of reasons. They may wish to try some different options, or may wish to try a carrier they think they've decided on before committing to purchase. Many carriers and wraps are only available through online purchasing, making the ability to try before buying virtually impossible in the absence of a lending library, or having friends willing to loan you something from their 'stash'.
Olivia's Place is fully insured to provide hire of wraps and carriers to families in our community. We have a small lending library, that we will be growing over time. Carriers and wraps are available to hire for the very low price of $5 per week (to cover administration and cleaning costs, as well as the training provided to you in safety of use). There is also a $50 deposit taken at the time of the carrier/wrap hire which is fully refunded if the item is returned in its original condition at the agreed time (contact us if you'd like further information on the terms and conditions).
