Alisa is an approved babywearing consultant by the Babywearing School Australia.
babyshop has a large range of soft structured carriers, stretch and woven wraps, mei-tais and ring slings which you can ‘test drive’ in store. Our weighted dolls allow you to try each carrier and ensure minimal disruption to your child as you narrow down your choices, before trying your own baby for comfort and adjustment.
