Cloth and Carrier Help
Have questions about your carrier? Preparing for a new baby and want to try on a new carrier or two? Do you need help narrowing down your cloth diaper choices? Visit our individual store calendars to find a time that’s right for you. Please note the times that say “WITH Fittings” are the only scheduled times we can offer to fit your baby in a carrier on you.
No appointment is needed but we ask that you show up 30 minutes before the end of the scheduled time to begin a consult. Please understand that we need to limit our time with each client to about 20 minutes and we highly recommend that you attend one of our introduction workshops first, to best utilize your one on one time with our consultants.
Please note that if someone is already having a consult, you may need to wait a little while for our associates to help you. To make it easy, we have restrooms, changing areas, play areas, and comfy spots for feeding baby.
