Baby Carrier / Wrap Drop In Session – Bridge of Don 

Organiser: Close and Calm

Where: St. Columba’s Church, Braehead Way, Aberdeen

Date:  Friday 14th September 2018
Time:  09:30AM-10:45

Description: We’re delighted to be able to hold a Baby Carrier Drop In Session every month in Bridge of Don

Feel free to bring your stretchy wrap from the Scottish Baby Box as we’d love to give you a hand.

There will be trained baby carrying advice from Jess Hippey, owner of Close and Calm, and a large selection of carriers and wraps available for trying and for hiring. Should you wish to go on to buy a carrier after this, please inform Jess as discount codes are available for customers.

We will charge a £2 entry fee to cover room hire, insurance and professional fees. Children are always welcome.

We’re very lucky to also have a breastfeeding peer supporter present at most meetings.

We’re a friendly, welcoming bunch and look forward to meeting you. Our hope is to try and build an informative and supportive community so the more the merrier.

You’re also always welcome to bring your own carriers for help too.
