If this is your first class, please arrive early to fill out your health questionnaire and make any necessary adjustments to the carrier. If you do not have an ergonomic carrier, I have extras that can be borrowed for class.
Please read the section at the bottom of this page to be sure you're prepared for your first class.
What type of baby carriers are suitable for Kangatraining class?
•Carriers must support a baby in their natural spread squat position with the legs supported from the base of one knee to the base of the other. Proper head and neck support is essential. No forward facing carriers allowed. All carriers need to provide mom with support for both of her shoulders and across her waist.
•For smaller babies who can not yet sit up, they need extra support for their rounded backs. Wraps (woven or cotton~for babies under 3 months) and SSC’s with an infant adjustment or an infant insert (ideally only the infant insert pillow due to risk of overheating.)
•Once a baby can sit up, a SSC, woven wrap, or mei tai works well. Heavier babies who can sit unsupported can be worn on mom’s back.
You are welcome to bring your carrier so I can assess its suitability for the class. I will also assist you in getting the best fit and comfort for you and your baby. There will be demo carriers available at each class to borrow if necessary.
What info should I know before my first class?
~Approval from your OBGYN is required prior to attending your first class.
~Arrive 15 mins early if you haven't filled out your Health Questionnaire or if you want help adjusting your carrier.
~Wear comfortable exercise clothes, socks and shoes (or barefoot.)
~Bring extra onesie for baby, diapers/wipes, yoga mat (we have some if you don't want to bring your own), and a water bottle!
~We offer training adjustments/ modifications for the various forms of pain or injuries common after a birth with complications or from everyday life after pregnancy, so be sure to inform trainer of concerns on your health questionnaire.
~Breastfeeding mothers experiencing mastitis are not allowed to participate in Kangatraining. Breastfeed before the session to relieve pressure and weight.
~There is really no age limit for babies so long as every mother participating can wear their baby safely and comfortably. For restless older babies, or moms who have a baby and a toddler, the kids are welcome to play on the floor in the room.
LET'S KANGA!! We hope to see you and your kiddo soon!
