Place to try out toddler carriers?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi Mamas,

I'd like to finding something for wearing/carrying my toddler. A wise mama on the Babywearing forum (thank you!) suggested that there might be a baby wearers group in my area that may be able to help you try on different types of carriers. Does anyone know of such a group or another place in the Metrowest Boston area that I could try out some carriers?

Thanks in advance!

If you're willing to travel out towards Worcester, Mothers & Co. will help you fit a carrier. They do babywearing workshops where you can bring your own carrier (or see what other mamas have) or when you go to buy a carrier from them, they will take the time to fit you with one. I know one of the sales clerks (I think her name is Kate?) baby wears her almost 2 year old while she works in a Becco and is very knowledgable about wearing older babies. Here's their website:

Good luck with your search!

Magic Beans toy store. They sell all sorts of carriers and you can try them on (they will help you).

The Boston Babywearers meets monthly and they have a lending library of carriers. They are meeting in Lexington and Somerville now, I believe. There is also a very active yahoo group that they run. I used to go when I lived in Quincy and the meetings were in Cambridge/Boston(-;

I second Moco. It's just a few minutes from 495.

Hi Mamas,

I wanted to follow up and let you know that I went to Mothers and Company several weeks ago and they were fantastic. I was so impressed at how helpful the women were and also how non-judgmental. We spent a long time trying on carriers and were able to get all of our questions answered. We ended up choosing a Beco and have been loving it!

We were so pleased with Mothers and Company that, even though it's a 50 minute drive for us, we've already been back out there again when we needed a few other things.

Thanks again!

Hi, new here! Isis Maternity has a bunch of carriers to try too, but I didn't find their staff to be overly friendly or knowledgable. I have joined the Boston BW group, but haven't made it to a meeting yet. But Jan from Sleeping Baby Productions (RS company) is going to be at the next meet Feb 24th (yes in Somerville) to give a sewing demo about DIY slings!
