Being a new parent is exciting, rewarding, blissful, exhausting and sometimes confusing. How do you properly and comfortably wear your child? Do you know if you’re getting the proper nutrition? How can you exercise safely while wearing a child in a carrier? With so many mixed messages coming from websites and manufacturers, it’s impossible to know which information is correct.
That’s where Growing Up Green in Missoula, MT, comes in. We’re one of nine programs in the United States providing Kangatraining classes for moms and babies in addition to our other educational opportunities for parents.
We currently offer indoor and outdoor educational experiences to get children and parents outdoors and active. We are in the planning stages for a small, part-time preschool program called the Growing Up Green Forest School. This will be an outdoor preschool program for children who are 4 and 5 years old in the city limits on Missoula's southside. Take a look at our calendar for our upcoming classes.
Growing Up Green will show you how to properly use a variety of carriers from our collection of wraps, ringslings and soft-structured carriers. Our two-hour Montana Mama Babywearing Consultation is held in the privacy of your home or a public location of your choice. I’ll explain all the details associated with carrying your baby and help you determine the appropriate size and type of carrier for you and your baby.
Know your baby is properly worn with help from Growing Up Green in Missoula.
You’ll find three different postnatal workout classes at Growing Up Green: Kangatraining, KangaOnWheel and KangaTrail, so you can attend all 3 or choose the one that fits you best. All you need is your doctor’s approval and the motivation to feel better and live a more active lifestyle.
