Learn to Wear Your Baby! Traditionally babywearing is learned from your community long before you become a parent, but this ancient know-how can be difficult to access for the modern Western parent.  Learn to tie a wrap several ways, try out various styles of cloth carriers (with no pressure to buy), and get help troubleshooting carriers you already own.  Your home or mine, always free.  Free wrap carriers (and occasionally other styles) are often available, thanks to free-will donations.
