With her expertise and passion for babywearing, Amber can guide you through the process of selecting a carrier that is comfortable, supportive, and safe for both you and your baby.

New Carrier Consultation
At The Infant Boutique, we understand that purchasing a baby carrier can be overwhelming, and we want to help take the stress out of the process. We offer a personalised fitting service to help you find the carrier that is perfect for you and your family.
We have demonstration models in store for you to try on, and our trained Babywearing Consultant, Amber, will correctly fit each carrier to you and show you how to use it safely and effectively. We’re committed to ensuring that you feel comfortable and confident in your babywearing abilities, so you can make the right choice for you and your little one.
In addition, we provide ongoing support, care, and refits at no charge for the life of your carrier. We want to ensure that your carrier remains comfortable and safe as your baby grows, and we’re here to help you every step of the way.
Existing Carrier Consultation
If you already own a baby carrier but are unsure if you’re using it correctly, or if it doesn’t feel comfortable when you wear it, don’t worry! The Infant Boutique offers carrier consultations to help you get the most out of your carrier.
For a fee of $50, we will provide you with a comprehensive consultation, ensuring that you’re using your carrier safely and effectively. This fee is redeemable on any purchase made in store or can be transferred to a store credit, which is valid for 12 months.
Once you’ve had a carrier consultation with us, you’ll receive the same ongoing support, care, and refits at no charge, just as if you had purchased the carrier from us. We’re committed to helping you and your little one stay comfortable and safe while babywearing.
To ensure a personalised and comfortable experience, we require all baby carrier fittings and consultations to be booked in advance. You can easily schedule an appointment by clicking the ‘BOOK NOW’ button on our website, or by calling us during our opening hours at 8362 6087.
Please keep in mind that a fitting or consultation can take anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes, especially if you are purchasing a new carrier. We have a wide range of carriers available in store, and if you choose to try them all on, it may take some time. For the best experience, we recommend scheduling the appointment when your baby is recently fed and changed, and is content or sleepy. However, we understand that unexpected events can occur, and we have space for you to feed and change your baby if needed.
If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. We are always happy to help!
I recently visited Amber at The Infant Boutique to purchase a baby carrier after being recommended by a friend.
Not many places offer baby carrier fittings so this was a life and time saver so I didn’t have to buy a brand online and worry about it not being safe or suitable for my little one. Booking the appointment online was easy and the fitting even easier.
Amber is so bubbly, friendly and approachable. I found the perfect carrier for my bubs and even hubby loves it too!
Will definitely be recommending The Infant Boutique to all my friends and family with babies on the horizon.
With an upcoming overseas trip, we decided to get our baby carrier properly fitted by Amber.
This was a game-changer for us! It made hiking through Europe and Asia with our baby a breeze and made naps on the go easy. We frequently use it here too.
Amber’s knowledge has been immeasurable in teaching us about the different components of the carrier, different ways to wear it and how to wear it safely.
Would highly recommend!

We have recommended her to all our friends! 5 stars for sure!
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)
Do I need to make an appointment?
Absolutely! At The Infant Boutique, we offer personalised baby carrier fittings and consultations by appointment only to ensure that we can provide you with our full attention and give you the best experience possible. This allows us to prepare in advance for your visit, making sure that we have the necessary equipment and carriers available for you to try on.
Do I need to bring my baby?
Ideally yes. We highly recommend bringing your baby to the appointment as it allows us to assess the carrier’s fit and comfort level for both you and your baby. While we do have a demo doll that can simulate the weight of a baby, it’s not an exact representation of how your baby will feel in the carrier. Bringing your baby also gives you the opportunity to see how they respond to being in the carrier and whether they feel comfortable and secure. We understand that sometimes it may not be possible to bring your baby to the appointment, in which case we will do our best to assist you in finding the right carrier based on your needs and preferences.
Can I have a fitting while pregnant?
Yes & No. It is best to wait until your baby has arrived to try on structured carriers such as baby carriers with waistbands as your baby bump can get in the way and won’t give you a true indication of fit. However, you can still try on stretchy wraps and ring slings with a baby bump as they tend to work better. Keep in mind that your body will continue to change postpartum, so it may be necessary to revisit the fit of your carrier after birth. In general, it is recommended to wait until your baby has arrived to get a more accurate fit for any type of baby carrier.
I don’t want to have a carrier fitting, can I try the carriers on by myself?
While we understand that you may want to try on carriers before making a purchase, for safety and liability reasons, we cannot allow customers to try on carriers without supervision. Our trained Babywearing Consultant will be available to assist you in trying on and fitting the carriers properly to ensure your comfort and safety. We highly recommend booking a fitting appointment to make the most out of your visit to our store and to ensure that you find the right carrier for you and your baby.
