Sling Library

We are a Not For Profit organisation providing a service to the public. We understand and see the benefits first hand for both parents and babies/toddlers of using a carrier. Our vision is to be able to offer any parent who wishes to use a carrier or sling the chance to do so safely and comfortably making it possible for them to carry as long as they wish to without the barriers.  We have a range of slings and carriers to try and hire plus the ability to support in fitting correctly.

We offer

* FREE sling/carrier fitting service - supporting parents to wear their baies in slings safely and as comfortably as possible whether that's their own sling/carrier they bring along with them or one of ours to try.

* FREE stretchy sling hire for all new parents - including support to learn how to wear it and how to use it safely with their new babies.

* LOW COST sling/carrier hire - if parents find a carrier they like and want to try before they buy then they can hire one on the day of their fitting.
