The Library

Which sling?


A sling is like a pair of jeans- one sling does not suit all!  If you are unsure which baby carrier would work best for you, we will work with you to choose the most appropriate carrier for your needs for you to hire. This can be done at a one-to-one consultation with our fully qualified Baby-Carrying Consultant (either online or in person) or at one of  the Sling Library sessions. If there are a group of you wanting to find out about carrying your baby or child it's also possible to book a group workshop. Please get in touch with us so that we meet your needs as best as possible.

What is the library like?


As of the end of August 2018, we now work from the Big Red Bus Club. Inside the room, you will be greeted by one of our team of volunteers who will ask you to sign in and ask what your needs are. We have the different types of sling set out on the tables. There are seats set up around the room where you can sit and feed your child. There are a variety of drinks and snacks to buy onsite and we are really lucky to have weekly cakes provided by Lulu cupcakes . Sarah S, Sarah L or Tia will work with you as to which sling would be best for your needs. We can also offer support with slings that you have been given, to make them more comfortable or fit better- this is included in the lifetime membership fee.

We will ask you to become a lifetime member with fortnightly fees or chose to leave a deposit with fortnightly fees.  

The hire lasts for two weeks and can be renewed for a further two weeks via either our email or our Facebook group. After this time, we need to see the sling to check it for our insurance. We can then hire the sling for a further month. If you are then interested in buying a particular carrier, we can help you to find the best deals via our links with different sling companies.  This will entitle you to a discount of around 5-10% depending on the carrier.

Sling Fees

If the sling library is quiet, we may be able to offer basic tweaks and support to carriers and wraps that you already own. You do not have to be a member but we do ask for a £5 donation to the library for help given. All money goes to running the library and towards buying new slings.
