Sling Library Hire

Library sessions are a good opportunity to get advice and support with your current carrier, or just to browse and try a few out. I have an extensive collection and a lot of experience.

If you wish to take a sling home with you, you are most welcome to do so.

Library slings can be hired from the library drop-ins, from the consultations and workshops, or from my doorstep by arrangement – you can contact me through the form on this page or via my facebook page. I will ensure you know how to use your hired sling safely before you take it away! Hire fees are £5 for the first week (per sling) and £2.50 for each week after that.

Library sessions

The Library sessions are below – they are staffed by a team of trained volunteers working alongside me. No appointments needed, just turn up!

Please note, Sling Library drop in can be busy. It can be fun, and you can learn a lot by watching other people be fitted, or seeing other babies being carried. There may be a wait, but do make yourselves comfortable and make friends with your fellow visitors! If you feel that a group space is not for you, are pressed for time, one to one sessions are available. CLICK ON THE LINKS FOR MORE INFORMATION

I don’t require deposits for the hire of carriers, to keep them accessible to many,  but because of this I do ask that you agree to replace the full cost of the carrier should anything untowards happen.

Lost or Damaged Carriers

  • As part of this agreement, the full replacement of any lost or damaged carriers, accessories or instructions will be borne by the borrower.

Payment Methods

  • Loan costs are payable by cash, gifted Paypal payment or bank transfer.
