We are a non-profit community group created by volunteer parents for parents & carers. We are here to help families and carers carry babies and children safely and confidently in a comfortable way using slings and carriers.

We offer trained and experienced advice on all aspects of babywearing including a range of slings and carriers for hire to fit from newborn babies to preschoolers, at library sessions we can fit and rent out available slings, help with your own slings, teaching new skills and practising to perfect current skills.


We also offer a range of services to make wearing more accessible to all, including a free newborn stretchy scheme, group workshops and one to one sessions. We run on a first-come-first-served basis. We endeavour to see everyone that arrives but please do remember we are a volunteer service, we try our best to see everyone. Please check in returning hires as soon as you arrive to allow other families to try out.
