There are many different types of slings or carriers on the market these days it can be quite confusing, some are simple wraps and some have clips and buckles. Rather than buying one and it not quite working resigned to the back of the cupboard why not borrow one, two or more from us to see which works best for you and your child.
From newborn to toddler to preschooler - we have a selection or slings or carriers as they are known as part of our branch sling library to loan out so you can try a few different types at low cost before spending money on buying your own at just £5 for 2 week hire.
We are also able to hire out stretchy newborn slings (the caboos & stretchy wraps) for a 4 month hire period for £20, saving you buying one as often stretches are used up to around 4-5mths. Try it for 2wks for £5 or a month for £10 then extend the hire for additional 3 months for £10
To hire come along to our sling meet held alongside "Milk" our feeding support group held 2nd and 4th tues each month 1-2.30pm at St Pauls Church, Dorking all welcome. If you have any specific slings you wish to try then do email as we only take a selection of the library slings along or they maybe hired out already.
