Sling Libraries & Consultants

Learn how to find hands on help and support in your community for using a baby sling.

What is a Sling Library?

At a sling library, you can hire a baby wrap, ring sling or carrier for a small fee so you can try it out for a few weeks.

Often these are run by a trained Carrying Consultant or they may also be hosted by enthusiastic babywearers who want to share the love!

Either way they are a great opportunity to see what's out there and receive help and advice. Some offer an online hiring service.

Often they are also a place to go for a community meet up where you can chat to like-minded parents.

What is a Carrying Consultant

A Carrying Consultant (also known as a Sling or Babywearing Consultant) is someone who has received professional training to provide one to one advice and support centred around your babywearing needs. 

They may also host group classes or peer-to-peer training and many also offer online sessions.

Consultants can advise you on which type of sling might be work well for you, give you an opportunity to try out a range of slings, and help you with any carries or particular issues you may have.

They can help you learn how to carry twins or your baby and toddler and you can come back for multiple sessions to build your skills or for when you need fresh advice as your family grows.
