Slings & Nappies | Car Seats | Workshops
Tailored support from novice to advanced wearers
Introduction to Babywearing
Not sure where to start with babywearing? Our trained consultant will guide you through the techniques and safety of using slings. We can work with any additional needs you or your child may have and we aim to leave you feeling confident and cared for.
Own sling consultation
Already have a sling? This 1 hour consultation will offer you the skills to safely use a sling of your own. This can include exploring the other ways to use the sling, such as a back carry, feeding carries, and other positions where suitable.
Whether you have seen us before, or self taught at home, you can visit us to troubleshoot your sling. Perhaps your child is older now and something doesn’t feel right anymore, or you just aren’t sure how to adjust your sling. We can help.
From novice wrapping to fancy finishes, we run a variety of sling workshops with all types of slings. Click ‘Book’ to see what’s on!
