Eco Store | Sling & Cloth Nappy Library | Parent Hub

We’re open!

Your parent hub – The PoD (Parents of Derby) is open! We are so very excited to bring to you, an Eco Store retailing ethical parent and baby related products, carefully sourced by us, and a parent hub for workshops, classes and more. You can call in Monday – Saturday to visit the Derby Sling Library & Cloth Nappy Library, for consultations, demonstrations and other parent support.

We bring together many services from across the city, to one central location, making it easier for you to access support. We fund this entirely from the Eco Store, reinvesting profits to support you and your family. Shopping with us, supports your community.

Thank you so much for your support!

What is The PoD?

It is a city centre location for all services to run from for The Parents of Derby (PoD), regardless of funding status. In a time of cuts, we shouldn’t suffer a lack of support. Cariad Babi funds this space using profits from our Eco store.

We are based on Castleward Boulevard, right outside the Intu Centre. Just follow the underpass (next to Calm Yoga wink). You can walk to us easily, or park outside for less than Intu Parking. For SatNav, follow DE1 2LH.

Sling Library

No single sling fits two different people the same way. Rather than spend money on a sling that may not be right for you, why not try one first?
