North East Sling Library

We help the north east to carry babies big and small, offering drop in sessions and one-to-one babywearing consultations across the region.

There are seven sessions per month, delivered by trained babywearing consultants. It is £10 for 4 weeks hire.

Our library offers free, peer-to-peer support to other parents, describing own experiences of babywearing, demonstrations of a wide range of baby carriers, and provides as much information about babywearing as possible.

Babywearing consultations are available on a one-to-one basis. (start from £20)

We hold various meetings across the north east. Locations and times can be found on our website.
