Sling library

 

ring sling
 

 Carrying your baby in a sling can be a wonderful experience for both you and your baby.  It increases feelings of wellbeing, reduces post natal depression, helps you to cope if you do have post natal depression, and babies cry around 56% LESS if you carry them for 3 hours or more per day!

There are many sling choices on the market, some modelled on traditional carriers from around the world and some new designs so it can be a bit off-putting trying to decide which one will suit your family and learning how to use it.

Some of our local branch members have been using slings for years and we want to share their knowledge and the joy and benefits of baby wearing with you.

Our Sling Library holds a range of slings, there is something for everyone: this is an excellent way to have a look at all the options available or to try before you buy. 

We hire out slings for just £7 per month and have a variety to offer. (Please email for more information on this) We can also teach you how to use the sling or a sling you may have purchased for yourself. In addition to this we are happy to help you find a sling second hand and help you choose a sling which is suitable for your family and situation.

Our events are held the second Wednesday of every month from 10am-1pm at The Quaker Meeting House (6 The Friars, CT1 2AS) and the fourth Wednesday of the month from 7p,-9pm Espressions Art’s Café (29-30 Palace St, CT1 2DZ). These are advertised on our sling library Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/NCTCanterburyslings

We also appear at Riverside Breastfeeding Group at Riverside Children’s Centre on the last Tuesday of each month, Riverside breastfeeding group starts at 11:00 for bumps and under 3 months and 11:30 for everyone else.
