Interested in babywearing but not sure where to start? Come along to our monthly Sling Library and have a look at our wide range of slings and baby carriers.
We are run by volunteers who promote the benefits of babywearing for parent and child, and offer parent to parent support to anyone interested in trying out a sling. The library allows easy access to a variety of slings and carriers; we provide demonstrations on how to use our slings as well as information on general sling safety, with the option to hire from us for a small fee. All of the money made goes to the NCT charity.
We hire out a wide range of baby carriers including standard and toddler Tula’s, Tula Free-to-Grow, Tula Explore, Connecta, Ergo omni 360, Ergo adapt, Integra, Beco gemini, Lillebaby, caboo’s and stretchy wraps, woven wraps etc We charge £10 per month for hire of slings and ask for a cheque deposit (£50/£100 depending on what is hired). The cheque will be returned uncashed when the sling is returned undamaged at the end of the hire period. Alternatively we can verify your address if you bring photo ID which includes proof of address, such as a driving licence.
We meet on the 1st Saturday of each month (no meet up in December) 2-3.30pm at The Church of the Good Shepherd, Windmill Lane, Castlecroft, WV3 8HJ but please check our Facebook page as sometimes this has to change to do venue availability
Cloth Nappy Library
We have a wide range of cloth nappies that you can hire such as Little Lamb, BumGenius, Wonderoos, Swaddlebees etc. We have All in ones (AIO), birth to potty (BTP) and two piece (TP) for just £10 a month, and a cheque deposit of £30 is required. We also have Cheeky Wipes for hire for an additional £5 per month.
