NCT Southam and Villages Sling Library offers parents the opportunity to try slings and carriers by hiring them for a short period. Our knowledgable sling library volunteer can help talk to you about the different types of slings and what might suit your needs.

We are currently running our Sling Library online with a contactless collection/ delivery service to ensure your safety.

We are currently running our Sling Library online with a contactless collection/ delivery service to ensure your safety. You can browse our slings on our Facebook page in the album 'Our Slings' and our sling coordinator Anna is on hand to answer your questions and give you information on them if you are unsure which you want. She can help you find your perfect sling and make sure you and your baby are comfortable and safe.

We have a wide variety of slings that you can try out to help find the one that suits you and your family. To hire our slings we charge £5 for 2 weeks, £7.50 for 3 weeks and £10 for 4 weeks. Can’t decide between 2 slings? Hire a 2nd for half price.

Once decided, the booking forms and payment system will be emailed to you. Your sling will be prepared safely with our volunteers wearing gloves and face coverings, placed in a cleaned collection box and quarantined for 48 hours before collection in Southam. Delivery may be possible on request. We request parents use hand sanitiser before removing their sling. On return the slings will be quarantined before checked and washed ready for future bookings

You can find out more about the slings we have on our facebook page. Facebook Southamslinglibrary 

Our FAQs on the Facebook page will tell you all you need to know about slings, but if you are not on Facebook and would like more information contact Slinglibrary.southam@nct.org.uk
