North East Sling Library

We offer sling hire, advice and support across the region from our base in Durham City.  Sessions are run by trained and insured babywearing consultants. It is £15 for 4 weeks hire. Appointments must be prebooked in advance. Sessions held on the 1st, 3rd and 5th Saturday of each month (not December). Additional sesssions may be offered during school holidays.

Our library offers peer-to-peer support to other parents, describing their 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 (starting from £20 for sling demo).
