Come along for all things sling related, Plus a handsfree brew and cake if you fancy 😉

Who are we?
We are a non-profit community group created by parents for parents & carers. We are here to help families and carers carry babies and children safely and confidently in a comfortable way using slings and carriers.

We offer trained and experienced advice on all aspects of babywearing including a range of slings and carriers for hire to fit from newborn babies to preschoolers, at library sessions we can fit and rent out available slings, help with your own slings, teaching new skills and practising to perfect current skills.

We also offer a range of services to make wearing more accessible to all, including a free newborn stretchy scheme, group workshops and one to one sessions.

What about the cost?
Entry will be £3 per family, with this entrance fee you are welcome to make full use of the available kitchen facilities at Newtons, including unlimited hot and cold beverages, Snacks and the best part CAKE !!!

Also for a limited time Newtons are hosting a pop-up Salford Roasters Coffee shop in the front room, I can personally testify they make ethically sourced speciality coffee and all vegan cakes that are AMAZING!

Please ask reception for directions to where we are holding the Sling & Meet session
Please check in returning hires as soon as you arrive to allow other families to try out.
A little of what we offer and how we run the meets.
Sling meets can get very busy, We aim offer 10 – 20 minutes with each family to run through one or two carriers of your choice, we will demo to you, then help you get a good comfortable fit. We run on a first come first served basis. We endeavour to see everyone that arrives but please do remember we are a volunteer service. We do try our best to see everyone.
If you require more time one to one consults are available. Consultations are a paid service. Please note that we are unable to demonstrate back carries in session for safety reasons but one to one sessions are available with Samantha. Please message the Facebook page to organise.
