Wear My Baby Boutique
London's Baby Carrier Shop, Hire & Advice Service
58 Upper Tooting Road, London, SW17 7PB
The Wear My Baby Boutique is London's specialist baby carrier shop, hire service and advice service.
Safety & comfort come first. Learning how to carry your baby safely & comfortably is just as important as which sling or carrier you buy. That's why we are more than just a shop. Our qualified, experienced team offers in-store consultations and workshops. Please book in advance (below) to avoid disappointment.
Want to try before you buy? You can hire slings and carriers at our Boutique, so you can be confident you are buying the right ones.
Evening Workshops for Expectant Parents and Healthcare Professionals
Our after-hours Essentials Workshops are ideal for expectant parents and healthcare, antenatal and postnatal professionals - and anyone who'd like a general introduction to babywearing.
These evening workshops are led by qualified midwife and Senior Wear My Baby Consultant, Rebecca Ford.
We'll explore the benefits of baby carrying and the principles of safety, comfort and positioning. Workshops include plenty of hands-on time for you to try out a wide range of baby carriers, wraps and slings. Our demonstration dolls are on hand to practice with - though real babies are welcome, too!
At the end of the workshop, you will have the chance to hire or buy slings and carriers from us.
Cost: £20 per person, £30 for a couple, plus 5% discount on all purchases.
Other workshops and masterclasses will restart later this year.
Expert Babywearing Consultations
When you visit our London Boutique, our staff will be delighted to you tell you all about our carriers. But how a sling is fitted is just as important as which one you use. If you want one-to-one expert advice and to learn how to use carriers safely and comfortably, please book in for a Wear My Baby Consultation.
Our highly experienced, trained consultants can:
- Assess which slings/carriers may suit you based on a variety of factors, including your body shape and your baby's developmental stage, and teach you how to use them
- Teach you the principles of babywearing safety and positioning
- Teach you how to use wraps and tie-on baby carriers, using beginners or more advanced techniques
- Teach you how to carry babies and toddlers on your back, or to carry two babies at one
- Help you get the most out of your own sling/carrier
You can book a consultation in store from Tuesday to Saturday, at a time that suits you. We do offer walk-in consultations, but we recommend booking to avoid disappointment.
Standard Consultation is 1 hour / £30
Mini Consultation is 30mins / £15 (ideal for help with your own carrier/ to briefly try 1-2 specific carriers)

A fitting and troubleshooting service to help you get your current carrier fitting safely and comfortably; or to briefly try on 1 - 2 specific carriers
Sling Hire Service
Want to try before you buy?
You can hire our slings, starting from just £10 for 1 week. Some slings are available to hire for up to 4 weeks, subject to availability.
Please note you will need a debit or credit card to use this service, as we will need to either pre-authorise your card in case of non-return or damage to the carrier.

Donate your Pre-loved Baby Carriers
Wear My Baby works with Little Village, a 100% volunteer run charity that collects good quality donations of clothes, toys, books and equipment for babies and children up to the age of 5, and gets it out to families in the area who need it. These items are gifts, rather than hand-outs. Baby carriers are always in very high demand.
If you'd like to help us support local families, please drop off your pre-loved, good condition carriers to the Wear My Baby Boutique and you'll get a 5% discount on your next purchase from us as a thank you.
