Sling Meets & Pop Ups
Wear My Baby Sling Meets are monthly drop-in socials for anyone interested in baby carrying. All Meets offer a free sling fitting and troubleshooting service, with most featuring Wear My Baby Pop Up Shops and/or sling hire services, in partnership with local Sling Libraries. Meets can get very busy, so only limited one-to-one help from our trained, insured and highly experienced Babywearing Consultants is available (often a max of 10 mins per family at peak times).
- Are looking for your first sling or carrier
- Have any health considerations
- Need help getting your baby/toddler on your back
- Or want to learn how to use woven wraps
Then you are very welcome to join us; but we also advise that you book in for a Consultation or Workshop with one of our Consultants, where we can offer your family more focused guidance and teaching, so you can carry your baby safely and comfortably.
