Where Can You Borrow A Sling:

  • Pop along to one of our scheduled library sessions, most of which are free to attend (some are in soft plays with discounted entry) where we can show you a couple of slings and you can try one out.
  • Book a one to one consultation in our office via the book now button where you’ll get at least an hour of one on one time with a qualified sling educator, there’s usually time to show you several slings, try a few on and get you confident with one or two depending on your starting point, you can then take one home for two weeks at no extra charge.
  • Book a one to one in your home by emailing us using the contact form The format is the same as a one to one in our office but costs a little more, there may be a few less slings and may take a little longer to arrange.
  • Book an out of hours hire by emailing us using the contact form – you can borrow a sling outside of scheduled library sessions from our office in Broadacre House, Market st, Newcastle, NE1 6HQ for £12 for 4 weeks if you are confident using it without support. If you need a little help fitting it you can also book a sling fit for a small extra charge.
