4th Trimester Summer Social drop in @ The Snug | England | United Kingdom

This is the 4th Trimester drop in social on Monday mornings when the 4th Trimester 6 week parenting cycle is not running. This is a social sling library session mainly for bumps and babies, though anyone is welcome.

It runs at the Snug, 10.30-12.30.

The sling library gives you a chance to try things before you buy, as a sling that isn’t comfortable for you, or one that your baby does not like, could be an expensive experiment! Some parents find a carrier they love straight away, some may try several different types before settling on one that feels the best. Every parent and child combination is unique and what worked well for your friend, or what you have been advised to try on the internet, may not be the best-fitting choice in real life.

No appointment is needed, but if it is busy, there are chairs and toys available while you wait, Rosie and the trained team will see everyone in turn and sometimes help several families with similar needs together. If you find busy group sessions hard, please consider booking a mini consult or a 1-2-1 consultation. If you are pregnant or your baby is under 6 weeks we also offer evening classes.

At the Sling Surgery we know that babies do not feed at predictable times. If your baby wants feeding while you are visiting, you’re welcome to make yourself comfortable wherever you like to meet your baby’s needs. The volunteers will be happy to help you find somewhere to sit or provide you with hot water to warm bottles.

More support can be found in the Virtual Sling Surgery.
