Friday Sling Library drop-in @ The Snug | England | United Kingdom

A fortnightly Friday Sling Library drop in held in at the Snug, our City Centre premises (71 Leadmill Road, S1 4SE), from 10:30 – 12:30.

Come and browse our large sling library and get some help/advice from a team of trained peer supporters and Kiri (the consultant) in a friendly, welcoming atmosphere, and hire one to take home to try out. The range of slings from the Sling Spot is available to browse and purchase.

Toddlers welcome, there are plenty of toys for them.

There is easy access from the Sheffield Interchange via tram and bus, as well as from the train station, and parking is available on the roads nearby and in the Q Park, also behind the Sheffield Radio station.

What happens at a Sling Library drop-in?

A 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, Kiri and the peer supporter team will see everyone in turn and sometimes help several families with similar needs together. Slings can be taken away on hire to use at home for a period of time.
