Bradwell, Hope Valley S33 9JX

Held in the Teddy Bear Club, Bradwell, in the hall next to the Methodist Church. A selection of slings will be there for trying out and hiring on the day, with a consultant and peer supporter on hand.
Teddies is a baby and toddler group running in the same place from 9.30 till 11.30; entry during these times to get some help and enjoy their facilities is £1.50 per family.

Parking on the hill and the surrounding streets is free.
The 272 bus stops at the bottom of the hill.

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, Charlotte (and Rosie for support) 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.
