Stocksbridge Sling Meet and Library @ The Hub | Stocksbridge | England | United Kingdom

A monthly sling meet with a sling library drop in session in Stocksbridge, friendly and welcoming. Held at The Hub, 512 Manchester Rd, Stocksbridge, Sheffield S36 2DU

Advice and support available to all from trained peer supporters (this is a branch of the Sheffield Sling Surgery and Library)
Come and try the library slings that are in stock – and maybe take one home on hire. Please note that library drop in can be busy; we will see everyone, and may group people together with similar needs. There are toys and often a cake!

Do come early; it is quieter at the start and busiest in the last half hour!

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, 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.
