Help, information & advice for all your baby & child carrying needs
Have a sling already but are struggling to get it to feel right?
Want a sling but don't have a clue where to start with all the options?
Not sure if a sling is for you but up for having a go?
This was us at the start of our parenting journey too. And that's exactly why we started our sling library. Whether you just want help to get your sling working better for you, or you want some advice on how to choose one that will work for your needs, or just fancy giving it a go for a holiday or event, we can help. From fitting, low cost rentals so you can try before you buy, to sales, for all your baby and child carrying needs we've got your back.
Have a look at our How it works page and find your nearest session in Kirklees or Calderdale. We'll have you carrying comfortably and stylishly in no time.
Slinglibrary.com has been running in West Yorkshire since 2009. Started by parents for parents we have a vast collection of baby & toddler slings that have been chosen because they hold the baby in the anatomically correct carrying position to keep you and your child comfortable and safe. Slings & carriers are loaned out to parents and carers on a fortnightly or four weekly basis to help you find the right sling.
We run sling library sessions five days a week in Mirfield, Birstall, Halifax, Slaithwaite, Huddersfield and Holmfirth where you can come for advice, try on or even get help with the fitting of your own sling. Renting from the sling library is a great way to try out a few different brands or types of sling before deciding whether or not you want to buy. Hiring is also fantastic if you need a sling for a short period, such as a holiday or special event. If you hire a sling from the library and then buy from us, we will deduct the cost of your first hire from the purchase price of the sling. We also offer free UK shipping on all of the products in our online shop if you live further afield. We do not offer a postal hire service at this time.
Slinglibrary.com is a not for profit, community interest company, all money raised goes back into the library to help replace and grow our range of rental slings to ensure the library has great availability of the most popular styles and brands.
It is run by qualified, insured baby carrying consultants and local sling-using parent volunteers who will help you with any questions you may have.
The objectives of the library are:
to promote baby carrying safety
to make safe baby carrying accessible to all
to promote the benefits of carrying your baby close
