I am a busy mum of 2, aged 3 & 1. I have a husband, a home, a cat and a nursing career – as well as a sling library and selling eco friendly cleaning items. The only way I fit this all in is by using my slings.
When I was pregnant with my first I heard about slings, so I researched and bought one. I didn’t do that bad a job, in fact, I still fit people to my first sling! However my technique was all wrong, I didn’t feel confident with the sling, even pegging the washing out was difficult in it. So I found the sling library. From there I was taught how to wear it correctly, and then progressed through different slings until I accidentally bought a sling library…..ok it was’nt an accident. I love what the sling library gave me, both in terms of hiring and trying, or simply advice, I’d volunteered and loved the camaraderie and sense of belonging and usefulness at a time where everything is about the digestive tract (teeth food or poo). I completed my Masters education and the chance to give back and grow the sling library brand became available, how could I turn it down!
Now when I go to work, my children see me helping people, they have formed friendships with me and they can be good demonstation aids too! You can find me at the Holmfirth sling library every week
