Babywearing Safety

Carrying your baby in a sling is a beautiful way to bond and make a deep connection. It also enables you to get on with the everyday – whether it’s negotiating with other children, or just a hot cup of tea, having your baby in a sling or carrier can make that all so much easier.

Carrying your baby or toddler in a sling is perfectly safe when practiced with common sense and understanding. As with all things in life a cupful of knowledge and a sprinkling of common sense is the best recipe to ensure a happy carrying experience for you and your little one. We only hire quality baby carriers and slings and provide instructions on their use.

As a Trageschule UK and Slingababy trained Consultants, we can help answer any questions regarding sling safety that you have.

We promote slings and carriers that provide optimal comfort for your baby and for you and the slings and carriers we hire provide great support and the best possible positioning for your baby.
