Babywearing Workshops

Our workshops run with just 6 people and are an affordable way to develop your babywearing knowledge and skills. Please see our ‘Upcoming Events’ Page for details of workshops

Our workshops are:

  • Babywearing 101 (Everything you need to know to get started)

  • Back Carry with Buckles (How to safely and proficiently back carry your child)

  • Wrappers Delight (Woven Workshop)

Sling Libraries

Sling Libraries are a great way to try different types of carriers, wraps & slings before you commit to buying. As we are all different heights, body shapes and have babies of varying ages and size, it’s not a one size fits all for babywearing. Sling Libraries have Peer Support Trained or Consultants available to advice you and show you how to wear safely and correctly.

Most will only charge a minimal fee for you to hire for between 2 to 4 weeks at a time. Please see a list of Sling Libraries in Greater Manchester below.
