Welcome to Norwich Sling Library
Norwich sling library has been helping families to carry their children safely and comfortably since 2011, run by a fully trained babywearing consultant and a team of volunteer peer supporters.
***All sessions are currently on hold due to covid 19. We are offering postal hire, video call support and 1-2-1 consultations – please get in touch to book***
We offer two Library sessions per month: First at Twinkle Toes cafe on Sussex street, Norwich on the second Thursday of each month, then a session at Locomotion coffee inside The Garage performing arts studio on the fourth Thursday.
Both sessions are free to attend and in child friendly venues with areas to play. Refreshments and lunch available to purchase . We aim to provide a friendly, warm environment and want everyone to feel welcome. We welcome diverse families of all kinds. Our sessions are wheelchair accessible.
In a library session we can offer you a 10 minute slot with a trained peer supporter (with a baby wearing consultant always on hand) in which we can help you with front or hip carries, either using your own sling or up to two of ours, and advise you on safety. You are then welcome to hire from our large range of carriers if you wish.
For back carries, or for more in-depth learning, we offer private consultations in your own home with a fully qualified and insured babywearing consultant. Please see our consultation page for details.
We aim to promote safe and comfortable babywearing as carrying your baby has positive effects for both baby and parent, helping promote attachment/bonding and giving parents more freedom whilst keeping baby close and secure.
