Sunderland Sling Library


Born to be worn

Sunderland Sling Library is one of the North East sling libraries, we closed down due to COVID and now only offer 1:1 consultations.

CLOSED for hires, however, there is still stock left to buy.
OPEN for 1:1 Consultations to help you with your own sling or to try the stock for sale.

So what is the sling library?

Sunderland Sling Library is an organisation ran by a team of volunteers where you can come along to try a variety of slings with the option of hiring them before you make a decision to purchase one.

We can offer advice and sling demonstrations enabling you to see how slings fit and can be used safely.

Costs (2022): 

1:1 consultations are £20 for an hour

52 Nilverton Avenue, Ashbrooke, SR2 7TS - Please email/facebook message to arrange.

Slingmeets are held across the North East are also social events where the volunteers also have their children with them, we will try to advise, demo slings and help in any way possible however if you want specific help a consultation may be a better option for you.

Any donations would be very welcome. Thank you xxx

Slings For Beginners Events:

Perfect time to come along and learn about the different types of slings, There will be an introduction to using slings in general, a safety demo and an introduction of the different type of slings - their suitability to different ages and situations. You will also be able to try the different slings and ask any questions you may have. Please inquire if you have a group of people that you feel this would be suitable for.

Who am I?

Hello! My name is Lizzie Newby, I am a School of Babywearing trained consultant. I set up the Sunderland Sling Library to help the locals try out a variety of slings without having to buy one without knowing if it will be right for you. When the library was in full swing Sling hire was generally £10 per month and 1:1 consultation is still £20.
