Welcome to South London Slings!

We are an independent, Mum-run service providing expert sling and baby carrier advice classes and hire from locations across South London. All of our Consultants are qualified and insured.

SUMMER WORKSHOPS 2018: We will be running a reduced calendar during August, due to school holidays/childcare. Workshops in Crystal Palace & Forest Hill will run through July & restart in September. We will have a variety of available sessions running in Lewisham, which can be found on our calendar.

NEW FOR 2018:  We now run our fantastic Carrying Advice Workshops from multiple locations.  We no longer have a main office.  To get our help please book onto a workshop, or email us to find out more.

Spaces on our workshops are limited so PRE-BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL!   Click here to book onto any Carrying Advice Session:  Book Online

Sling Library Move & Locations 2017-18

We can now announce that the Sling Library will stop running workshops and classes from our location at 194 Beckenham Road in January 2018.  Beckenham workshops and reception open times will stay as they are until Christmas 2017.

BUT we are NOT closing down!  We will continue to run expert carrying advice workshops and offer sling and carrier hire in South London, we’ll just be operating in a new and more flexible way from multiple locations – Exciting! 😀

New Sling Library Locations for 2018

SW16 – We are already offering sling hires and running weekly Newborn and Bigger Baby Workshops, plus a range of other specialist carrying workshops at the Wear My Baby Boutique in SW16 every Thursday.  See the Wear My Baby Website for more details.

Penge/Crystal Palace – We are seeking a venue to run a pop up library service 2-4 times per month in SE19/SE20.  Please contact us if you have any recommendations for a good venue!

Forest Hill – We hope to start offering a weekly carrying advice workshop and hire service in Forest Hill, SE23 very very soon!

Beckenham – You can now get great carrying advice through private consultations with Becca, who is operating as Wear My Baby Beckenham.  We hope to start offering at least one sling hire session a month in Beckenham.


As always, we can’t help you with trying on and choosing carriers if you just drop in.  Pre-booking your Carrying Advice session or hire is ESSENTIAL.  Always check our class times and locations before travelling to avoid dissapointment! 

All opening times and classes can be viewed and booked online here: https://v1.bookwhen.com/southlondonslings

We’ll keep you updated as we finalise details so keep checking our website and social media. This is a HUGE change for us so please bear with us as we work everything out over the coming months. Thank you!
