The South London Sling Library was founded in June 2011 by Emily, mum to 2, and experienced Babywearing Consultant. The Sling Library is an entirely self-funded service that Emily set up because she was passionate about helping all parents carry their babies! With very limited resources she started very small and SLSL’s Sarah still runs all services to fit around looking after her own children.
In 2016, Sarah started working alongside Emily, & in 2018, as Emily moved on to other things, Sarah bought the Library & has continued to support parents & families around South London.
Our regular Workshops have become very popular and we’ve gradually been able to build up our resources; we buy new slings and carriers whenever we can afford them, and undergo additional training to expand the range of products and services we’re able to offer.
The SLSL is a very small organisation (just Sarah & the wonderful SLSL Volunteers), but we are knowledgeable, very experienced, and enthusiastic! We aim to provide easy-to-access expert information about safe, comfortable babywearing and baby carriers to as many people as possible. Find out more about How We Can Help you with slings and baby carriers.
You can read some comments from users of our service on our Facebook page.
The Library is open to any parent or carer who’d like help with carriers and slings (whether you’re from South London or not!). If you have any further questions about the SLSL and the services we offer, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
