Parents often want to know where their local sling advice resources can be found, to get some help with carrying their baby safely. Personal support can be invaluable when it comes to getting to grips with using and enjoying a sling. Here is a Google Map of all the places in the UK and Ireland where you can get trained help with slings and carriers. It contains the details of

  • all the sling and carrier consultants (all should be insured, some are registered with BABI)
  • all the sling libraries
  • all the sling meets

Simply enter your location on the map and find the nearest markers! (If your local sling resource is not here, please contact us for them to be added!)  Alternatively, scroll through the areas below. If you press the CTRL key and F, a little Find box should appear for you to type in your area
