***COVID-19 UPDATE, LOCKDOWN 3****(Jan-Feb.2021)
During the third lockdown, we are unable to provide face-to-face support unless very essential. What does this means for the sling library? Our top priorities are to support you and to keep you safe, so we will continue to offer:
Online video consultations with your slings or with hired sling, and information consultation (demos, questions etc…). We will tailor-make the video consultation to suit your needs. Please get in touch to schedule a consultation at email@example.com, text 07916349685 or DM our social media.
Contactless doorstep sling hire with/without online consultation.
Home consultations (legally permitted) if face-to-face is really essential.
Sling hire with doorstep drop-off (within cycling distance), with/without online consultation or doorstep demo.
5% discounts on slings/carriers we retail , with sales profits going to the sling library.
Babywearing socks sales with postage/contactless pick-up
Anything else you need, just ask! To get in touch!
Private consultations are tailored-made to address your needs and last a minimum of 1 hour. They are organised outside of the sling library sessions so there is no rush to end the consultation if you decide you want more time. Timings are more flexible and are available at the weekend. Private consultations are suitable for expectant parents, new parents, experienced babywearers, parents of twins and multiples, parents who want to tandem carry and parents of toddlers. They are a good option if:
- You are new to the world of babywearing and don’t know where to start, whether you are expecting a baby or want to start carrying your little one
- You want to explore various types of slings whether you are new to babywearing or have some experience already
- You want to learn more complex skills such as back carrying with a woven wrap or explore tandem carrying options
- You want to learn how to carry in different positions with one sling or 2 slings
- You want lots of time to try on all sort of buckle carriers
- You want to also learn how to feed your baby in the sling
- and more!
Private consultations are held either at Mel’s home in Bethnal Green or at your home.
