Frequently Asked Questions


What people say

about Wirral Sling Library and Slings


After buying a couple of slings and finding they didn't suit us, I realised I needed some expert advice and to either just rent or try before I buy.

I was so made up to find a sling both me and my little one are comfortable with, and quick and easy to use so I can get him upright quickly when his reflux starts.

It was also great to have someone to show me how to use it. I would recommend the sling library to anyone !



I have gone from knowing nothing about babywearing to absolutely loving it, and I pretty much don't shhh about it!

Apart from the obvious practical side of being hands free, I love being so close to my baby and the connection it brings, which benefits us both.

I also enjoy going to the library for the social side.



My little girl was 4 months old and no longer liked the sling we had as she wanted to be able to look out at the world. Thanks to the sling library, I got a sling that my daughter loves. She can still see the world and face me.

Oh and daddy can wear the sling to give me a break. I can't thank you enough.
