About Us

Wirral Sling Library exists to help people find the right sling or carrier to enable them to carry children from newborn up to toddlers and preschoolers. We have a wide variety of slings and carriers in stock, and have a far bigger range than any high street shop – we have more than 80 slings and carriers in our inventory from 26 different brands! Let one of Wirral Sling Library’s Consultants or Peer Supporters help find the right one for you.

Meet the team

Emily Dickenson

I own and run Wirral Sling Library having volunteered for 5 years before taking over in 2018.

I am a Babywearing Consultant trained by Slingababy.

I’ve carried all three of my children and love the bonding it brings as well as the practicalities.
I’m a keen wrapper, (carrying using a woven wrap), I particularly like the artistry and endless options for different ways of tying a wrap. 

I especially love teaching how to carry a newborn.

I also love the colour blue, bacon sandwiches and cake.

 

Ruth Grint

Having discovered the sling library when my little boy was 3 weeks old, I have never left! In the early days I loved our stretchy wrap, and now our ring sling is our go to essential.

I trained as a Peer Supporter, and later as a Consultant, with Slingababy.

I love helping parents to use slings as a way of dealing with the day to day practicalities of family life.

When not slinging I work in the NHS and am partial to mince pies and toasted teacakes.
