What is a sling library?
Are you thinking of purchasing a carrier but don’t know which one to go for? Do you already have a carrier and just need some reassurance that you’re using it correctly and safely?
A Sling Library allows you to try on a range of different slings, get help and ask questions. You can also hire a sling of your choice to see how it works for you and your baby. For more tailored support and advice you could also visit a qualified Carrying Consultant. Most Sling Libraries and Consultancies are run by independent enthusiasts, and they all operate in different ways, so check what carrying support services are available near you.
What does Izmi do to help sling librarians?
Izmi was the brainchild of Emily Williamson, mum of two and experienced Carrying Consultant. Emily founded South London Slings, and understands first-hand how useful it is for parents to get good quality carrier advice and demonstrations. We want to make it easy for all parents to try our carriers out in person and be able to the help they need to make the most of their carrier or wrap.
We offer Sling Libraries a special discount scheme in order to make our baby carriers accessible. If you run a sling library and would like to get more information, please email us to find out more.
