    Hi🙂 I’ve been looking for a sling library in my area and notice there doesn’t seem to be anything for at least 50 miles so I was wondering about setting up my own. I live in an area that seems quite open to babywearing so think it would be well received but have no idea where to start.
    I’ve been wearing my own children for 3.5 years and am hoping to do the trageschule course once my next baby is born but do I need any official qualifications to go ahead with a library? How do I go about publicising, sorting out stock etc? Do I need insurance? The idea was suggested to me by a health visitor at my sure start centre so I know I’d have interest from the local centres etc but still not sure where to go from here.
    Any advice would be lovely🙂

    HI I am beginning up a sling library in Teignbridge, Devon. It said on your home page that you have information. I just want to double check that I have covered everything before I make it go live. Great idea btw to have this. I shall look forward passing on my details to you to add to your library list!
    Thanks!

      Hi Kate.

      If you go to the find a library page, there is a contact form which if you pop all your library details on to I will get you added to the list. I’m on holiday for 10days from tomorrow though.

      What questions do you have? Will try my best.

    Hello – I’m interested to know if there are industry standard sling loan forms/criteria available? How do libraries ensure they have covered themselves for liability n the event of injury during hire? I saw the excellent forms used by South London Sling Library and wondered if the quality of this loan information was unique or whether there is any control or support for those libraries wishing to loan and who require the liability waiver to do so safely?

    Good Afternoon,
    We at Tots Bots are relaunching a new and improved Papoozle with its very own website, very exciting. Whilst we will be attending the Baby Wearing Conference in July I was wondering how I can reach out to all the sling libraries regarding the new product.
    Many Thanks, Rachael

    Hi,
    I’ve been looking at a sling library for Coventry as there currently isn’t one.
    I’ve just had my first baby and have found slings/soft carriers really friendly and I’ve had loads of people asking me about them wherever I go and had some great advice off a friend about them too.

    I just wanted to know what qualifications are needed and how do they operate in general.

    I have been informed of sling library by my midwife!
    I have a 11 day old baby of which I am breast feeding but also a 3 year old that requires my attention whilst I am feeding so thought a sling would be a good idea! I am unsure what sling to get so thought I could trial a few to find the right one!
    Please contact me via email or mobile 07813438134.

    Many thanks,

    Hi guys. Would really like some more details on how I go about aetting uo a sling library. I already run a nappy library but am looking at expanding my customer base and my lical nct branch are keen that I team up with them to offer a greater service. Are there courses you would recommend?

  23. Sharna, have you considered training as a babywearing consultant? Most sling librarians find that babywearing training provides them with the necessary knowledge to help parents chose a suitable baby carrier. You can see all available babywearing courses listed on CarryingCourses website.

      Hello Jazmine, thank you for your question. In your case it would be best to consult a trained babywearing consultant who would be able to advise you.

    Hi.
    I would like to know about setting up a sling library taking into account the other requirements along the resources I need. I am interested in making it as a business and perhaps also sells some products too.
    What do I need in order to own a library and as a owner do I need to be registered or pay taxes for having this business at this moment?
    I’m not sure if there are any legal requirements or so. Please advice!
