Kendal and the Lake District now has a sling library! Run by Koala Slings, our sling meets and library sessions are a great chance to get some help with slings or carriers, try a few out, and hire one if you want a longer trial.
We have a growing number of slings and carriers available for hire. Baby slings are a bit like a pair of jeans, what one person loves may be uncomfortable for someone with a different body shape or just different needs or a different budget. A good baby sling is an investment, so it's worth being sure that you like a particular one before buying.
We are adding to the sling library collection all the time, so that parents can try out different slings and carriers before making a purchase. We know that not everyone can get to our sling library sessions in a big area like the Lake District, so we offer postal hire too.
As a Koala Slings library customer, we can give you discount codes for several leading retailers, including 5% off anything in stock at Koala Slings.
