Sling Hire

Kendal and the Lake District has its very own sling hire service via 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 one out, and hire one if you want a longer trial. 

We have over 60 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 a worthwhile investment, so we help you to be 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, you have 10% discount on anything in stock at Koala Slings.
