We are able to offer one-to-one sling fittings and advice with one of our qualified sling consultants. These are suitable for anyone from parents-to-be, through to sling users who are looking for advice and tips to improve their sling using experience.
We are able to spend time with you listening to what you need and want from your sling using experience and tailor your experience to yours and your child's specific needs.
If you or your child have any special physical or medical needs that may affect your use of slings, we will work with you and any medical professionals supporting you to find the best solutions so that you can feel fully confident.
These cost £25 for a 60-90 minute appointment, and take place in the shop. If you would prefer a home consultation, we have a team of consultants who may be able to offer you the same support in your home, depending on your geographical location - please do check with us before booking.
If it sounds like you will need a longer consultation to meet your needs, we will talk to you about that in advance. The consultation price and time above is usually enough for people who are new to slings and have no specific medical or physical needs.
Most consultations take place on Mondays and Tuesdays, but they are also available at other times.
These cost £12.50 and last for 30-45 minutes. They are designed for parents who already have a sling and who need someone to show them how to use it safely and comfortably with their baby or child. We usually do them in the shop, but if you would like one at home, and it is geographically close enough to the consultant coming out, we can do a mini consultation at home for £17.50.
Why the flexible timing? We realise that baby's do not work to our timetables and may need feeding, changing, cuddling, sleeps and entertainment that is difficult to plan for. We will try and find out as much as possible form you before your appointment though a questionnaire and discussion via e-mail or telephone so that we are able to tailor the time completely to your requirements.
