If you’re in Shetland and interested in hiring a sling or baby carrier you’ve come to the right place. We have a good selection available to hire for £5 a week, and can help you find one that suits you and your baby.

The library is run by Hazel Ann Johnson and Louise Thomason. We are two mams who have found babywearing invaluable, and would like to help others carry their babies and children safely and comfortably.

We’ve undertaken peer support training through Born To Carry.

Feel free to send us a message here or email shetlandslinglibrary@gmail.com, or alternatively come along to one of our monthly meets.

We hold them regularly – the details will be posted on this page as well as our Facebook page, which can be found here.

For local support and chat about all things sling-y, join the Shetland Sling Meet Facebook group.
