      Sling Library Over 5 months drop in

      Holmfirth Sling library - over 5 months old, or been to a Bump to Baby session before. Advice, Fitting, Hire. Why Come? Getting the most of your (p)maternity leave is vital, you worked hard to get to this point (especially if you are, or plan to be a stay at home parent). Using a baby carrier can help you both bond with your baby, and get things done! Choosing time out doors is important socially and for your health, but where do you go and is it pram friendly? Do you really want to be lifting a pram in and out of the boot or could you slip on a sling? Can you push a pram and carry a child? Sometimes having a sling in the base of the pram is the perfect solution for those moments baby needs to be held and you need to carry on. When baby is in the normal carrying position you both feel supported and connected, they get to see the world from your view and conversation and communication increases. These are just some of the many ways carrying in a well sling/baby carrier can help you get through the days with a young baby. As their confidence and development grows you may find they want more independance - choosing to "WALK MUMMY, WALK!!" This is often a transitional time in building stamina and strength, and many children set off determined to walk the whole way, and then end up in the parents arms being carried. My own daughter still shouts she can walk the whole 20 mile journey, rather than go in the car seat! What do you do? Here at we help you find the carrier that fits and is comfortable for both you and your child. Holmfirth slinglibrary is just one of 6 sessions held weekly across Kirklees and Calderdale.  If there is something specific you would like to try then please get in touch, otherwise just turn up - we have access to many different types and styles of baby carrier/slings at each session, there's something for everyone. Why not try before you buy, get advice and fitting of the one you were given, and get more from your days by having a sling to give hands free cuddles How Much? Theres no charge to our sessions, but we are a not for profit organisation so any donations help us continue with this service.  Hire fees are from £6.50 and deposits £40 Any questions your quickest response will be from on Facebook.
