Welcome to Sheffield Slings’ website. We are one of the largest sling communities in the UK, with over 1,300 members in our Facebook group, and new members joining all the time. The group chats about all aspects of parenting, life in general- and of course slings! Members create meets to suit their family and times, we have fixed meets where our demo stash of slings is available for people to try out, and with 13 trained Babywearing Peer Supporters and 21 Babywearing consultants- plus many experienced slingers- there’s always someone to help with any queries you may have.
We started as a small group of parents who met through our mutual love of carrying our children in slings. We became friends and decided to set up a group to promote sling use around the city we call home, and share our experiences of parenting, its joys and frustrations, pooling our collective knowledge and varying parenting styles in a forum that would be encouraging and supportive. This website has grown out of the enthusiasm of the many wonderful group of people who have joined the original five of us!
Our Facebook forum can be found here – please come and join us. The group is closed for privacy as we have photos of our children on the page, but we welcome all new additions, and look forwards to making new friends!
We can also be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a look at the information on our website, send us an email or join the group. Happy slinging!
