Babies love to be held. Make your life easier by using a sling or carrier safely. Your baby will feel secure and snug. Parenting will be a tiny bit easier as a result.

WHAT TO EXPECT from slings and baby carriers:
Amazing feeling & sense of Attachment to their primary caregivers. Science has proven that this is beneficial to forming strong healthy relationships later on in life. Great for everyone.
Breastfeeding/Bonding friendly. Learn how to use slings as a breastfeeding aid, or best positions for bottle-feeding. Everyone gets to bond with baby and baby gets to see the world with you, watch your interactions, learn and process the world around them.
Cuddles/Comfort - carrying your baby or toddler gives you both extra snuggle time.
Doing - get lots done! Or nothing. Enjoy the options.

All hires are subject to our Hire Agreement and latest version of our Terms and Conditions. Your baby's safety is paramount. Please check on your baby frequently. Thank you.
