Latest slings

We have gained some new slings for the Library; some preloved, some new.

Firstly, we have two Wrapsody Hybrids stretchy wraps in Stellar and Alyssa patterns.

Secondly, we have three Beachfront Baby water slings – useful as a carrying aid for your baby/child- at the beach, under the shower, allowing your hands free in shallow water.


Thirdly, a generous donation from a library borrower of a beautiful Oscha ring sling- which has arrived through the letterbox. This sling is perfect for a special occasion this summer!

Connecta Boutique


Josie and Emily have been visiting one of the few bricks and mortar sling shops in the UK: The Connecta Boutique. The shop is based in Godalming and is home to the Connecta soft carriers and other brands such as Girasol, Wrapsody, Sakura Bloom, Grimm’s wooden toys and fiddle twiddle necklaces.

We spent nearly 3 hours discussing the benefits of Connecta’s, tips and tricks for optimum usage, trying on slings and choosing goodies for the Library. We left with 2 Solarweave Connecta’s and 2 regular material Connecta’s in baby size and toddler. These are all fantastic additions to our library stock – just in time for the longer Spring/Summer days.

TwinGo Carrier in Oxford

The TwinGo is the first ergonomic twin baby carrier designed to carry one or two children of equal or varied sizes. Works great for twins or children of different ages! This carrier can be worn as a dual carrier or divided into two separate carriers.

The dual carry is ideal when at least one baby is 4+ months
with strong and consistent head/neck control
Whichever is the larger child should be carried in the back (if weight difference is greater than 3lbs).

We have the TwinGo on loan to us in Oxford until April 10th and then it travels to a sling library in Scotland!


Contact Josie to arrange a trial session.
