NEW HIRERS
In order to keep track of our slings, we use an online lending library platform called MYTURN. We will set up a free account for you on MyTurn so that we know what sling you have on hire. Via MyTurn, you will receive automatic reminders when the sling is due back and be given the opportunity to rehire it if wished.

All sling hires from us require a deposit: a fixed rate amount of £50. Babywearing clothing hires require a £30 deposit.
Deposits can be made by CHEQUE. This is our preferred option as the admin time processing it back and forth is less. If you have a chequebook, please dig it out and bring it to the sling library.
We also accept PAYPAL or BACS.
