Top tip for… planning for a new arrival

I get asked a lot – should I come to the Sling Library before or after my baby is here?

The answer is either!

If you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed in pregnancy or have a lot on your plate thinking about slings doesn’t have to be done right now. Take a load off. Sit down. Have a biscuit. Whatever makes you feel more relaxed. There’s lots of benefits to waiting until the baby is here – you’ll know more about what you’ll both need to be comfy after delivery and can check what works in the real scenario!

If you’re feeling a bit underprepared and nervous in pregnancy, and want to have a plan in mind for carrying your baby, then come on down! We can try out many things above a bump with one of our lighter weighted demo dolls, and hopefully you can come away with a plan that makes you feel more relaxed.

So it’s really about feeling relaxed. Relax! Relax right now!! Are you relaxed yet?!??! 😉

But, in all seriousness, the key stuff you need to know is just that:

  • There’s often some trial and error in finding out what works for both of you. That’s totally normal. I’d generally avoid buying something new you’ve never tried before as you might not get on with it.
  • You can usually reserve a sling and pick it up the next day, or get it posted to you in 24 hours
  • If you really need something we don’t have in stock right then, email me and I’ll make sure you get what you need as quickly as possible.

Now back to that relaxing 🙂
