Benefits of Babywearing / Past Slingmeet Topics

February Slingmeet – Babywearing 101

Friday 7th February

10 – 12pm

The Southern Cross Bar and Restaurant
39 Abel Smith St, Te Aro
(In the “Guest Room”)
This month’s presentation is “Babywearing 101”
IMG_7298This is a great general introduction into babywearing – we’ll talk about:
– the benefits for mum (or dad) and baby
 – cover the basic safety rules to remember
 – demo a few of the different styles of carriers “in action.”
After the presentation, there will be time to hire any of the carriers that are available in our library. We can also help guide and troubleshoot with your existing carrier, so be sure to bring it along.

Please note: The Babywearing Wellington Committee will be represented a little less comprehensively than usual, so we might not be able to get around to everyone, or have the wisdom within our group to assist with your problem.  We’re happy to answer any questions you may have about all aspects of babywearing and about any type of baby carrier, but if you have a burning carrier question that really needs to be addressed at this slingmeet, it’d be great if you could message us prior to the meet and we will try our darndest to have the answer/carrier to hand. 

Baby carrier library
Babywearing Wellington members can hire baby carriers from our carrier library for $5 per week. Our library includes stretchy wraps, woven wraps, mei tais, SSCs and ring slings. It only costs you $10 to become a member, and all proceeds go towards running and updating the library, and to keeping our meetings accessible.

Bring your friends!
Our meetings are open to the public, so please feel free to invite anyone you think might be interested – friends, family, other mums and dads… you don’t have to have a baby to be a babywearing supporter!


Hope to see you there!
