We hope you can join us for Babywearing Wellington’s 2015 May Slingmeet. Please note we will be missing a couple of our regular Babywearing Wellington team members this meet, so please be patient with us and help each other out where you can 🙂
Date and Time
From 10am-12pm on Friday 1 May 2015 in the guest room at The Southern Cross Bar and Restaurant – 39 Abel Smith St, Te Aro
We start off our meeting with a quick introduction to the committee, and a run through of babywearing guidelines/safety tips and then there will be time to get advice, hire carriers, or catch up with fellow babywearers. If you are new to babywearing or our slingmeets it would be great if you could arrive in time for the introduction talk. We’re happy to answer any questions you may have about any aspect of babywearing and about any type of baby carrier. If we can’t answer your questions we can refer you to someone who can.
Baby carrier library
Babywearing Wellington members can hire baby carriers from our “library” for $5 per week for your first hire, and subsequent hires are $2.50 per week. Our library includes stretchy wraps, woven wraps, mei tais, SSCs and ring slings. It only costs you a one off fee of $10 to become a lifetime member, and all proceeds go towards running and updating the library, and keeping our meetings running. We don’t always have the full library with us, so if you’d like to borrow or try out something in particular, please let us know, and we’ll do our best to bring it along.
If you have a carrier to return please arrive early and bring it up to us before the meeting starts.

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! Buggies/strollers/prams etc all welcome – you don’t have to be babywearing to join in the fun.
Hope to see you there! The Babywearing Wellington team
– Sharing the wearing –
Please note: The Babywearing Wellington Committee is a voluntary group of people passionate about babywearing, but we are not necessarily experts on everything to do with babywearing. At slingmeets, 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 and/or carrier to hand. Thanks!
