Next Slingmeet / Notices / Upcoming Events

Late July Slingmeet – 29 July 2016

We hope you can join us for our second July slingmeet

Due to both The Big Latch On in early August clashing with our meet and July having five weeks instead of four we are holding our August meet at the end of July!

Date and Time

From 10am-12pm on Friday 29 July 2016 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 “sling library” for $20 per lending period (1 month) for your first hire, and subsequent hires are $10 per month. 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.  Due to the popularity of our meets many of our carriers are being reserved prior to the meet, so if there was something in particular you wanted to try-on and/or hire you can send us an email to with ‘carrier reserve’ in the subject line and let us know what you might like to reserve.

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.

Experienced and interested in joining the Babywearing Wellington Committee?
