If you’re keen to give babywearing a go, try a different carrier or style to what you already have, get troubleshooting on your own carrier, or hang out with other babywearers, come and join us. Being our last meet before the holidays, we will put on a morning tea so feel free to come along as we create our own ‘parents’ christmas party!
Date: Friday 6th December 2019
Time: 10 – 11.30AM
Location: Trinity Union Hall, Hall Street, Newtown (behind Lychgate Mall)
We start off our meeting with a quick introduction to babywearing guidelines and safety tips, a demonstration of different styles of carriers 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:
Our library includes stretchy wraps, woven wraps, meh dai, SSCs and ring slings. It only costs you a one off fee of $20 to become a lifetime member, and all proceeds go towards running and updating the library, and keeping our meetings running. Babywearing Wellington members can hire baby carriers from our “sling library” for $10 per month.

Want to know more? More information about our carrier library, and about Babywearing Wellington, can be found on our website https://babywearingwellington.org.nz/ and on our Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/babywearingwellington
Can’t make the meet? Reserve a carrier online here https://babywearingwellington.myturn.com/library/ However, please note that online hires are processed after the meet so your chosen carrier may not be available, in the comments of your hire please advise if there are alternative options you would like should your first choice be unavailable.
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!
