Come Along

Do any of the following describe you?

  • You want to buy a carrier but you’re not quite sure which one
  • You have a carrier but have not had much luck getting a comfortable fit
  • You’ve never used a baby carrier but wouldn’t mind trying
  • You want to carry your baby while you do other activities
  • You want day-time sleeps to be less of a struggle
  • You would like to learn more about the traditions of babywearing
  • You are an experienced “baby wearer” and want to meet like-minded people
  • You would like to share your babywearing experience with others

If any of these statements describe you, than come to the Slingmeets!

Babywearing Wellington holds one slingmeet per month where you can come along to find out about babywearing, get help with choosing and using various carriers,  hire a carrier to try out at home, or simply chat with like-minded people.

All welcome: mums, dads, caregivers, parents to be, babies, toddlers and their supportive friends and family. Please feel free to invite anybody you think may be interested. You do not have to be a baby wearer to attend slingmeets either!

Slingmeet 6Sept13 068

Free to attend! There is a one-off sign-up cost of $20 to become a Babywearing Wellington member. It then costs $10 to hire any carrier in our library for one month, or, $10 for 3 months if you are wanting to hire a stretchy wrap.

A note about food and drink
Please feel free to bring your own takeaway coffee and snacks, there are cafes near the venue if you want to pop in before attending the meet. With so many small children in attendance, we have some guidelines to keep your children and your morning tea out of harm’s way. We ask that you keep your food and drink out of the reach of toddlers and those babies learning to walk, this will help us by reducing mess or breakages and keep children safe from scalding and unintentional exposure to things they may have allergies to.
