If any of these statements describe you, than come to the Slingmeets!
The first Friday of the month, from 10am until 11.30am at Trinity Union Hall, Newtown.
Wellington babywearing meets will be held at Trinity Union Church on Hall Avenue (behind Lychgate Mall) in Newtown. A big space, central location, with some onsite parking.
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!
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.
