Hartlepool Sling Library

Hartlepool Attachment Parenting Group's sling library offers free, unqualified, peer-to-peer babywearing support and information. The library has a variety of slings available to try, so you can see if they work for you and your child before buying your own. We are on hand to show you how to put them on and get your child in and out safely.

Our loan fees are £3 per fortnight, which raises funds to replace slings as they wear out and purchase new slings for the library. Consecutive loans are allowed, as long as the sling has not been requested by another parent.

A returnable deposit, of the carrier's replacement value (minimum £30), is required with all loans. The deposit will be returned to the hirer when the sling is received back in the same condition as it was loaned. Our full T&C are available upon request.
