Welcome to Bristol Sling Library!

Bristol Sling Library exists to help parents to find the best sling or carrier for them and their child. Good quality comfortable slings can be expensive and we would like to help families to have an easy way to try before they buy. There is no sling or carrier that is the best for everyone and what suits you will depend on your size and shape and situation. We aim to have a wide range of carriers that you can come and try and then hire for a short period to see if they suit your needs.

The library is open every other Tuesday from 10:00am ’til 12pm during the Bristol Natural Parenting Group meet at Bubba Hub in Bedminster. Also we sometimes visit Playful in Bishopston, from 1pm till 3pm. More information about hiring can be found in the How to hire a sling section of this website.
