Laura of Sheffield Sling Library has helped more babywearers than she can remember. She has been there for so many parents, to lend out slings and to advise on using them, and I'm sure I can speak for everyone who has ever used the library in saying we are incredibly grateful for her help.

However, life moves on, and with the birth of her new baby boy Laura is handing over the reins (and the library stock!) to Natasha, who will be the new librarian and owner of Sheffield Sling Library. Laura will now enjoy attending sling meets as a regular babywearer, but will always be willing to help others out with the benefit of her experience and Trageschule qualification.

Members of Sheffield Babywearers talk to expectant parents about babywearing at the Mothercare Baby & Me show
Three Sheffield Babywearers had a stand at the Expectant Parent event hosted by Mothercare in Sheffield. Using fairy cakes as bait, we reeled in lots of expectant parents to tell them about the joys of babywearing. We explained different kinds of slings and the ways in which they can make a parent's life easier. All three of us agreed that babywearing has saved our sanity at one point or another!
