Sheffield Sling Library
and Sheffield Babywearers got together to hold a Macmillan Coffee morning this week, and it was a huge success! Eighteen mums and dads came down with their children to help raise £50 for Macmillan Cancer Support
. And lots of those parents left the library with a baby carrier to try out for a couple of weeks.
Sheffield Sling Library owner Natasha was particularly pleased to be able to help seven new parents just starting out on their babywearing journey. The library is a fabulous resource for established babywearers, but for new ones it's invaluable as it gives parents a chance to get to grips with all the options before they spend any money. Our local Sheffield sling meets
are also a great way to try out all sorts of baby slings.
New babywearers who are a bit flummoxed by it all can always check out our handy listing of sling types
and read our guide on how to get started
A couple of the yummy cakes that were on sale at the coffee morning - the hosts were too busy to get any photos of people eating them!
