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

Thank you, on behalf of the Sheffield Sling Library, to everyone who came along and/or donated cake! It was a fantastic event, and I loved seeing so many new faces - of course, I always love seeing the old faces too! ;-)
