SOUTHAMPTON SLING MEET
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: FROM MAY WE WILL BE HOLDING AN ADDITIONAL MEET EACH MONTH IN BURSLEDON ON THE THIRD FRIDAY OF THE MONTH.
Southampton Sling Meet is run by a team of volunteers. Both Lucy and Gemma are Babywearing Consultants having attended training with Slingababy, a UK Babywearing School. We are fortunate to be supported at meets by other volunteers who are themselves experienced baby wearers and are due to attend Peer Supporter training in 2015.
We currently meet once a month in Bursledon, a short drive from the M27 it is easily accessed by road, rail or bus. Dates can be found in the Dates tab above.
Our meets are not just for people looking to hire a carrier, everyone is welcome whether to hire or just meet up with other parents interested in Babywearing so pop along for some tea and cake!
If you wish to hire a carrier you can do so for a two week or one month period. Our charges are £3 for two weeks or £5 for the month. A deposit will also need to be left to cover the value of the item. You can leave a cheque deposit (the cheque remains uncashed and is returned when you return the carrier) or you can leave a cash or paypal deposit which is refunded upon return of the carrier. Deposits vary from approx £30 for stretchy wraps, between £40 and £80 for woven wraps and approx £80 for most soft structured carriers (buckle carriers) and Mei Tai's.
