Find out about Slingababy

When you attend a Slingababy consultancy course, you will gain a wealth of knowledge including: tying techniques for all types of slings, the physiology of both baby and parent, teaching techniques to suit different learning styles and so much more. Our course offers consultants a respectful, whilst complete, approach to teaching baby-carrying. We believe that, as a consultant, our role is to give space for parents to grow into who they want to be, using baby-carrying as a tool.

Not only is the course of the best quality, the add-ons that you gain access to after the course will make sure that you keep on growing. You will also become a part of the Slingababy consultant community, a group of people with a love of baby-carrying with whom you can share experiences and where many great friendships have been formed.

Slingababy was founded in 2011 with the aim of empowering parents through the loving art of baby-carrying. Following years of training and hands-on experience with parents the Slingababy School was born and is able to offer a course that shares information on every sling type available as well as various teaching methods. The school’s vision is to ensure all trainees can start practising as consultants after the four-day training course.


When you attend a Slingababy peer support course, you can expect the same quality of teaching but the content and style are more relaxed. The course aims to build your basic knowledge in a way that will empower you to learn more and more whilst getting the hands-on experience as a peer supporter. Your confidence will grow both in how to reach out and on the basics of the techniques on the main five types of slings.

When you attend a baby-carrying and infant feeding course, you can also expect the Slingababy ethos throughout, applied to infant feeding. Carrying and feeding are skills that have been forgotten and you may like to grow your confidence when it comes to helping others with combining these two skills.
