For Slings & Carriers

  • Hire. We recommend It’s a Sling Thing
  • Buy second hand. We recommend Jeni at Little Possums Pre-loved. They offer options for most purses including a pay as you feel selection which you may find suitable for training and demos. There are also second hand boards on Facebook but these may feel overwhelming.
  • Buy new. Depending on what you need we may suggest different retailers, so drop us an email or call Lorette to discuss your specific needs.
