Babywearing has traditionally been a skill passed from mother to daughter, friend to friend etc. In the age of the internet, forums and YouTube this is continuing and that is what the sling library aims to do, help the North east to carry their babies big and small.
So how are we celebrating? Well, it wouldn't be the sling library without cake so during our twice monthly library session we have cake to help us celebrate on Wednesday 10th October, we have a facebook competiton running and we will be 'carrying on traditions' by taking the sling library to the Parent and Child Event at Middlesbrough Football Club on Sunday 14th - the last day.
Wednesday 10th October - Sling Library 9.30-12 and 1-3
Saturday 13th October - Sling Walk organised by Slings North of Tyne fb group
Sunday 14th October - Parent and Child Event, Middlesbrough FC - Sling demo, advice and hire. Plus your chance to win a brand new Baba Sling in our little raffle.
All week - upload your best 'self portrait' arms length (the portrait of babywearers shot) to the sling library facebook page for your chance to win a small prize. Best photo will be chosen on Sunday.
