Slingbabies - New Zealand's own baby sling website - non-profit, educational, to promote and support babywearing.

About Slingbabies

Hi there, my name is Jess.  I have been an ECE and Primary teacher, and  LLLeader. I am a lucky mum of 3 busy kids.

I formed the Slingbabies group in June 2007 in response to a huge gap in babywearing support in NZ.  The only information I could find was on international websites, and there was nothing in NZ for real-life sling support.  Over time I gathered a lot of knowledge about carriers and babywearing, so decided to create a real-life group to help other mums.  We have built up a sizeable sling library to lend carriers so people can 'try before they buy', as most good carriers are only available online and it isn't possible to trial them. 

This website is a natural continuance of the group, to have information relevant to NZ so people know what's available here.  



Now in 2017 Slingbabies is run by an excellent group of women, bringing babywearing help at a grassroots, non-profit level to Auckland parents. This difference is so important.

Slingbabies are not in it for money, just mum to mum knowledge passed on.
