Southampton Sling Meet is run by a team of volunteers. Gemma is a Babywearing Consultant having attended training with Slingababy, a UK Babywearing School. We are fortunate to be supported at meets by other volunteers who are themselves users of baby carriers.

We currently meet twice a month at St Paul's Church 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 month or three months. Our charges are increasing from January 2019 to £6 for a month and £15 for three months. We ask that you bring proof of address as a deposit to cover the cost of the carrier (e.g. a valid driving licence with your current address on).


A refundable £15 deposit is required for the free stretchy wrap hire - this can be paid in cash, PayPal or bank transfer.
