About Us

Dumfries Sling Library was formally established in 2012 although the idea to let other parents in the area try slings and show them how to use them safely was born in August 2011. We are now part of Bump, Baby & Beyond, a local registered charity supporting new parents and their families on their journey through the early years or parenthood.


Our aims are simple ...

  • promote the benefits of babywearing

  • offer an affordable and accessible library loan service to meet your needs

  • bring together babywearers to share tips and support each other

  • provide the opportunity to try different types of slings in a safe environment, with trained peer supporters and babywearing consultants


The library is run entirely on a volunteer basis, by an experienced and fully qualified Babywearing Consultant and a team of Peer Supporters. 


We are always looking for more people to join our team. If you are interested in getting involved, do get in touch!
