This is particularly prevalent for first time parents! And whilst lots of this advice can be with the best of intentions and well meaning it can very quickly become confusing especially when receiving conflicting advice ... Read more

The sling libraries community has been alerted to this advert having a heavy campaign on Facebook at the moment so is likely To come Up in sponsored adverts for people who have children or who are expecting.

This “bag type” sling is very unsafe! Laying a baby down in this cradle position can force baby’s chin towards their chest and lead to a restricted airway - as baby is not against parent this can very easily go unnoticed by the wearer.

The only image that is safe here is the last older baby who is sitting - however this wouldn’t be a hands free carry.

Unfortunately the low price and heavy marketing can be temptation to new parents. It’s very frustrating ☹️ 8 years ago I owned a stretchy wrap but the first photos of My daughter in a sling was of her in this cradle
Position too because I knew no different.

So the best thing we can do to combat this is education! And if anyone knows of new parents buying these types of slings to point them in the direction of our drop in sessions for a free fit check - we can very easily
Demonstrate safety and alternatives in person and we are very used to having these conversations

I went to the website and it seems this product has been removed, however they are selling a bottle propping cushion 😭 I've left a review, if anyone else could do the same.

I have a babasling. I follow all the instructions so babies head is not on the sling etc. And I always keep one hand on her. Are these safe to use?

This makes me so sad. I was in an online birth group when I had my eldest nearly 9 years ago. One of the mummies newborn died in one of these carriers. Absolutely heartbreaking.

So true I did lots of research into wraps and however comfortable the baby looks I would never use this style as they are so dangerous x

Wow I had one of these years ago and kept thinking I was doing it wrong because baby looked so uncomfortable and awkward so never really got any use out of it

Sheruh have removed this product from their website after someone gave it a bad review.

I used a sling like this for four of mine. I had no idea it could be unsafe. Leaves me feeling quite sick.

Chiara Evans heads up.

Happy valentines- let the oxytocin flow!❤️LOVE❤️ This is Oxytocin, the hormone of love. This is what You (and they) secrete when you cuddle your child, breastfeed, bedshare and give birth. It helps you to bond and it also acts as a pain reliever. This Valentines Day, snuggle up with those you love most and revel in the oxytocin. It’s *never* a bad habit, it’s chemistry 😉 For more about oxytocin: https://www.livescience.com/42198-what-is-oxytocin.html ... See MoreSee Less

A reminder that we will be at Scunthorpe Café INDIEpendent tomorrow between 11-1.

Lots of slings to try, hire and purchase. Come and meet our friendly experienced team of volunteers and enjoy a coffee with us too (maybe even a naughty slice of cake?! )

We will be showcasing the Scootababy carrier and have plenty to hire out from the session too. I’ll be doing a group demonstration at the start of the session so be sure to arrive early and head to the children’s area to see how these amazingly comfortable and super super easy carriers work.
