Welcome to Sling Spot

We are a small family business with a strong social purpose, focusing on helping parents and their children stay close. Sling Spot (and the sister service Sheffield Sling Surgery and Library) is run by Rosie Knowles and a team of experienced, trained staff. We love to carry our own children and want to help you love it too; and feel confident and safe together. If you come to our shop, we’ll fit you and your baby into a carrier, show you how to use it, and welcome you into the Sheffield sling community! New parents may find our 4th Trimester service very helpful. You won’t find this expert service anywhere else.

If you’re out of town we offer speedy shipping and are always ready to answer your queries or make suggestions. email us with your queries!

Rosie is an international author and speaker on the subject of babywearing and why it is so valuable, you can read a little more about the benefits of carrying children here.


With winter well and truly underway, parents and children need to keep warm and dry; our babywearing coat range is restocked frequently. Read more about the options we stock here.

Babywearing a newborn can be a very special bonding experience; read our guide to newborn carrying here. We have soft Caboo carriers and strokable stretchy wraps, as well as very versatile woven wraps that will last for years. The Mamaruga ZenSlings will combine the snuggle of a stretchy with the ease of the buckle and will carry till toddlerhood.

The Integra and Sleepy Nico buckle carriers as well as more structured options like the Tula and Ergobaby and Beco ranges are popular all year round for front and back carries. We have a range of toddler and preschool carriers for older children or those with extra needs, and twin carriers too! We have Meh Dai and half buckle carriers for those who want the wrap feel but the structured style.

We're keen to help families to carry in all weathers so we have plenty of options. Read our guide to babywearing clothing here. Fleece hoodies, babywearing jackets, coats and sling covers all help to manage temperatures, and babies's heads can be kept warm in our children's hood range.  We love our Blade and Rose leggings collection too! Something for everyone!
