Welcome to Sling Spot

We are a small family business with a strong social purpose, focusing on helping parents and their children stay close. We pride ourselves on our personalised, expert service. We believe that families thrive when children are held close; it helps to build happy brains.

Sling Spot (and the sister service Sheffield Sling Surgery and Library) is run by Rosie Knowles, an international author and speaker on the subject of babywearing, and a team of experienced, trained staff. We love to carry our own children and want to help you love it too. We stock the best baby carriers and babywearing coats on the market. We will help you feel confident and safe together as you build happy brains. If you come to our Sling Spot shop, we’ll help 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!

In addition to our many buckle carriers, and wraparound slings for newborns (that we think are among the best baby carriers around) we have a range of babywearing coats to keep you and your little one snuggly whatever the weather.

We have jackets and fleeces and carrier covers too.

Of course, if you are escaping for some winter sun, we can help you with cooler carrier options such as the Solar Integra or the all-rounder Beco 8.

We have year round bargains in our sale shop.

Don’t forget that we offer free shipping within the UK for orders over £30 (and we ship to most of the world too).
