We are a small family business based in Sheffield, in the UK.

Sling Spot grew out of the Sheffield Sling Surgery and Library, when we realised that many of our visitors wanted to buy the carriers they had rented and enjoyed so much. Rob and Rosie run these services, alongside caring for their young children. Rosie is also a practising GP in Sheffield, and they are supported by a committed team of volunteers.

Dr Rosie Knowles (Carrying Matters) is one of the best known sling and carrier educators in the UK, the author of the book Why Babywearing Matters, and an advocate for the role of slings in building strong family bonds and promoting secure attachment. You can follow her here on Facebook.

Rob and the rest of the Sling Spot team work behind the scenes and in the shop to help families. Many are trained consultants or peer supporters and will be able to offer you quality, independent support.

We stock items that we know work well for families; those with the highest quality and the greatest comfort for parents and children as well as excellent value for money. We pride ourselves on our customer service; we will answer your queries and help you to find the carrier best suited to your needs.
