    Story

    Coventry Slings aims to provide parents and carers with safe and unbiased advice and support to carry their children in slings.
    We have been running for three years, and reach an ever larger number of parents.
    We need to provide some extra demonstration dolls and some new slings to the collection available in the library to best meet the needs of our expanding clients. We aim to launch a new Free Stretchy Hire Scheme for babies under 8 weeks old, however we know that not everyone wants a stretchy wrap. With that in mind we are looking for £550 to cover

    - 2 new newborn demonstration dolls
    - 2 Ergo Adapt
    - 2 Mamaruga ZenSling
    - 2 Connecta
    - 1 Tula Free-To-Grow

    giving us a range of options to provide for families who don't feel comfortable with a stretchy

      We'd like to share some detail of the Newborn Hire Scheme currently being planned at Coventry Slings, and show you how these funds would be used! At Coventry Slings we want to provide a truly accessible service and also firmly believe that families with newborn babies can find a sling or carrier an invaluable tool.

      Thank you for your generous donations! We have already raised enough to buy one new carrier for the library, can we continue this and fund a whole lot more?

      Slings made life with a baby a joy where without them it would have been a nightmare, with our eldest especially. The service you are providing is so valuable to families, keep up the great work!
