About Me & The Library

I'm Lindsay,  I live on the Surrey/Hampshire border with my 3 kids and a variety of small (and large!) beasts.

 

I've used slings since 2011. When my second child was born, I used a narrow based carrier to make the school run simpler. This served us reasonably well until my shoulders started objecting. A friend recommended a meh dai carrier and I found it to be a significant improvement. It wasn't long before I had established a stash of carriers and a deep affection for wearing my baby close to me.

 

In 2014 I attended the 4 day Slingababy Consultant course. I immediately started a non-profit sling library despite having no idea how to run it or what I should be stocking. I had two small bags of carriers and two demo dolls (Ron and Hermione). I couldn't afford to hire a venue so I would turn up once a month at pubs in Ash Vale and Farncombe. 

These days the library has expanded beyond anything I imagined. We have two beautiful venues in Farnham and Godalming, and are currently hosting sessions every week. I have a whole tribe of volunteers including trained peer supporters plus volunteers who serve tea and coffee with a lavish hand and help with the paperwork. Ron and Hermione have been joined by Neville, Ginny and Luna.
