Only Support and advice from our trained sling consultant(s) is to be followed. Shared experiences from other library users or untrained Volunteers may not conform to safety guidelines.
Always ask if you are unsure
When using a hired carrier your child’s safety is your responsibility. All slings in our library are extremely safe when used correctly, however misuse can cause injury to the wearer and/or child.
It is your responsibility to ensure that you are using the sling/s correctly and that your baby/ child is safe at all times when using the sling. Always familiarise yourself with the manufacturer's guidelines. If you can not locate these ask us immediately.
Always follow instructions carefully and check for signs of wear and tear so as not to put your child at risk.
Signing this agreement means you have checked and confirmed that the sling/s are in working order. Check all buckles, hems and seams ensuring that there are no tears, breaks, cracks or holes.
If any damage is discovered, stop using the sling immediately and contact us.
We suggest that, after familiarising yourself with the instructions given, you then practise using the sling with a doll/teddy or cushion/pillow so that you get used to the tying/fastening/adjusting methods. It is also sensible to have another adult present on the first couple of occasions you put your child in the sling.
There is an average charge of £3 per item per week (members 1.50). This is non returnable.
There is a £50 deposit for non members that will be returned to you on the safe return of the hired sling. Should the sling be lost/ damaged ) beyond normal wear and tear, the deposit will not be returned and you will be liable for the cost of the replacement.
Slings must be returned on time unless by prior agreement, It is your responsibility to keep a record of the date of return and ensure they are returned on time. Hire emails will be sent to the email you have provided, we do not take responsibility for your software filters and so these emails should not be relied upon.
A late fee of £1 per day will apply to unarranged late returns.
Please take good care of the sling and any accessories so that they can be used to help more parents in future. Please keep the sling away from anything which could permanently stain (oil, paint, ink etc) or damage it (scissors, Velcro, keys in your bag, fire etc).
Please return the sling in a clean, usable condition but do not launder the sling. If the sling becomes dirty please carefully spot clean using water and a soft cloth. If the sling is heavily soiled please contact us for advice as the cleaning instructions are restrictive and you may damage the sling if done incorrectly.
By signing this agreement you agree to these terms and conditions and consent to future contact.

Please familiarise yourself with the T.I.C.K.S guidance
Keep Baby’s airways clear at all times
Yes the most important thing is to keep babies airways clear at all times, Up right, chin off chest, face visible at all times, clear airways with free airflow. Keeping vigilant will ensure you are always able to do this. If you are under the influence of drink or drugs it is not appropriate for you to be carrying your child as you will not be able to keep vigilant. Do not carry while asleep as you again will be unable to stay vigilant of the child’s airways. Avoid horizontal or deep pouch carriers as they can restrict the air circulating to baby.
When dressing baby and yourself consider the situation, 1 layer of wrap or carrier = 1 layer of clothing. Remember to protect any uncovered limbs and their head from both the cold and the sun. Make sure you both keep hydrated.
Make sure you have a carrier that will support you and baby. If there is any damage contact the manufacturer for further guidance, If in doubt don’t use the carrier.
You may want to adapt your choice of carrier depending on the activity you plan to do. It is against the law to drive or cycle while carrying. Do not participate in any activity that has any aspect of danger or a chance you could fall, a good rule to stick to is if you wouldn't do it carrying in arms do not do it in a sling.
When you are carrying remember you are not the same shape you normally are, so take consideration when walking through door ways. Baby will also be able to reach items they may not have been able to reach before so it is important to also take this into consideration.
Familiarise yourself with the T.I.C.K.S Guidelines

On receiving your nappies
Follow the wash routine detailed below using your own detergent and on a 60 wash. The nappies are clean but it is important to use the detergent your baby is used to.
Caring for your nappies
Before weaning – put disposable liners in the bin and any reusable liners in the nappy bucket or wet bag along with the nappy.
After starting solids – flush any solid poo down the loo then put disposable liners in the bin and any reusable liners in the nappy bucket or wet bag along with the nappy.
Fasten any Velcro (either folded back onto laundry tabs or just do nappy up on the largest setting and turn inside out) before putting into the nappy bucket so you don’t need to touch it again later.
There is no need to soak your nappies.
How to wash
Your washing machine should be roughly ¾ full when dry. If you don’t have enough nappies you can add in any other small items to make up the load, e.g. muslins, dishcloths, t-towels, hand towels. If the load is not full enough the nappies may not clean as well as they should.
First rinse in cold water, use a rinse or short wash cycle with no detergent rather than a pre wash setting. Do not spin as it is important that the nappies get as much water as possible. Eco washes are not advised for this reason.
Next use the longest available wash on your machine (usually a cotton wash). Do not use an ECO setting. If an extra water setting is available on your machine then use this. Use a maximum spin speed of 1000rpm.
Always ensure that there are no soap suds left in the drum on the final washing rinse, if there are run another rinse.
You can wash on a lower heat, however, wash at 60 degrees if:
- baby is under 3 months;
- more than one baby is using the same nappies;
- for the 2 weeks after vaccinations ;
- if baby is unwell
- if baby has repeated rash or skin sensitivity.
Use the correct dose of non-bio powder for your machine and for hard water, where possible use powder and never use fabric softener or two in one.
Dry in the following locations in order of preference:
1. Outside on the line
2. Ceiling drying rack
3. Airing cupboard
4. In front of AGA or similar
5. Freestanding dryer
6. Near a radiator – do not put directly onto the radiator
Change every 2-4 hours during the day, depending on age of baby and how much they wet. Always change straight after a poo. Add extra boosters for approx. 12 hours overnight (unless they poo)
we look forward to seeing you soon & hearing about how you got on :)
