Informal Sling Meet Meath. All welcome

sling meet Dublin 15

1/10/14 at my house in Dunboyne, Co. Meath

sling meet is like a coffee morning with other parents/ mums-to-be, but everyone brings their slings along, and there is a babywearing consultant present with a stock of slings for you to try.   If you have a new baby and you are interested in buying a sling but don’t know where to start, this meet-up is for you!  It’s also great for parents of older babies who are looking for some new ideas with e.g. back carries or woven wraps, or moving from a regular size carrier to a toddler or pre-school carrier.

I also run a sling library, so all the slings below are available to rent:  €7.50 per sling for two weeks.  This way you can try them and see what suits you best before you go out and buy one.

Admission:  free

There’s no need to book.  Just come along.

Sling Meet Details

The sling meets take place at my house  on the first Wednesday of the month from 2-4pm.
Address:  The Bungalow, Castlefarm, Dunboyne, Co. Meath.  Google map.  The house is in a small country lane, almost opposite a small factory for the Dunboyne Reel Factory.  For printable directions, email Hilary.

Mum and Baby Fitness Classes – last one on 20/10/14

Mum and baby fitness classes

This class will be changing to post-natal pilates on 3/11/14.

My own pregnancy is starting to slow me down, and as I haven’t been able to find an instructor to cover the class, I am handing over to Sinead Nic Clamha who will start post-natal pilates for the same time-slot.  The schedule for the next few weeks is as follows:

Monday 20/10/14 – mum and baby fitness (last)

Monday 27/10/14 – bank holiday, no class

Monday 3/11/14 – free taster class in post-natal pilates.  Just drop in (with your baby) and see how much you like it!

Monday 10/11/14 – four-week post-natal pilates course starts.

Class Details

Mondays at 11am
Castleknock Community Centre, Laurel Lodge Road, Dublin 15
