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.

RTE shoot of Sling and Dance Fitness Class: a great success

Sling and Dance exercise for mums

Thanks to everyone who came to the sling and dance fitness  class today to make it such a success for the RTE crew. We had a large, buzzing class full of mums with great slings and happy babies.  Both the cameraman and the director were full of praise for the class and the calming effect it had on the babies.  Hopefully that will come across in the programme itself.

It’s airing during the third week of November – I’ll post the exact time and day when I have the information.
