These are our recommended products during the pandemic; lightweight carriers that are easy to wash/wipe down, and very simple to use.

We at Sling Spot pride ourselves on our personalised, expert service and our choice of comfortable and long lasting buckle carriers, wraparound slings and babywearing coats of high quality.

We believe that families thrive when children are held close; it helps to build happy brains. We’re delighted to have been shortlisted for several small business awards in our few years of running, and for Sling Spot to be featured as one of the 2019 Small Business Saturday UK winners at the House of Lords.

Summer slings

Even in the warmth of sunny days, you can still enjoy the benefits of carrying your little one, as we have some excellent choices for the warmer weather. Newborns will enjoy the breathable wraparound cuddles of our lightweight stretchy wraps and mesh Close Caboos, and we stock a wide range of buckle carriers designed to remain cool; such as the ever-popular Solar Integra, Beco Cool, Izmi Breeze and Tula Coast/Ergo Mesh ranges. We also stock the ultra light MiniSling, the coolest carrier around, as well as a range of single layer ring slings.

See all our Sling Spot summer slings here! and if you are looking for ways to protect your child from the sun; we have a super collection of sun hats and sunglasses.

We can help you decide which carrier is right for your family, drop in and see us (when we are open – currently we are closed to walk ins due to the social distancing guidance from the Government) or book a short online Zoom session!
