A pack of encouraging affirmation cards – these include phrases that will encourage and  support new parents as they transition into parent-hood as well as keeping parents going who are welcoming another child into their family.

The kit also contains a pack of the well loved Fourth Trimester,  Build a Happy Brain, Skin to Skin Matters and Why Carrying Matters postcards  These can be used to remind new parents that it is all worth it, or send to a friend as an encouragement.

We have helped you by listing some of our top newborn slings/carriers. You can see them in the drop down menu.

There are many different types of slings and we all have personal preferences. You may find our guide to carrying helpful to decide what type of sling would be suitable. Alternatively you can opt to include a voucher, the amount is of your choosing, meaning that the recipient can use it towards any item/s from our website.

There is the option to add one of three different appointment lengths available;

  • 10 minute fit check –  either in person or online, with one of our highly trained members of staff, to check that you are wearing your new carrier safety and comfortably. A 10 minute fit check comes free with every purchase from us!
  • 30 minute appointment – This is the perfect amount of time to learn how to use a new carrier and to help you get to grips with how to put your baby in it safely and confidently.
  • 1 hour consultation – This would be with one of our highly trained consultants. The focus of the appointment is completely up to the client. We can provide an introduction to carrying a newborn, learn how to use a new carrier confidently and cover essential safety concerns, biomechanics of body positioning, plus much more.

At the point of purchase you will pay for the foundation box only – this does not include a carrier or an extended appointment. You will be contacted to finalise the finer details of any build options selected.
