3:40 Library closes for volunteers to attend an education session.
We will have a multitude of slings at the Wear A Hug Fair for you to try before you head into the vendor area to buy! Our volunteers will be there to help you find something that will work for you and your baby, or help you try something new that you’ve always been curious about! All major sling types will be represented: woven wraps, stretchy wraps, ring slings, meh dai, onbuhimo, half buckle, and soft structured carriers.
Among the slings we will have in the library are those generously donated by the following manufacturers that will then be distributed to the local and national postal libraries following the fair:
2x Didyclick by Didymos
2x woven wraps by Didymos
Stretchy Wraps by Love Radius
Tula Explore Coast
Tula Free To Grow
Tula Half Buckle
Tula toddler size
Tula standard size
… with more to come!
Thank you so very much to these companies for supporting the work of Babywearing Ireland in making safe and ergonomic babywearing accessible to everyone. We greatly appreciate your generosity!
Please note there will not be any sling rentals done or returns accepted on the day of the event. Please post rented slings back to the national library per instructions or return to the local library in which the sling was rented.
The library will be a place for demo and try on purposes only. Volunteers will not be able to give one on one instruction or lengthy fit assistance during busy periods. If you require one on one attention, please book a mini-consult with one of our sling vendors in the expo area.
