We offer two kit types, both at £15 per month, plus a £50 deposit: the Birth to Potty kit for babies weighing 10lb onwards, and the Newborn kit for smaller babies.  Each kit contains a minimum of 20 nappies, wraps, liners, wet bag and lidded nappy bucket (if required).

Drop-in groups

We run several drop-in groups in Stockport and Cheshire – all feature sensible advice, friendly faces, and the sling library. Most of our events operate on a ‘pay what you can’ basis, with a minimum suggested donation of £2 per person.

Fourth Trimester

For expectant and new parents, we welcome babies up to around 5 months. Each month we invite a guest speaker and discuss a particular topic. We also provide demos and support on slings for this stage of your baby’s development.


We work with local organisations that help families, to provide a signposting and referral service. If you are struggling, please get in touch and we will help you to find the right support.
