Every Friday from 11am-1pm.
The drop in is free to attend with no booking required, for those intending to hire or purchase, or for a brief safety check of a sling you are wearing.
We offer expert advice and support in how to choose and use your sling or carrier. We bring a wide range of slings and carriers in a choice of popular designs available to try out, before hiring your favourites, purchasing from the smaller selection of new slings we have with us, or from the wider online selection to collect the next day.
Pop your name on our list, and you'll be seen on a roughly first come first served basis, but may be grouped with other parents for demos of the same types of sling. Come prepared to spend a little time, and feel free to eat, drink, feed your baby and chat to other parents whilst you wait.
Bookable 1:1 appointments are available every Friday from 1-3pm and are recommended if you'd like to:
Bring along a sling you already own for some advice

Our evening workshop at The Half Moon is suitable for expectant, new or experienced parents alike. Perfect for working parents, our workshop will give a focused time for you to understand the differences between the slings on the market and guide you towards the right sling for your needs. We will explain how to be sure you and your little one are safe and comfortable and give hands on help to try one or two of our recommended options, or to fit a sling you already own. After the workshop, there will be time to hire or purchase any sling that you would like to take home.
Please pre-book to attend. £12 for one adult / £8 for an additional adult. Bring as many babies as you like!
This workshop also runs on a weekend morning in East Dulwich.
We bring a small selection of our most popular new slings to purchase to every pop-up and workshop, with our full range available in our online shop. If you know what you'd like, you can purchase in advance from our full range online and choose 'click & collect' to pick up your new sling from the pop-up.
Alternatively, if we don't have a new version of the sling you'd like with us, you can purchase and receive by post or collect from our out of hours box, from the following day.
