Helping Parents Choose and Safely Use Baby Carriers
Capital Region Sling Babies is a nonprofit, all volunteer run organization that helps parents choose and safely use baby carriers and slings. We do not sell slings or any type of baby carrier. We do, however, have a lending library filled with a large variety of carriers/slings that members can check out and try. We also offer many educational materials showing proper techniques that can be checked out.
Sling Babies holds meetings once a month to help and educate local parents. Our meetings are held at local libraries and centers around the Capital Region. We also hold “sling outs” at various places where parents can come and wear their babies. Check our calendar to find out about our next meeting.
You can also join the discussion on Facebook to meet other babywearing parents and receive quick answers to your questions regarding babywearing or carriers. This is a great place to pose other questions about attachment parenting and green living. Topics on the forum range from choosing a baby carrier to cloth diapering.
Have you received a carrier that you do not know how to use?
Do you have questions about a certain baby carrier?
Are you looking to meet other parents with like-minded parenting styles?
Then attend our meetings, have some fun and learn more and better ways to keep your baby happy.
