Babywearing Nelson

The aim of Babywearing Nelson is to provide a sling library so people can come to try and hire different baby carriers they are curious about, or are considering buying. Or to bring along their own carrier if they need some help.
Carriers are hired out at our monthly meets. Please check our events page for our next meeting.
We currently hold our meetings every third Saturday, 10am at Victory Community Centre, Nelson.
