Lizzy wearing her baby daughter in a woven wrap.Hi I’m Lizzy, and I have recently taken over the running of Chester Sling Library!

I started babywearing after the birth of my daughter Sophie in 2015, carrying her in a stretchy wrap for much of the first few months. I visited Chester Sling Library as a customer when she was around three months old and started helping as a volunteer shortly after. In early 2017 I trained as a Babywearing Peer Supporter with Born to Carry and have continued to support parents carry their babies and children comfortably and safely through the sling library ever since.

In March 2020 I took over the library and plan to train as an Infant Carrying Consultant shortly. I’m also expecting my second child this year and am looking forward to babywearing again myself!
