Sling Consultant

A sling consultant is a person trained to show parents how to safely and comfortably wear their baby in a sling. Most, if not all, sling consultants have worn their own children so will have real life experience wearing babies to add to their professional training. At a consultation you can learn about a variety of different slings and carriers or focus on one particular sling. You will discuss what your needs are with your consultant before the consultation so you both are clear on what you would like to achieve during your consultation.

Babywearing Ireland (BWI) could not continue its current work in the babywearing community without the support, hard work and expertise of trained Babywearing Consultants practicing in Ireland. We are pleased to be able to list these Babywearing Consultants on our website.

All Babywearing Consultants listed here have trained with one of the following babywearing schools; Trageschule UK, Die Trageschule (Germany) or Slingababy . The consultants listed here should adhere to the Babywearing Consultant Code of Practice. If you have any concerns about a consultants practice please contact Babywearing Ireland.

What happens at a Sling Consultation?
While each consultant will have their own way of running a consultation session, a consultant should help you to feel safe and secure in your choice of sling or carrier.

During a sling consultation you can expect to learn some of the following things:

  • Learn about safe babywearing
  • Learn about the ergonomics of babywearing
  • Learn about different ways to safely carry your baby
  • Learn about the different types of slings available to you
  • Get a demonstration
  • Learn at least one method of wearing your baby from start to finish
  • Further your babywearing knowledge with a new carry or wearing technique
  • Be able to ask questions about slings and babywearing
