When our meet ups got started a lending library was a dream of the future. Those of us who came to help had our carriers that we brought along and between a few of us, we had everything covered – wraps, ring slings, pouches, mei tais, and buckle carriers. After meeting regularly and building a babywearing community, both in person and online, we all agreed that it would be super helpful to have a basic library of carriers to lend out. We posted to see if anyone had something they would donate to help us get started.
These were our first donations!
It wasn’t a lot, but some basics were there and more importantly, it was a start! We worked hard over the next few months. We fundraised and solicited donations. Through the generosity of our mamas and some amazing companies, we finally had a great starting lending library.
Here it is!
A one year membership is just $25 and this allows you to check out one carrier each month. It’s a great way to try things before buying – see what’s comfortable and what your baby loves.
We have plans to grow this library even bigger, so if you have something laying around you don’t use please consider donating it. If you make a donation you get your first year’s membership FREE! If you know companies that donate or offer lending library discounts, please let us know! And if you see Facebook giveaways tag us and enter our group – we have BIG plans to keep on growing so we can help as many people as possible safely wear their babies!
