About Us

We are a team of experienced babywearers, who founded Manchester's first community babywearing group in 2006. Initially known as Greater Manchester Nino, then Manchester Slingmeet, we became Slinging In The Rain in 2008.

We offer a comprehensive sling library, ideal for those wanting to try out different slings before buying.

The group won a Barclays/ALL FM Community Award in 2008, for the service it provides to parents and children.

The team runs babywearing workshops, and gives sling demonstrations and talks to groups, which have included NHS breastfeeding groups, community groups and midwifery students at the University of Manchester.
