Can you borrow 1 from a sling library? A lot of the high street ones are cheaper but more uncomfortable so not worth it x

If you're on FB there's a couple of sling groups where you can pick up a pre loved one at quite a reasonable price. Or definitely try and borrow one from a sling library. I'd definitely recommend a connecta or a buckled Mai-tai for ease of use.

Thanks ladies, just googled my local sling library but is that what people use it for? Can I pay for hire for holidays only- would work out cheaper as I could hire a decent sling every time we go away rather than fork out for something I will only use a few times!

Can't comment on the sling library as I don't have any near me and not sure how they work but I know there's an online company who do hires and they were happy to hire for holidays. It's basically hiring to see if you like it, doesn't matter how you use it when you've got it, surely? I think it would be fine.
I also have a connecta which was great in holiday. Really easy to use for both me and H and packs up nice and neat.

I emailed them and they said that's fine so will go look Friday! Popcorn we are only going to Cornwall but its in the middle of nowhere with lots of walks!!

Ah sounds lovely, love the West country. We went to Devon last month and definitely got our money's worth out of the sling. Hope you find something that suits you.

Our local sling library lends out slings. It's great as you can try different ones to see what works for you. I love my Connecta think I paid around £45 for it from a hitcher but if you're not going to use it after the holiday I would definitely recommended hiring 1, good luck

I love it too popcorn and I'm thinking its wisest to try a sling rather than lugging the buggy about! Thanks blackkat, going to see Friday as I think I need advice even if I brought one as he is quite heavy now, think I will rent one and if I like it then will purchase at a later date particularly as you seem to get a good sell on price!
