Service Description

Come along to ask a question about baby carriers, try one on, hire a baby carrier for 4 weeks or see a demonstration of the Scottish Baby Box Wrap at our Carrier Library Session. Here is some info about what to expect: Cost: £5 per family, which can go towards the price of a hire Hires: £20 for 4 weeks (£15 for you if you've paid to come in!) Please create a hire account on and add card info before attending :) The carrier teaching part of the sessions are run by me, Jess. In terms of staff - there's only me so you may have a little wait, but hopefully you'll get to meet other parents, get chance to buy a coffee or some lunch and still enjoy your time here while waiting. The Playtown staff are plentiful and on hand to answer all your non-carrier questions. Drop In Sessions are best suited to trying 1 thing. The time is split between all attendees, so won't be able to talk you through the 15 carriers you wanted to try. We do love familiar faces, and have some people come to every drop in session so they can work through their wanted list. Alternatively you can book an hour long 121 appointment - we can't promise all 15 carriers there but we can promise undivided attention - email me to book a 121. At these sessions we are unable to teach back carrying & may point other advance requests to a 121. Choosing a carrier is about what works for you and your baby. We will want to make sure your baby can breathe in your chosen carrier, that it fits and supports them well, and that they won't be liable to overheating - other than that the choice is yours. Carriers that clip on, Carriers that Tie on, Long Wraps, Ring Slings, Bring your own carrier, or even if you don't want to carry but fancied the company - you're more than welcome. We also love demonstrating the Baby Box Wrap. Playtown Venue: The venue has no parking but there is a carpark near the Banks of Ury that costs £1 for 2 hours and is a 30 second walk away. They ask us to limit the number of prams so only bring if necessary. It's also a shoes off or a wear shoe covers venue. Tea and Coffee costs around £2-3 and there are also lunch options available. FREE SPACES We are committed to baby carrying being accessible to all and so set aside free spaces at each class. If you would love to come but the cost is too much - please get in touch and let us know you'd like a free space. We can also help with either free hires, and with referrals to the Building Bonds Project.
