The baby room team at the Court House really enjoyed the opportunity to take part and experience Sling training with Anna from Bristol Sling Ladies – http://bristolslingladies.co.uk/
Different slings and different size dolls relating to different weights of ‘real’ babies were provided for us all to try. Anna gave the group a short talk and demonstration and then gave everyone ample time and opportunity to be able to try and experience the range of slings.
The team have chosen a carrier to trial in the baby room for the next six weeks and then, if everyone enjoys using it, we will buy our own for nursery use! Using a carrier is a fantastic way to comfort children who are settling or upset. It helps with the transition to nursery for those babies used to being carried at home. It’s also a great way to be able to include the non-walking babies in being in the garden if it’s too wet for them to sit or crawl around, or on trips.
Thank you Anna for inspiring our team.
