Thames Valley Sling Babies is an informal group for carers of young children who want to share their experience about using soft fabric carriers (slings) to hold or transport their babies and toddlers in comfort, safety or convenience.  We are a not-for-profit organisation run entirely by volunteers.

We currently hold Slingmeets monthly at a child-friendly and accessible venue in the West Reading.

  • Battle Library, 420 Oxford Road, Reading RG30 1EE on the 3rd Thursday at 11.30am

Please check our Slingmeet page for more details.

There are also a great many other, excellent, slingmeets in the Berkshire area, NCT run meets in Reading and Wokingham, there’s a great independent meet in Bracknell, one in Newbury and one in Thatcham. Not to mention the original Oxford Slingmeet, which is still going strong.
