Any local baby-wearers?

Hi everyone.

I need some assistance re: baby-wearing. I didn't wear my first baby (now 13 months) but I am planning on wearing her little brother (due December). Only problem is that I haven't got a clue when it comes to slings. I tried with baby #1 and never got the hang of it. I'd like to find a good sling for breastfeeding. I'm also concerned about safety (suffocating).

Are there any babywearers in the Newcastle area who would like to meet for a coffee and to show me the ropes? brew

hey, there's a sling library just opened in Durham, is that any help to you? If not I'd be happy to meet for a cuppa sometime. This site has a local babywearing section, you have to register first. I've never made it to a meet but I'd love to.

Hope that helps. Feel free to inbox me.
