Last Slingmeet Meeting

Dear Mothers

Do you have a baby that loves being held and doesn’t like to be on the pram, cot, car seat, etc? Would you like to get some work done in the house while responding to your child needs? Do you find difficult to attend your older children while looking after your little one?

Many mothers find the use of a sling/baby carrier the perfect solution. But, have you ever wanted to use one and didn’t know how? How about a place where you can try different types before buying your own?

Would you like to learn how to make your own?

Slingmeet is a group for parents, or parent’s-to-be, to learn and share about their experience in baby slings or baby carriers.


NAME: Slingmeet Tokyo

WHEN: Friday, 15th March, from 10 am to 12. LAST MEETING!!!

WHERE: Roppongi area. If you wish to attend, please contact me at and I will send the full address.

Best regards
