Some real bargains now

My clearance page is pretty empty now but includes some ex-demo mei tais that are a real bargain and some very cheap wraps too:

And i have piled a load of stuff on e-bay too so some of that may end up going painfully cheap:

There's a mei tei and a wilkinet on eBay which would work... You know you can borrow mine if you get stuck. I'm hardly in a position to use it at the Mo x

Sorry - no toddler SSC. I do have a Scootababy sitting here in Taupe that i could let go for £72.00. The Mei Tais are really very generous though - i used Iona (nearly 4) for a demo in one last month and she fitted really well in it.

Not particularly, no - sorry. The lightest weight thing i have is the Calin Bleu cotton wrap, but that woudl just turn into a rather long soggy mess when taking it off!

Hello... I'm interested but kind of entering the unknown...would like an easy way to carry a 16 month old and hold my now 4 year olds hand and carry bags....!! Have you a suggestion re carrier/wrap, we haven't so far used apart from Bjorn baby carrier when she was much wee er! I like the idea of back carrying.
Cheers! :)

Well, there's a lot of choice put there, which can be confusing. Are you kind of thinking for shopping trips, or dog type walks, or short trips? And what kind of things do you like the look of? By that age back carries are great, they just take a bit of practice to be confident with, and you could learn quite quickly with a buckle carrier or a Mei Tai. Wrapping is also great, but o really would advise you get someone to show you how to get started with a wrap to get you confident. If you fancy more of a hip carry position, a ring sling or a Scootababy would do the job really well. I would be happy to chat through what might suit you if you want to call - my details are all on the website!
Have you heard of a slingmeet? It's where people get together and demonstrate different slings and often loan them out. Let me know where you are and I child help you find the nearest one to you.

Well, cotton might work but only if it was a very short length. Thanks anyway, and good luck with your clearance sale!
