Slings on a budget

The slings that YSL stocks range in rrp from around £35 right the way up to £155. If you let us know your budget we are very happy to stay within this when trying different options.

So what happens if what you want to buy is outside your budget?
As a library customer you can access discount codes for 5-10% off with many independent U.K. based sling retailers. Please contact us for details. Several such sites also have a bargain corner or sales area which are well worth checking out.

Preloved: Many of the slings we stock have been on the market in some shape or form for many years and easily survive one or two babies in great condition. 
There are many Facebook FSOT groups including brand specific pages, gigantic baby-wearing groups, local page Slings of York and of course the local parenting groups. All can be great places to find what you want to buy. Doing a bit of research on your chosen carrier and carefully inspecting images can help you to check the condition is as you would wish, and help avoid fakes. We’d recommend always paying “Goods and Services” just in case!

A great alternative option for peace of mind is a company called Little Possums and Little Possums Preloved who retail new and preloved slings. It’s great to know the preloved slings have been checked over by experts and the company are very forward thinking, being among the first to offer payment plans on all the slings they retail.

If a purchase is beyond your reach, please have a chat to us at YSL. We have have a small stash of retired slings waiting in the wings that are perfectly usable, but have cosmetic defects, or are obsolete. If you are interested just let us know! We currently have one way stretchy wraps, tie on carriers and both baby and toddler buckles available.
