Sling Rental program

Looking to try a sling before you buy it? Need a specific type of carrier for vacation? Have friends or family visiting who would benefit from a sling to carry their little one while they see the local sights? Our sling rental program is for you!

Nearly all the carriers we sell are available for rental for up to three weeks. We have dedicated rental slings and they are available on a first-come, first-served basis. These are washed and checked for safety after each use.

To take part:

  • we take your credit card information so we can recoup the cost if you run away with the carrier, never to be seen again.
  • we charge your card for the amount of time you’d like to rent the carrier for ($20 for the first week, $10 for the second week).
  • you take the carrier and use it as needed.
  • we will give you a coupon for 10% off the purchase of any new carrier upon the (punctual) return of your rented sling (discount is limited to one carrier).

Frequently Asked Questions

What if I return the carrier in the first week and have paid for two weeks?

We will refund the amount for the second week.

Due to extenuating circumstances, I’m unable to return the carrier by the due date – what now?

If the carrier is not returned by the end of business hours on the date due, your card will be charged a $10 late fee. If the carrier is not returned by the beginning of the fourth week, your card will be charged the difference between what you have already paid and the full cost of the carrier (90% of retail price). You will now own the sling. You can not exchange this sling for another colour or for a refund.

If you know that you will be a day or less late returning the carrier, please call us and let us know – we understand that life (especially with a baby!) can be crazy, and we’re willing to cut you some slack. We will also call at the beginning of the day on the date the carrier is due to remind you!

What if I get a stain on my rental sling?

Stains will be assessed on a case-by-case basis. In most cases, typical stains for a baby carrier (spit-up, breastmilk, food) can be treated on our end and will be pardoned. More serious stains may result in a full charge for the carrier; in this case you will be the proud new owner of a stained sling!
