More Than Cake

Eastbourne Town Centre – at More Than Cake

The sling library at More Than Cake is a drop-in session and social event. Come and browse, and try on slings and baby carriers – and catch up with the girls. There’s a lovely little toddler play area, and comfy sofas to hang out on. So bring your coffee and cake upstairs and relax for an hour or 2. Even if you don’t have a slings problem that needs fixing!

Tiffany will be there to guide you towards suitable carriers, and help you with positioning and comfort. She can also help troubleshoot your own carrier if you already have one but are finding it difficult to get just right. She is a Slingababy trained slings consultant, and will have demo dolls there for you to use when real babies are sleeping, or just don’t want to go into a sling.

Why do you need a baby carrier? – Carrying your baby in a sling has so many benefits, for them and for you. In the early weeks and months, it creates a fantastic bond. As they develop and grow older into toddlerhood, it can provide the comfort of being ‘home’ while out and about in a big, busy and confusing world.

Your little one will love your cuddles, and the gentle movement, feeling safe and secure and warm, just like being in mum’s tum! A carried baby will cry less, and be less stressed, helping your baby to relax and sleep well. Carrying them close can help regulate body temperature, breathing and heart-rate. It can help with colic and reflux. Not only that, it can help with breastfeeding, improve your own immune system, and reduce your own stress. And of course you can go for walks on the beach or on the Downs where buggies won’t go, or push a trolley round the supermarket, or simply get yourself a cup of tea.

The venue is in the town centre, close to the seafront. There is metered parking on Carlisle Road, some free parking a few minutes walk away around Eastbourne College and Lower Meads area.

Marie makes the most amazing cakes! So why not stop and have a coffee/snack/lunch while you’re here!

Sling hire is free for sling library members (£15/month) or £3 – £6 a week for on-the-spot hires plus a deposit for non-members.
