    Default Borrow a baby carrier

    Hi. I've heard that there are groups where I can borrow a baby carrier to see if my bub likes it? I've googled and can't find anything like that. Am I imagining that I can do this without buying one first? A link to somewhere might be good!!
    Ps I have a sling but am interested in an ergo now that my bub is getting bigger but they are expensive to buy especially if she hates it!

    I've got an ergo if you want to have a go with it. My DS doesn't like it he's too wormy. I'm on the GC too. Send me a PM if you're interested.

    Thanks ladies. I just found that hire for baby have carriers just not sure if they have an ergo. But I hired my pump from them so I will check it out on Monday.
    I don't know if bub will like it to be honest. She doesn't like the sling much.
    Thanks bubs n roses I will pm you.

    Search fb for "gold coast attachment parenting" and there's a group (it's the only one that comes up) that are really friendly and supportive - if you joined up and came to meets I'm sure someone would lend or let you play with any of their carriers.

    Otherwise I'm I'm Southport, I have an ergo sport if you just wanted to play with it try it on etc. Though I still use it so not willing to part with it. Otherwise I have a carrier that's for a small baby - it is a "crotch dangler" though - that I'd happily give away as it needs a home and I cbfed selling it.

    There's a few facebook groups - brissy meets happen all over at least once a week where you can go & meet other Mummas & try various wraps etc.
