Who We Are
We are volunteer moms & professionals who are passionate about slings & about helping parents; which is really a wonderful combination. Our passion for slings brought us here through different avenues, so we offer different approaches to babywearing & different expertise, but the same level of safety & caring touch that has been a standard of the OSL since its creation. The Oslo Sling Library is now part of The Milk & Oil Company. While merging the library with TM&O Co for administrative & management purposes, the library will remain independent & will run as usual, with meet-ups, low cost rentals & accessible options for support, just as when it was created.
**All payments & invoicing are now managed through The Milk & Oil Co. online or by Vipps #613290. If you need to make a payment with card or PayPal you will be able to do so through the electronic invoice that will follow your booking, rental or consult. There is no Oslo Sling Library Vipps Account.
What We Do
The Oslo Sling Library holds a collection of over 100 slings & carriers which we use to teach parents technique, skills & confidence in babywearing while at the same time, renting them out for parents to test drive options before buying.
We organize bi-monthly meets & workshops in Oslo where parents come, learn about options, try on the slings or simply spend time with other parents for social contact & support. Our consultants are all mothers who have been there & know the difficulties that come with having small babies or feisty toddlers; so we help with slings, but we also offer a safe space for (new) parents to get some much needed tlc.

"I began working as a consultant because babywearing saved me in the early stages of motherhood in so many ways. Carrying for safety & comfort was one, finding community among fellow mothers was another. The OSL has given me warmth & fulfillment beyond anything I expected. Thank you to Lizzy & Magz, the original founders, for starting this space. Thank you to Ruth & Johanna for bringing me into the team when they did & for trusting me to take over this work for Oslo & its parents."
