Welcome to our hire service where you can try out some of our baby carriers before you buy. 

You can hire 1, 2 or 3 slings at the same time. We may have a waiting list for some slings at some times so you can preorder and we will let you know when they are back in stock. You will be responsible for posting the sling/s back to us but if you decide to order something from us, we can arrange a FREE pick up when delivering your order.

The cost includes delivery and rental for 2 weeks hire plus a fully refundable deposit as follows:

1 sling €15 + €85 deposit

The Terms:

* The sling/s will be sent to you clean and ready to use and we expect to receive it back in the same condition.

* Full instructions are available with each sling.

* At the end of the 2 weeks, you will be responsible for the postage costs back to Earth Mother. If you decide to go ahead and purchase a sling, we will pick the hire one up FREE when we deliver the new one.

* If the sling does not arrive back in a reasonable time after the due date, we reserve the right to hold some or all of the deposit.

* If the sling does not arrive back in a reasonable condition, we reserve the right to charge for some or all of it from the deposit.

Benefits of sling wearing for you and your baby:

*Promotes a feeling of well-being and safety for your baby.

*Gives you freedom of movement outside and at home.

*Keeps your hands free for everyday tasks.

*Simple, safe and ergonomically designed to carry your child.

*Your baby will be able to discover the world around them from the safety of being cuddled up to their mother or father.

*The heat, smell and sound of the parents beating heart is very soothing for the child.

*When on the move, the infant is gently rocked and all his senses are stimulated naturally (sight, smell, hearing, touch, balance).

*Trains your baby's sense of balance.

*The spread position of the legs in the sling has a positive effect on the development of the hips.

*Helps Dads build a stronger bond with their baby.

We use GLS Couriers who usually provide next day courier delivery from Monday to Friday. Delays can sometimes occur beyond our control so we advise you to always include postcode if you live in a rural area and always return missed calls if you are out and about on the day of delivery. Usually the driver can leave the order with a neighbour or behind the fence etc on your instructions. Delivery cost is €4.50 nationwide for up to 20kgs. You can check your parcel through your unique tracking number anytime at: GLS Track & Trace.

Midday is our cut off for next day delivery but sometimes we can still include your order after this time. 

You can also choose to have your order delivered by An Post Parcel Post for €5.95 up to 10kg (the advantage of this is it can be left at the local sorting office for you to pick up at your convenience if you know you aren't going to be home for your delivery) or regular post for small items.

We'll also pay the return shipping costs if the return is a result of our error (you received an incorrect or defective item, etc.).

You should expect to receive your refund within one week of giving your package to the return shipper, however, in many cases you will receive a refund more quickly. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (2 to 4 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (1 to 2 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days).

Try before you buy! Great service.

I contacted Siobhan for some advice before placing my order. Siobhan was very helpful and dispatched the two carriers I had opted to try. It was brilliant that we had two to try and I am so glad we availed of the hire. We would have certainly ended up buying the wrong sling had we tried them in a store with baby.

Sling hire
Sunday, 13 September 2015  | 

I contacted Siobhan for some advice about buckle slings. I hired both an Ergo and Boba carrier from her. I returned the sling in person and Siobhan showed me correct positioning and gave some great tips for babywearing. She also helped me with a cloth sling I have. Great to deal with, very helpful and knowledgeable and great products.
