The time has come for me to close down Closer to You and say goodbye to the world of slings and carriers. Over the last 11 years of running Closer to You I am proud to have helped hundreds of families in Edinburgh to find a comfortable and safe carrier for their baby - it has been a privilege every time. For the 9 years that Closer to You was a online sling retailer, I also brought great slings and carriers to families around the UK and further afield.
If you are looking for sling help now, the Edinburgh area is brilliantly served by Lothian Sling Library https://www.facebook.com/lothianslinglibrary/ and Baby Bitz https://www.babybitz.co.uk. Slightly further afield, you can find support in Fife from Sling Sure http://www.slingsure.co.uk/ Elsewhere in Scotland, take a look at this great guide to sling support: http://www.babycarriersupportscotland.co.uk/
I will be shutting things down gradually over the next few weeks, and I wish every one of my past clients all the best for the future.
