Mamaruga are proud to support the Building Bonds Project

Building Bonds logo
The Building Bonds Project is designed to help families and their children to be close, especially in times of crisis, need or trouble. They believe that every child should have the chance to enjoy close and loving contact with their primary caregiver. A comfortable, well fitting hands-free carrier will enable these essential bonds to form, building a happy brain.

The Building Bonds Project fits and donates slings and carriers to families in health, social or financial difficulties, who are unable to source their own carrier easily. Their aim is to break down the barriers to babywearing, making carriers accessible to those who need them most.

Based in Sheffield, but they can help families further afield if they are referred by their local sling library or consultant.

They are committed to reducing their impact on the environment and welcome donations of carriers in excellent used condition, depending on current demand. Please get in touch with them directly to discuss any donations of carriers through their contact form at

Building Bonds are a CIC (Community Interest Company), staffed by volunteers and reliant on the kindness of others and grants and donations to be able to support families. You can donate to their Project via their crowfunder link, via Paypal, or via their GoldenGiving link.

Thank you to everyone who has already supported the project or will do in the future, your kindness enables them to help more families in need.

We are proud to provide our Zensling and Zebulo carriers to families in need, and are determined to make our planet a better place! Let’s do it together!

Proud to support Oxytosling from Cariad Babi

Cariad Babi offer free sling hire to vulnerable families suffering from the effects of Covid-19. They offer free hire for a 3 month period, absolutely free of charge. This includes postage where a family aren’t able to collect from The PoD.  A family may also seek support from their trained infant carrying consultant on using the sling, free of charge. Cariad Babi are committed to removing barriers to support.

Covid-19 has affected us all in one way or another. New parents, and parents to be, have found themselves without the support networks they had expected. We are hearing reports that Mothers are labouring alone, suffering with anxiety during pregnancy and are feeling isolated. Fathers are reporting difficulties with bonding with their child in such a short amount of time in hospitals. Parents with multiple children are expressing difficulties with juggling children at home, either with work, or with siblings. You can find out more about the project here.

We are happy to provide our Zensling and Zebulo carriers to families in need, and working with Kia at Cariad Babi allows us to do this.
