Baby Carrier and Sling Storage Solutions

I have a pretty small stash by babywearing addict standards – more than 20, but not by much. Still, it would be nice to have a better storage solution than bags in the spare cupboard, or leaving them lying around the house and car. The keys to sling storage are holding in straps that want to escape, and visibility. I don’t want to be opening drawers at random when I’m searching for a specific sling in a hurry, and I tend to forget I have other beautiful slings when I can’t see them.

Here’s some ideas for small storage solutions to go in the spare cupboard:

Small Storage

Left: Clear storage bins from IKEA – the angled lid at the front means you can reach in and grab slings when the containers are stacked on top of each other.

Middle: Storage boxes with clear windows on the front from IKEA – the only downside is that I have different sling types that are very similar colours (eg green ring slings and green mei tais, or blue long wraps and blue shortie wraps).

Right: Hanging storage from IKEA – hang it in the wardrobe where sticky toddler hands can’t easily rearrange your wraps.

And if I had the budget, here’s some ideas for larger storage furniture pieces:

Furniture for storage

Left: Glass-front cabinet from IKEA

Middle: Shelves from Fantastic Furniture – great for storing carriers in the kids bedroom, and you can write on the front what’s inside

Right: Ladder shelf from IKEA – you could also use an actual ladder – shock! Yes, it is possible to use things for something other than their originally intended purpose, like babywearers who co-opt tablecloths as shortie wraps…

Lockable cabinet

And finally, a lockable cabinet for those who are lucky enough to have a stash that includes a long wrap handwoven on a hundred year old loom in Eastern Europe. If you’ve spent your budget on slings and can’t stretch it to the IKEA version shown above, you can pick up a cheaper, boring grey version from the ex-government warehouse and paint it in whatever shade of enamel rocks your boat.

So what do you like? Or do you already have your own perfect sling storage solution?

About emmadavidson

An addict who started dealing to support my habit, I have been using baby slings and carriers for a few years now. My children (Sophia, born 2004; Jools, born 2005; Billy, born 2007) are happy to be lugged around town in mei tais, ring slings, soft structured carriers, and occasionally a tablecloth.

    Those that don’t live in the car or the one or two lying around in use, are in the nanna trolly near the front – ready for when we need to spring into action against those post-apocalyptic zombie invasions. 😀

    I think if I had them displayed/stored so they were all visible DH would have heart failure at the extent of my stash……

  2. Mel says:

    I love the ladder idea, but I fear my uber-minimalist spouse would disagree…;)
    I do have to move beyond my current ‘random stash piles through the house’ system soon though! Thanks for the ideas!

  3. Donna says:

    We do the ladder thing. Its so nice to have them on display, especially since I mainly buy them for the colours/designs. I am sucker for pretty things. 🙂

  4. Belinda says:

    I keep mine in the bedside draws. Mind you, I only have 3 wraps, a mei tai and a ring sling, so really not much to manage. I have hung my wraps on coat hangers in the cupboard before, which is good, but didnt work so much for the mei tai!

  5. Annie says:

    Mine are either strewn around the house/car… somewhere… Or if I do manage to put them away – during the bushfire season they are all in a box that’s packed ready to throw in the car if we have to evacuate. Well they aren’t actually IN the box, more like thrown on top of the box, but the important thing is I know where they are if we have to leave in a hurry…

  6. Bek says:

    I’m with the ‘strewn around the house’ camp – mainly on the back of the couch! Those not being used daily are stored in a boring old plastic tub in the wardrobe. The ladder idea makes me wish i was a wrapper – how beautiful as display. What i really want is a storage item (couple of shelves + something to hand MTs on) next to the front door but my DPs not the handyman type so….

  7. Grace says:

    I bought a device that hangs on the inside of the nursery door, it has 4 big hooks on it and I hang all the slings (that are in the house, not including the ones in the car) on that, it is great and easily accesible.

  8. Drip Tray : says:

    steel storage bins are the best thing to use. they last very long and is recyclable too `

  9. What a great article. You have really given some great ideas on how to store your sling and wraps. I’m sure this article will help out a lot of mums.
