Welcome to The Green Bean. We are a baby-carrying consultancy and sling library based in Wantage, South Oxfordshire. We offer tailor made, one to one consultations as well as exciting, interactive workshops and bespoke packages. We are very excited to be approved stockists of Boba, Beco, Moby, Jellystone and Lenny Lamb products as well as a number of other locally made and gorgeous children’s items.

We are very passionate about holding our babies close and believe that this fits into a much wider parenting philosophy involving a more instinctive, gentle and natural approach to issues that modern parents are likely to face. We understand that gentle parenting in our fast paced society is hard and that essential support is often lacking. Our weekly Green Bean Meets are our contribution to creating a community of gentle support for mums, dads and other caregivers interested in gentle or attachment parenting. We are affiliated with Attachment Parenting UK (APUK) and have a well-stocked book library that is free to browse and borrow from. Our meets are very welcoming and social with fun activities for children of all ages and every two weeks we also look at a particular parenting topic that is of interest to the group. Our Sling Library is available to browse and borrow from every 2 weeks and free, impartial advice is always available from trained babycarrying consultants.

In addition to the meetings we are also incredibly proud of our hugely supportive Facebook Group: APUKWantage@The Green Bean. Come along and say ‘Hi’.
