Welcome to Once Upon a Sling

Central Illinois' premier babywearing store, with more choices to

keep your precious child close. 


**Yes, we are sad to announce we are closing by the end of the year.  Have no worries, carriers WILL stay local, but not under Once Upon a Sling.  
What this means is that you get deals!!!  Take 5% off in August with code "AUG5"

No new inventory will be ordered.  Take advantage of stock while it's available**


To simplify, all Carriers are being consolidated into one page per type of carrier.

We apologize for any broken links as we go through this process.


Shop our selection of Mei Tais, Ring Slings, Soft Structured Carriers, Wraps, and Accessories online or make an appointment to feel the difference.  We are happy to provide quality baby carriers and host babywearing classes that cover the how-to's, benefits, and safety of wearing your baby.
