Close Parent Caboo - Rental Carrier

Rent from £5.00

Made from soft snuggly jersey material, the easy pull on then tighten design of the Close Parent Caboo gives you the advantages of a stretchy wrap without all the tying.  Cleverly designed to fit a huge range of different parent shapes and sizes, this carrier is an ideal choice for a new baby.  Rent it to try before you buy or rent for the whole 4th trimester before moving onto a next step option.

Key Features

  • Weight tested from 2.2 kg (5 lb) to 14.5 kg (32 lbs)
  • Realistically works right from day 1, and can work really well for lower birth weight babies and those born prematurely.
  • Supportive enough that will continue to work, as long and you and baby want to continue using it.  Babies tend to grow out of carrier developmentally rather than physically, typically somewhere between 3-6 months, although this varies a lot baby to baby.
  • Easy to raise and lower, making this a great option for breastfeeding in
  • Great option for Twins and singletons alike
  • Fits all shapes and size parents, Mums and Dad’s alike
  • Easy pull on design makes it fast to put on and take off as needed

The Close Caboo is a great option for anyone who likes the idea of a stretchy wrap but are put off by tying involved.  The Caboo combines the same softness and closeness provided by a stretchy wrap but much of the tying has already been done for you.  Instead the Caboo can simply be pulled over your head much like a t-shirt, easily adjusted to give you a perfect fit through the rings and then baby popped in and the final panel simply tied around you both.  Easy peasy.

Because the carrier can be adjusted to fit you, it fits a wide range of parent shapes and sizes, men and women alike.  Likewise, because baby can be place in the carrier in different ways to suit how they like to be held, this fits pretty much all babies too.  Even twins!  You can see my tutorials of  9 different ways to use a Close Caboo here.  And find my full review here.

Hire it and see how it works for you.  If you love it, you can purchase your own here and those that hire first will receive a £5 discount code they can use against the price of a new one.  Or choose a 12 week hire to rent for the whole 4th trimester - saving both the planet and your wallet from bying something new that you'll only need for a few months.

Note - the Caboo comes in 3 different models - the Lite, the Cotton Blend and the Organic.  My personal favourite is the Lite because with slightly narrower straps and thinner material than the other models, the Lite won't overheat you or baby or overwhelm you with tonnes of fabric.  Perfect for warm weather but also snuggly enough for use all year round.  You can see all 3 models compared in depth here.

Rental information

Rent for 2, 4 or 12 weeks. Date selected will be the date the carrier will be posted for and should arrive on or near that date. In case of post taking a little longer, just let us know and your full 2, 4 or 12 week hire will be honoured from the date the carrier arrived with you. Return date is the date you post back - you do not need to post early to arrive back by that date. If you wish to collect in person from my home (SW14 7HU), please select the date you wish to collect on, and then select local collection at check out. If the date you'd like to collect on isn't showing, please get in touch as it will likely be possible to arrange a short notice collection.

During your hire if you have any questions or worries please do get in touch. If you'd like to send a photo or two for a quick fit check please do!

Please note that slings and carriers are extremely safe when used properly, however misuse can cause injury to yourself or your child. It is your responsibility to ensure that you are using the sling correctly and that you and your child are safe at all times when using the sling. If you are at all worried or concerned at all please do get in touch and ask for help. Sheen Slings cannot be held responsible for any accident that results in injury or death whilst the sling is in your care.

You remain responsible for the sling or carrier for the duration of your hire. Loss or damaged will be charged at cost of replacement so please look after the carrier and treat it as you would something of your own. That said, normal wear and tear is expected so please do feel able to use it fully and there is no need to wash before sending it back as I rewash everything on return.

If you need to wash, this carrier can be machine washed at 40 degrees with a liquid detergent, and either then left to dry overnight or tumble dried on low. I recommend unthreading it and popping a sock over the rings (and using a hair elastic to secure) inorder to protect your maching from the rings. For small posset marks it can be quicker and easier to simply spot clean with a soft damp cloth.
