At Helina Baby we feel the same about babywearing, it’s vital that you have an excellent fitting carrier, especially since you’ll be wearing it for hundreds if not thousands of hours. This is why we recommend you try our carrier using the Lending Library, it’s a great way to test drive our one size fits all carrier the way all carriers should be tested, cuddling with your baby.

Additionally, you will receive exclusive customer-only support and education while you explore the comfort and functionality of our trial carrier for one full weeki

100% Purchase credit

If you decide to purchase your own Helina Baby carrier afterwards, your rental fee and deposit will be applied towards the purchase of your brand new carrier.


With our 30-day money back guarantee on all purchases, you can buy a brand new carrier and decide to return it later if you don't like it. However, most of our customers appreciate a more eco-friendly option. With our Lending Library, if you rent a trial carrier and decide it’s not 100% for you, you will be happy to know that you didn’t let a brand new carrier go to waste, ending up in a landfill.

Easy and convenient returns

At the end of your trial period, simply mail the carrier back to us using the included prepaid return-shipping label. Once we receive the carrier we will refund your deposit.
