What is Babywearing?
Babywearing is the practice of wearing or carrying your baby or toddler through the use of one of a variety of types of baby carriers, to keep them close and connected to you as you engage in daily activities. Wearing your child gives incredible benefits to both the babywearer, and the baby or toddler, among others:
- Happier Baby – babies who are carried tend to be calmer and cry or fuss less
- Safe – Could reduce the risk of SIDS by wearing your baby during naps
- Ideal Breastfeeding – closer contact by routinely wearing your child increase the chance of a successful breastfeeding journey
- Upright position in a carrier can ease the discomfort of Reflux
- Convenient – your hands are free while your little one is happy and safe with you at all time
- Ease the strain – Wearing your child is safer and easier on your back than carrying in arms.
