Babywearing is a super useful parenting tool. Not only is it good for your baby but it helps you out too. Babywearing is an amazing tool for partners, dads, grandparents, and babysitters as well!
It can take a little practice at first for you and your baby to get used to it, but trust me, it’s worth the effort.
Keep calm and babywear on mama!
1. Free Hands
Babywearing can give you 2 free hands to get things done when your baby refuses to be put down.
2. Calm Baby
Babies love being near mama. Hearing their mother’s heartbeat while they sleep and skin-to-skin contact can help regulate baby’s temperature. Babies who are held tend to cry less.
3. Multiple Children
Babywearing can help when you have multiple children. So you can tend to baby and your other children.
Because babies cry less when they are carried, they are in a calmer state of mind and can more easily focus and take in their surroundings. Basically helping your baby learn.
5. Frequent Nursing
It can help you as a parent when baby is cluster feeding or wanting to nurse frequently. Just throw baby in the carrier and breastfeed as long as they want!
It can help soothe baby to sleep when nothing else works. Especially when baby is with another person besides mom and doesn’t have the option to nurse.
7. Sensory Processing
Babywearing can help children with sensory processing challenges or children who get overwhelmed or overstimulated easily.
8. Pet Safety
Have rowdy pets? Keep baby safe by wearing them! No need to worry about your furry family members hitting the baby swing while baby’s in it or bothering baby when on the floor.
It keeps your child contained when running errands. You don’t have to worry about them running around, potentially getting lost, or pulling things off the shelves.
10. Secure and Safe
Can be an amazing tool for keeping your child calm and feeling safe when in unfamiliar environments.
Babywearing has many benefits beyond these 10 reasons. If you have the option to babywear, try it out and see how it can positively impact your life during those early weeks, months, and years. Learn more about different babywearing options here.
