Wild World Mama - Why Babywear.

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.

4. Learning

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.
