Benefits of Babywearing

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!

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.
