Baby Wearing for the win!
I thought I knew about baby wearing... until I tried to do it with my oldest daughter. I watched a video about using a "ring sling" while pregnant. 4 kids later, and I've tried all kinds of carriers. My local baby-wearing group provided guidance and options for all types of carriers. Here are some benefits for babies and parents:
Benefits for babies:
Carried babies cry less
Carried babies are calmer and more content
Carried babies sleep more peacefully
Carried babies gain weight better
Carried babies have better digestion
Carried babies develop better
Benefits for parents
Carrying babies frees your hands
Carrying babies makes you physically stronger
Carrying babies allows you to do house work or work from home
