Benefits of Using a Baby Sling
Baby carrying – is it just for a “certain type” of parent??
Yes – absolutely – it is for the EVERY ONE OF YOU type of parent /grandparents / aunties / uncles ……
There are so many recognised benefits to baby wearing in the first year that address many of the most common “frustrations” of early parenting, which include:
•1 carrier frees up 2 hands – perfect for anyone with a toddler, housework to do, dinner to make, or a cup of tea to drink whilst it’s still warm!
•Babies that are carried cry approximately 50% less – have I sold you the idea already?
•50% of all babies experience reflux in the first 12 weeks but 30 – 40 minutes in a good carrier after a feed can help ease the discomfort.
•Bonding is thought to be enhanced between baby and parents when offering a natural extension of kangaroo care through carrying, which brings about it’s own emotional and development benefits.
•Finally mums who routinely use a baby carrier are twice as likely to successfully breast feed so consider having a wrap ready for those earliest days.
