Wearing Your Baby

In case you are not aware, there are many wonderful benefits of wearing your baby in a sling, pouch, or wrap. If you are like most moms, living in today’s hectic world, you are always on the lookout for simple things you can do to assure that your little one is as healthy and happy as can be. Wearing your baby will help you accomplish both of these feats.

It is a well-known fact that most babies cry less when they are held. They naturally feel calmer and have a greater sense of security, whenever they feel your touch. Wearing your baby is a convenient way to provide this warmth and security as you are going about your daily routine. Most times, there is no need to stop what you are doing, in order to administer this comfort. Baby wearing is just one of the tools common among attachment parents.


Safety is a big issue when it comes to our children. Our neighborhoods are not as safe as they once were and problems seem to be getting worse, instead of better. Wearing your baby adds an extra element of safety to his or her life.

It is a common misconception that slings can only be used to accommodate infants. However, that is not the case. Toddlers, weighing as much as thirty pounds or so, can certainly be carried in most of the slings, which are available today. Try it the next time you visit a busy shopping mall or even the zoo. No bulky stroller, required!

Wearing your baby is healthy for you too. Many new moms find they have to work a bit to shed the extra pounds that they gained while pregnant. These same moms often find it hard to find the time to exercise. Wearing your baby gives you a ‘mini weight lifting workout’, each and every time you utilize your baby sling.
