Babywearing: All you Need to Know

Benefits of Babywearing

Reduces Crying

One of the most daunting challenges faced by most nursing mothers is to cuddle their baby and perform other chores at home. The good news is, you can multitask around the home and still put an end to your baby's tears.

A study was conducted in 1986, the outcome of the research shows that babies who were cuddled tend to fuss and cry less. If you're a nursing mother seeking creative, effective, and safe ways to cuddle your baby, this technique will be a no-brainer!

Promotes Health

Over the years, there has been a series of research on the benefits of skin-to-skin contact on parents and their babies. Wearing a baby in carriers that allow skin-to-skin contact will regulate the baby's temperature, breathing patterns, and heartbeat.

Assists with Breastfeeding

If you're a nursing mother, babywearing can promote breastfeeding. You can breastfeed your baby while in the carrier; this makes it pretty easy for nursing mothers to practice demand feeding or feed on the go.

How to Baby Wear

Babywearing depends on the type of carrier you’re using, the size, and the age. One of the best ways to go around this is to read all the instructions on the manufacturer's manual before using the carriage. Sometimes, it is ideal to contact a local babywearing group to learn what it takes to use a carrier safely.

Tips to Babywearing

For Newborns

If the baby is healthy, has no medical concerns, and weighs around 8 -9 pounds, they can be worn on a carrier, although the type you’re going for can be a limiting factor.

We recommend using a stretchy wrap; if you prefer using a soft structured carrier, use a newborn insert for best results.

A Brief History on Baby Wearing

The history of babywearing is as old as human existence. During the hunter-gathering past of man, they were itinerant and always on the move to search for moving herds, food, and safer campgrounds.

Due to the vulnerability expressed by most children, the only way to bring them along was to baby wear
them along. The mothers carried them on their hips while fathers kept them on their shoulders

When humans began to settle, at about 8000bc, they began to carry their children to the fields where
they domesticate their cattle. Even in the current dispensation, baby carrying has not become outdated as there are still many cultures where it is trending to carry babies with different forms of fabric or carriage.

Babywearing was and is a trend for most mums. It presents you with a stylish and safe way to keep
your baby close and gives you the unique benefit of freeing your hand during
house chores.
