Babywearing Benefits

By June 6, 2018 No Comments

Why Babywear?

Time is one of the few things in this world that you can’t replace. When you’re having a rough time trying to balance baby and life, it’s very easy to wish yourself into the future, into a time when your baby doesn’t need you every second of the day. But it doesn’t have to be that way. There is life after baby…

Benefits to Mom:

• Moms who babywear are free to get back out into the world earlier and live their lives again
• Babywearing eases the symptoms of colic and reflux, making it easier for you to leave the house with confidence
• Babywearing gives you two free hands to answer emails, put on some mascara, or go for a coffee with a friend while still holding your baby close
• Babywearing has been said to reduce and prevent postnatal depression – probably because you now have time to put on some mascara 😉
• Having your baby close to your chest during those early weeks may increase your milk supply and help with feeding issues
• Babywearing gives you more flexibility and mobility – you will often find yourself in a situation where it’s very difficult, if not impossible, to navigate with a pram
• If you’re practising kangaroo care or attachment parenting, babywearing allows you to hold your baby close for longer periods of time, therefore deepening your bond with your baby

Benefits to Baby:

• According to studies, carried babies cry 43% less overall, and 54% less during evening hours
• Carried babies fall asleep quicker and sleep for longer periods of time
• Being able to hear Mommy’s heartbeat gives your baby the feeling of security and calms your baby instantly
• Being carried helps your baby to develop trust and self-confidence
• Babywearing aids digestion and gas as baby is in an upright position while he/she sleeps
