What is Babywearing?



Babywearing is the practice of keeping your baby or toddler close and connected to you as you go about your daily activities using a  baby carrier, of which there are a plurality of types. It is a traditional practice in many cultures and even though it is not widely used by modern developed societies, it is becoming increasingly popular due to the many benefits it offers for both children and parents or caregivers.

Babywearing promotes bonding, supports breastfeeding, can help combat postpartum depression, makes caregiving easier, and can be a lifesaver for parents of high-needs children. Carried babies sleep, feed, and grow better. One study found that carried 6-week-olds cried 43% less than other children.

Babywearing does not suscribe to any particular parenting philosophy nor does it requiere a specific sort of carrier. It can be practiced by moms, dads, grandparents, siblings, nannies, nurses, doulas; in short, by anyone who cares for a newborn, infant, or toddler. There are safe and effective carrier options for every budget and taste.
