Is babywearing the new parenting fad?
Actually, babywearing has been around since the beginning of times. Our animal ancestors have been "carrying" species, keeping their youngest close when looking for food. Our human newborns still have inborn clinging reflexes but aren't mature enough to actually cling to their mother right after birth. That's why early humans started to make carriers.
Babywearing Benefits both Your Little One & You
Babywearing has so many benefits, it's practical, enjoyable and natural.
Oh, it can be so hard to go outside and enjoy things after you had a baby. Even simple things like having a coffee with friends might be challenging. Babywearing allows you to go and enjoy things you liked in your pre-baby life together with your little one. It can be coffee, dancing, going to the mountains, and the list goes on...
You have a bebe who would only sleep on you? Or a little one who needs to be held all the time? If so, isn't it really hard to do anything else? Luckily, babywearing is hands-free, so it can give you time back without ignoring your lil' bebe.
Not everyone falls in love at first sight. True for both romantic and parental love. Whether or not you have fallen in love with your baby right away, carrying her close to your body will be a beautiful additional layer of your connection.
Being the closest to the person their life depends on, smelling their scent and hearing their heartbeat, being warm, snug and cosy. Does anyone still wonder why carried babies cry less?
The most precious thing you ever get to wear is your baby.
