Keep Calm and Carry Your Baby

When there is a demanding little person to look after, the simplest of tasks can seem impossible. Having a shower, going food shopping, simply getting out of the house can all seem a Herculean task. But there are ways that we can make our lives easier.

Babywearing a.k.a carrying your baby in a sling, wrap or carrier is a great way to free your hands. Keeping your baby kissably close, you can navigate life better and easier with your children involved. This closeness stimulates Oxytocin, resulting in a more parental bond. 

It’s good for you – and your baby!

Research confirms that babywearing promotes their physical, social and cognitive development; can help reduce colicky symptoms; and even crying. It can strengthen the bond between parent and baby, as you maintain closeness throughout the day. This is especially prominent during the ‘4th trimester’.
For you, the parent, simple tasks such as nipping out for a pint of milk will be a doddle – you might get the chance to enjoy a cup of coffee! If you have toddlers too, there is something rewarding about carrying an infant ‘hands free’ whilst still being able to hold hands with older children.
Other benefits include:
  • Decreases risks of SIDS
  • Allows mums to breastfeed discreetly on-the-go
  • Promotes early language development, as babies learn by watching faces.

Everybody is different but I can’t imagine these benefits being anything but universal: there are so many wraps, slings and carriers to choose from, whatever their shape or size. 

To get started you need to touch, feel and try a variety of babywearing kit to find out what works best for you and your family’s needs. The easiest way to do this is to go to your nearest Sling Library, the advice and guidance you’ll get here will be far greater to anything you’ll find on the high street. 
Babywearing as a concept is a fast growing trend, but it isn’t yet fully understood, particularly within shops – some of the best known carriers, for example, will not provide the required support for your back and may even cause damage to baby’s hips – so expert advice is a must!

Try out our Izmi Carrier’s in your local sling library!
