Most of you have heard of it, may have never tried it, tried it with the wrong appliance and decided it wasn't for you, or have never attempted to do it. Baby wearing has been around for centuries, but only recently has gained extensive popularity in the United States. Why baby wear?
Baby wearing enhances your bond with your child and calms them down. Research shows that worn infants barely ever cry. They are swaddled next to your chest. It mimicks the womb. Wearing your baby also allows you to complete household chores that could not be completed with a fussy baby. You don't have to worry about lugging around a stroller when your child is wrapped. Where should you inquire about wearing your child? Believe it or not, there are many Facebook support groups that discuss baby wearing and also have meet ups to show you how to baby wear. They give advice on baby wearing items and where to purchase them. You can go to a meetup and purchase one there. Personally, my favorite wrap is a woven wrap. My wrap is called the hip baby wrap. I purchased the item on amazon for $67.00. Wraps are expensive, but they're worth the cost. It will not disappoint you. You can wrap your child until they're two years old in my wrap. Many momma's wrap until 5 years old. It's a little complicated, but easy when you get the hang of it. YouTube tutorials help as well. Don't be afraid to wear your baby. If you're breastfeeding, it allows you to discreetly do it without a cover! Have fun wearing away!
