WHY IS BABYWEARING SO GOOD FOR YOU AND YOUR BABY?

We think it’s fantastic that something so simple can mean so much—to both babies and parents.

Parents often tell us that they were unprepared for how much closeness a newborn baby needs, especially during the first months. Given the huge transition to life outside the womb, it’s only natural for a newborn baby to feel safest and calmest when close to mom or dad. Your baby loves nothing more than to feel your warmth, hear your voice and your heartbeat, and smell your reassuring scent.

That’s why we think babywearing in a baby carrier is so incredibly good—your little one gets all the closeness they need, and you get hands-free parenting. Spending time so close to each other also releases the feel-good hormone oxytocin—which helps the two of you to bond.

Isn’t it amazing that something so simple can mean so much?

  • SIMPLICITY

Babywearing frees up your hands—perfect when you have chores you need to do but want to keep your baby close. It can also be convenient to be able to leave the stroller at home when you’re walking in the woods or collecting an older sibling from preschool. An easily adjustable baby carrier also makes babywearing easier for all the people close to your baby.

  • CURIOSITY

As your baby grows, so does their curiosity about the world around them. Thus, babywearing in the facing-out position or on your back allows your little one to explore their surroundings while remaining safely and reassuringly close to you.

  • AND HELP WHEN LITTLE TUMMIES ARE UPSET!
