Emotional Benefits of Carrying Your Baby
Sure, baby-wearing is a convenient way for you to keep an eye on your little one while giving you more mobility with your hands. But, did you know that wearing your baby has emotional benefits for both you and your child?
After your baby is born, it is very important for your child to be carried in order to help regulate their bodily functions and learn more about their environment. Using a baby carrier allows you and your baby to learn more about each other and your cues. This can lead to increased feelings of competence as a parent, as well as improve the bond between caregiver and baby. What’s more, according to a study published in Pediatrics, being held in a carrier for at least three hours a day reduces crying and colic by 43% during the day and 51% at night. A happier baby means a happier you!
