The hands-free aspect is probably the most obvious benefit of babywearing. How often as new moms do we need to do something that absolutely does require TWO hands? (even though we learn quickly how to do A LOT with just one hand!) By wearing your baby, you have a little more freedom without the stress of having to put down a baby who might be fussy, teething, gassy, reflux-y, and the list goes on.
Speaking of reflux, babywearing is amazing for that- keeping baby upright longer will help them digest and keep that milk from coming back up and causing pain and crying. If you are breastfeeding, babywearing can allow you to nurse on the go, while doing chores, or while looking after other children. You don’t have to feel glued to the couch and your baby still gets what they need. Win!
And babywearing is simply FUN! Keeping your baby close and cuddly and kissable and wearing them in different fashionable wraps is fun! And who doesn’t like that!?
