Some Benefits that I have experienced first hand from Babywearing

Keeping baby safe and secure.. I am not particularity fond of having strangers touch Aiden.. In a carrier I am able to keep him away from baby loving strangers.. There are soo many germs that it is calming to know that I am able to keep them away from Aiden

Bonding, I am more in tuned to Aiden than any of my other children and I credit this to babywearing. I know his cues and am able to soothe him in a moment.

What benefits have you seen first hand from wearing your baby?

Wear Your Babies


  1. I just wish I had those wonderful wraps "years" ago when my boys were babies. I definitely kept them close, but it would have made life much easier with the wraps they have available now.

  2. In addition to those that you mentioned, I find that babies that are worn several to many hours each day experience less diaper rash! Yes, it's true! When you are holding and carrying your baby, you are immediately aware of when they 'poop in the doop' and can get that mess changed right away. Babies that are down in strollers, swings, etc. are more likely to have a stealth poop that doesn't get changed right away and therefore leading to a higher chance of a sore bum.

    Everywhere I go, people tell me how cool it is that I am carrying my baby in the wrap. I couldn't live without mine!
