What is Baby Wearing ?
"Baby Wearing" simply means holding or carrying a baby or a young child using a cloth baby carrier or a sling.
Holding your child close to you is natural and universal. Baby Wearing makes it easier and more comfortable and allows you to attend daily tasks. As your hands are free you can, for example, read a book, wash dishes, go shopping without a heavy buggy,or simply enjoy your favorite music and dance or clap hands!!
Medical professionals agree that infants thrive through touch and Baby Wearing is a good way to do it. It has lots of benefits such as happier and healthier babies, better bond between the parents and their child... Your little one feels secured and loves when you move as this stimulation helps him to regulate his own physical responses.
What if I never tried it before ?
If you don't know how to "wear" your little one or don't have a sling or carrier yet, you can seek advice with the South London Sling Library where you will find professional sling and baby carrier information, demonstrations, drop in sessions to try on some different models and find the one fit for you and your little one, hire, etc.
