The Top Babywearing Benefits for Parents

As you get ready to welcome the arrival of your new bundle of joy, there’s no doubt that you are making a list of all the baby gear and items you’ll need. As you piece together that list, you may want to consider adding a wrap that would allow for “babywearing.”

Babywearing has become quite the trend as of late, and not just because it gives parents a way to walk around with their baby and have both their hands free. Here’s a look at the top babywearing benefits that parents are enjoying.

Let's Talk About the Convenience

The first benefit we need to discuss is, of course, the convenience. It can be pretty hard to get much accomplished with a newborn. They often need a lot of holding, which doesn't leave you with a free hand. By using a baby wrap, your little one will be safe, snug, and secure and you'll have both hands free. This means you can move about the house, do simple chores and errands in and out of the house, and even relax a bit. New parents often complain of sore and tired arms and shoulder muscles; the wrap will eliminate this completely.

Studies Show Baby Will Cry Less

Wouldn't it be great to find a magic way to get your baby to stop crying? A wrap could be the solution. Studies have shown that a baby who is wrapped snuggly against your chest will cry less. They can feel that physical and emotional connection to their parent that they crave.

Anyone Can Use the Wrap

Another great benefit is that anyone can use the wrap, not just mom and dad. Grandparents, aunts, and uncles can all take part in the experience and start to build their own bond with your baby, which can be hard to do otherwise. It also gives mom a break, which is usually very much needed.
This is me at our local farmstead. I am wearing our third child, Callie. Two more came after her and I even mowed the grass with them in the sling while their dad was out of town :-)

Consider it a Workout

For the new mom who is anxious to get back to her pre-pregnancy shape, it can be pretty hard to find time to exercise. Wearing your baby acts like exercise and you won't have to put aside a specific block of time to get it done. The entire time you are wearing your baby in a wrap or sling, you will be giving your entire body a fabulous workout.

Get as Much Information as Possible

If you happen to be a first-time parent, or even if it’s been a few years since the birth of your last child, it’s always a good idea to do your research and get as much information as possible about today’s trends and baby gear. The website is the perfect place to catch up on all the latest baby-related news and help you navigate the waters of parenthood.
