Baby wearing is convenient and also a show of affection for the baby. The first few months of a baby are always calmer for the mom and happier for the baby when the baby stays close to the mom. The convenience of a sling is that, you have your baby close by and your hands are free to do other things.
Babies also like the cuddly comfort of a sling and will often go to sleep in them. The warmth of the swaddle and carrier coupled by the fact that baby is as close to mother as he or she can possibly be are a combination that sends any baby to slumber land and quick.
Even though baby wearing is something that has existed through generations dating centuries back, today’s know how about handling infants and the technology that comes with it has presented a lot of options.
Having a baby carrier for when you have swaddled you baby is important and here is why:
It is all about convenience
As mentioned before, a baby carrier can free your hands for a lot of other tasks while you watch the baby. Apart from this it also allows you to breast feed the baby subtly even in public places because it covers the baby well.
Improves the baby’s learning capabilities
Babies that are often carried have a high level of auditory and visual alertness. Their ability to sustain quiet alertness is also increased. Carrying the baby improves cognitive development since the baby is exposed to more experiences and conversations.
Your bond with the baby grows stronger
Babies like to be around their mothers a lot. It is a safer environment for them and with their mother around, they feel loved. The bond between mother and child grows because the mother is also always around the baby catering to their every need. This makes the mother feel more competent as a parent. The parent is able to learn things about the baby fast which improves communication; you get used to certain sounds and looks and begin to understand what they mean.
Baby carriers are a safe place for the child to be
The first few months of a new born are delicate and they need extra attention. The best way to make sure that you keep your baby in your sight at all times is having a baby carrier. Anything can happen if the baby is left alone somewhere around the house while you run small errands. Having the baby at your bosom means you can monitor them at all times and know what’s going on with them.
It is economical too
When you have two kids walking around with them is difficult if you don’t have a double stroller. Instead of having to buy an expensive stroller that you may find is not within your budget, you can also opt to carry the young one in a baby carrier and push the older one in a stroller.
A good baby carrier should feel comfortable to you and the baby. With a baby carrier, the infant should be much quieter and peaceful too.
