Benefits of Babywearing for Babies & Toddlers
  • Helps infants develop emotionally and socially
  • Helps to meet infants physical needs. Babies need and enjoy motion to help develop their vestibular system
  • Wearing your baby provides closeness even when you cannot give your baby 100% of your attention
  • After birth, the experience of being held close to a parent’s body helps them recall the peace they felt in the womb
  • Baby wearing is also very useful for toddlers. The world can be a scary place for them and they will feel more confident when they know they can retreat to the security of a carrier if needed.


Benefits of Babywearing for Parents
  • Frees mother’s hands for day-to-day activities
  • Parents experience a boost in confidence when babywearing. A baby who is contented makes a parent feel more competent.
  • Breastfeeding mothers who practice baby wearing find it easy to nurse their babies more often. It is also easy to bottle feed in a carrier.
  • Babywearing makes skin-to-skin time easier, which is integral to babies development during the first three months
