Babywearing – Carriers, Slings & Wraps
Baby wearing is a wonderful way to nurture your baby from the moment of birth until well into the toddler years. It is a parenting practice that creates strong, healthy emotional bonds between children and their parents and is at the heart of Attachment Parenting. It is often through trial and error that we find what works for our particular child and many families find success in Attachment Parenting where the aim is to raise secure, joyful, and empathic children.
There are many options to choose from when it comes to carriers (soft wraps, slings and buckle – carriers for example) so do your research and try to find a lending library in your area. This will give you an opportunity to try before you buy ensuring you choose a style and size that is comfortable for you and your baby. You should also receive expert advice in terms of how to carry your baby safely and avoid carriers that do not allow correct positioning of your baby’s hips.
One lovely option is a 100% cotton ring sling. Claire, at Sovereign, offers free consultations too. Follow the link below for further details!
