We love baby wearing! In addition to the obvious convenience, baby wearing allows the child to feel safe and calm. There are so many benefits to baby wearing, we thought we would share a few of our favorites:
1- Baby Wearing can help in milk production! Milk production is boosted by close contact between infant and mom.
2- Babies who are carried regularly cried 43% less overall and 54% less during evening hours (researched by Hunziker and Barr 1986).
3- Baby Wearing increases hormone levels: Prolactin and oxytocin levels in the mother are increased through contact with baby. Increased levels of mothering hormones leads to easier breastfeeding, more responsible mothering and a more secure maternal bond (Babywearing, 2010).
There are so many options for baby carriers, but one of our new found favorites is Líllébaby. The Líllébaby Complete Carrier offers all-in-one carrying- front, hip or back; baby face in, out, or in fetal position. It is easy to use and offers comfortable ergonomic carrying.
