I’m moving articles from the website over to the blog.
Babywearing is simply the ancient practice of wearing your baby next to your body instead of using a car seat or stroller.
“Babywearing often means changing your mindset of what babies are really like. New parents often envision babies as lying quietly in a crib, gazing passively at dangling mobiles and picked up and carried only to be fed and played with and then put down. You may think that “up” periods are just dutiful intervals to quiet you baby long enough to put him down again. Babywearing reverses this view. Carry your baby in a sling many hours a day, and then put her down for sleep times and tend to your personal needs.” (Dr. William Sears, renowned pediatrician)
