Baby Wearing Education and Support
There are wonderful benefits to wearing babies. Baby wearing is great for babies who suffer from colic, an episode of crying for more than three hours a day for more than three days a week for three weeks, in an otherwise healthy child between the ages of two weeks and four months. It aids in less crying, babies are more calm and content when close to their caregivers. And, babies sleep better and more peaceful when close a warm body. It is very comfortable for mom and baby. It is easy for baby to adjust to various positions, very much like the womb space. Wearing babies facilitates breastfeeding and bonding. Babies nurse better, gain weight better, enjoy better digestion, and develop better, especially when worn skin-to-skin. It is easy to maneuver baby and makes transition from one parent to another much easier. In most cases baby wearing allows hands-free options to get things done.
