Babywearing Basics

Benefits of Babywearing

Babywearing is a natural practice with many benefits for children and those who care for them. Babies that are worn cry less, sleep better, learn more, and get to be more involved in the world around them. Babywearing helps babies adapt to life outside the womb while being in close, comforting contact with a caregiver. Wearing babies makes accomplishing daily tasks easier for caregivers, facilitates breastfeeding, helps with postpartum depression, and promotes bonding.
