The concept of baby wearing isn't new. Many cultures around the world carry their babies using some sort of carrier, usually fashioned out of a part of the mother's clothing or a long piece of cloth. In fact, the term "baby wearing" was coined by Dr. William Sears, co-author of The Baby Book, after observing content babies and their mothers in some of these cultures.
For those of us living in twenty-first century USA, it is not a necessity that we carry our infants. Why would we want to carry our babies on our bodies when there are so many other convenient ways to transport them?
While there are many proven benefits to baby wearing, the two most notable, and probably the most important to you are:
*BABIES who are carried like this are MORE CONTENT
*Wearing Baby makes life EASIER for the PARENT.
And, if these two aren't enough:
*Carrying Baby is great for intellectual and motor development
*Mothers who wear babies will have an increase in 'the mothering hormone,' prolactin. This, in turn, helps to nurture bonding, and makes for more successful breastfeeding and early parenting
* Baby wearing stimulates Baby's immune system, making for a healthier baby.
*Baby wearing is an excellent way for Baby to bond with anyone wearing him or her.
