It’s International Babywearing Week from October 5-10th! And, as you can see, I am a big fan. I currently have two baby carriers, and I love using them for so many reasons. I thought I’d share them with you here in honour of this week!
Here are 5 Things I Love About Babywearing
01 // Instant Nap
For both my babies, babywearing was a great way to get them to actually have a nap. Autumn always slept in my arms, and Aiden tries to.. but has a hard time sleeping in my arms due to chasing Autumn around… but when I plunk him in the wrap, he falls asleep right away.
02 // Hands-free
Babywearing is a wonderful way to be hands free during the day. Currently, I babywear when I’m going for walks with Autumn in the stroller. I have also worn my babies when I want to cook, or when I’m doing light cleaning around the house. I also like to babywear at bigger events and parties. That way, I’m able to enjoy myself and mingle without worrying about a little one getting cranky.
04 // Discretely breastfeeding
Babywearing is a great way to discretely breastfeed in public. Others can’t tell what I’m doing, and I can walk freely around the grocery store while breastfeeding AT THE SAME TIME. It’s pretty much the best thing ever.
05 // The closeness
Above all, I love babywearing because of the extra cuddles I get. I love having my little ones close to me like that, and the benefits of babywearing for the baby are HUGE.
