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.

What are your favourite things about babywearing?
