The Amazing Benefits of Baby Wearing- (keeping your little one “Cuddle Close”)
The Baby Carrying Years
The first 4 years of a child’s life are referred to as the Carrying Years. Children in all cultures need to be kept close to their parents for safety and practical reasons. It is a natural part of life and research now clearly indicates that there is so much more to Babywearing – with benefits to support your little one to thrive in every area of their development. Even as your baby grows through the infant years – as a toddler and young child – they will still have times of needing to be carried and cuddled.
Ergonomic Support for Parents:
– has huge benefits in protecting the parents back – by positioning you in a symmetrical position without the lean and twist on the spine and by evenly distributing your baby’s weight. This enables you to keep your baby cuddle close to you in daily activities where they can continue to hear your heart beat, voice and adjust to the world with their parent to guide and keep them safe.
Ergonomic Support for Your Baby:
Positioning your baby in an ergonomic baby carrier carries them in a way that supports their development. Initially your newborn can be supported in the “Froggy” position with their little legs tucked up closely beside them. During the first 1 – 2 months their little mucles relax to enable them to sit in more of a seated “M”position with their little bottoms well supported and their knees coming up higher then their hips. This spreads the support across their buttocks and minimises the pressure on their developing hip and knee joints. Lillebaby carriers offer excellent ergonomic support for all the ages and stages of your baby.
Supporting your little one to Thrive:
Keeping your little one close – supports them to feel safe and secure and positions their central nervous system in the calm and alert state. This has benefits for their Neurological development, Sensori -Motor development, Vestibular Balance System, Physical growth, supports healthy digestion and supports healthy emotional bonding and attachment. Wow! Now this is exciting.
