Babywearing provides an amazing opportunity for Western world mums to transition naturally from pre-baby life to motherhood. This is because mums can learn to carry on with their daily routines and social activities while wearing their babies in the sling
They can do shopping, cleaning and cooking, go out for a dinner, go to movies or a concert while carrying their newborn. They can even catch up on their sleep much easier which adds to their emotional and physical well-being. Most importantly, they will not end up feeling over-whelmed and anti-social. Baby wearing will help new mums stay calm and enjoy new life with the baby.
Nowadays this essential skill has been forgotten and new mums need to get acquainted and master it from scratch. Like with most skills, acquiring it takes time, patience, practice and some guidance.
This guidance can be obtained from the on-line videos, peer to peer support at sling meets or from a qualified baby carrying consultant.
