Better and faster development
When babies are relaxed, their biological systems are not stressed. This means that their heart and breathing rates are optimal, their digestive system works at its best, and their temperature is suitably regulated. Research has shown that babies develop best, both emotionally and mentally when they feel secure and relaxed at this early time in their lives.
The physical and psychological benefits associated with baby-wearing encourage children to feel secure and content and build a solid sense of self-esteem. Babies, who are in a sling are in a state of “quiet alertness”, which is optimal for learning. They are at the right height to see and hear everything that you are doing, and they can interact easily. It is an ideal, comfy and safe spot from which to learn, view the world, hear you talking, and see all the things that you do.
Less separation anxiety
Babies who are carried are less clingy and tend to initiate separation much earlier than babies less frequently held. It allows your child to be at the centre of activity, not be THE center of attention, which is a wonderful environment proven to stimulate brain development and cognitive learning.
