Babywearingworld wants all parents to know about, to understand, and to enjoy and benefit from the many pleasures which babywearing offers you.
Babywearing is the act of carrying your baby with you, keeping them close enough to kiss, be it in a carrier, a sling, a hip seat, a wrap, or any of the other styles of Babywearing carrier available.
We want you to love Babywearing as much as the millions who love and practice it around the globe today. Read our quick introduction to Babywearing and the different styles we will deal with.
I hope that we can help you find what you are looking for. Whether you are here because you are new to babywearing, or you are expecting your first baby and want to see if babywearing is for you, maybe you are a babywearer and want to know what’s new, perhaps you are here for help with choosing a babycarrier, or you are simply here to relax and read the latest parenting news, then you have come to the right place.
Here at BabywearingWorld we know just how rewarding attachment parenting can be, how the bond between you and baby can grow immeasurably with some babywearing.
We also know that attachment parenting isn’t for everyone, but what we do know is that a Baby Carrier can be useful to every parent, and is a must have piece of your baby kit.
What kind of Babywearing
is right for me?
We want to take some of the confusion out of choosing which type of Baby Carrier is right for you, and which style of carrying is the one for you and your lifestyle. You want a carrier which both you and your baby will feel comfortable in, you want one which suits your personality, you want one which will spread the weight evenly, give your back support, not put greater strain on either shoulder, one which your child can nap in safely and let you carry on with everything else in your life, or if you are like me then you can spend half an hour watching him sleep knowing that he is safe and sound, before realising the massive list of things to get on with!
We look at the different styles of babywearing; slings, mei tais, hip carriers, and soft structured baby carriers. We examine the pros and cons of the different styles. We offer you advice on what carrier is suitable for what age baby, and also what carrier might best suit you and your lifestyle. In those styles of babywearing we look at the different types of babycarrier available, then we can help you with choosing (and using) a babycarrier.
Safety is always on our minds and we want you to enjoy babywearing whilst secure in the knowledge that you are a safe babywearer. We offer advice on the safest way to wear the different styles of carrier and we also have a Baby Sling Safety Guide with the TICKS method from the Baby Sling Safety Campaign.
We also offer some reviews of our preferred carriers which are available on the internet today. Our links and advertisements will take you direct to these products on the web so you don’t have to spend time searching, we look for the best prices so you don’t have to.
