New parents learn quickly that their babies just love to be cuddled in their arms and get very unsettled when they put them down. In the first few months of the baby’s life mums find themselves carrying their babies most of the time. Not surprisingly, many feel it’s impossible to get anything done. More and more parents find that a good baby carrier or sling is the perfect solution for these rewarding but exhausting times. With a calm, happy baby strapped to your chest, you can continue with your life.
The Baby Carrier – Benefits for Babies & Parents:
- Warmth and security – A sling acts as a “transitional womb” for newborns and provides the warmth and feeling of being surrounded they are used to and require at these initial stages. Regular parental rhythms, such as the heartbeat, breathing and walk, have a balancing effect on the infant’s irregular rhythms.
- Baby Wearing may Reduce infant crying. Many studies show that increased carrying can reduce infant crying, reduce postpartum depression and promote secure attachment.
- Carrying your baby Helps with breastfeeding. It has been found that carried children also fed more frequently, though not for increased duration.
- Babies are usually Quiet and Alert while being carried. Research shows that carried babies were quiet and alert for more time each day than the control group of babies.
- Carrying your baby Enhances your communication with him which results in a less stressed and happier baby. Baby wearing helps parents stay close to baby, which increases the chances of the baby’s cues being heard, understood, and receiving an appropriate response.
- Being carried in a car seat may be dangerous. Many parents who do not use baby carriers or slings tend to carry their young babies in their car seat. This seems easy and comfy at first, since when arriving at your destination you do not have to take your infant out of his car seat – you just unbolt it and go. This practice is not only uncomfortable for the babies – who are forced to sit for long time in an uncomfortable and unnatural position – but also for the parents who carry in one arm the weight of the baby and the seat. In fact, this position is even dangerous. Many newborns (and in particular low birth weight and premature babies) often suffer from lowered blood oxygen levels when restrained in an infant carrier in the early weeks of life. A medical report has concluded: “Because lowering of oxygen saturation values was seen uniformly in all newborn infants, car seats should be used only for travel and travel should be minimized during the first months of life”.
- When you use a baby carrier to carry your baby your hands are free! Baby-carrying holds baby securely, leaving the parents hands free for work and activities. Whether it’s the housework, pushing a shopping cart or going to the office. This can all be done while carrying your baby! This is especially helpful if you have another toddler or child at home. You can easily attend the older child, fetch things and play, while your little one is happily strapped to your chest.
- Carrying your infant in a good baby carrier is comfortable and not painful. Carrying baby in your arms is painful. Babies love to be carried and so do toddlers! Carrying your infant (yes, even a newborn) on your arms is painful and may damage your back. Usually, many find that the ‘heavy load’ back pain experienced during pregnancy diminishes within two weeks after delivery, however general or lower back pain may return as you then begin lifting and carrying your infant on adaily basis.
- Baby wearing is fun and rewarding – And last of all, but not least important, baby carrying keeps your baby close at heart. While carrying your baby in a sling, you feel the warmth of his or her little body, their soft skin, their smell, their little movements; you hear their little voice. How can you let such a sweet dear little thing rest by itself in a pram or cot? You just want to cuddle and kiss them all day, don’t you? That’s what you do when you use a baby carrier.

Other things to consider when your baby’s in a carrier:
- Is she hot? Periodically feel her back and tummy for sweat. If she’s warm, take her out and let her cool down.
- Is she happy? Your baby can’t tell you if her arm is asleep or whether her hip’s at an uncomfortable angle. If her limbs are pale or mottled, re-position her.
- Are you happy? Save your back by reading instructions carefully to make sure the carrier fits and that you’re wearing it properly. Your baby’s weight should be evenly distributed.
