Healthy Babies. Premature babies and babies with special needs often enter the world with fragile nervous systems. When a baby rides in a sling attached to his mother, he is in tune with the rhythm of her breathing, the sound of her heartbeat, and the movements his mother makes—walking, bending, and reaching. This stimulation helps him to regulate his own physical responses. Research has even shown that premature babies who are touched and held gain weight faster and are healthier than babies who are not.
Confident Parents. A large part of feeling confident as a parent is the ability to read our babies’ cues successfully. Loving Caregivers. Baby carriers are a great bonding tool for parents or caregivers. Cuddling up close in the sling is a wonderful way to get to know the baby in your life, and for the baby to get to know you!
Comfort and Convenience. Hands free for mom while she can carry on with daily tasks.
