Benefits of Babywearing

Posted by Addpetizer Team on

We love babywearing for all the closeness, the cuddles, AND the hands-free mobility. But did you know that it also offers scientifically-proven benefits to babies and their parents? Here are just a few of the many reasons wearing baby is good for you and your little ones!

 

1 / LESS CRYING

Wearing baby for 3 hours a day can reduce its crying by up to 54%.

2 / EASIER TRANSITION TO BABY’S 4TH TRIMESTER

Babywearing mimics the womb, helping babies feel more comfortable as they adjust to their new environment.

3 / ENCOURAGES BONDING

The physical contact of babywearing increases nurturing behaviors and secures attachment. Plus, it helps parents learn baby’s cues and elevates their confidence.

4 / PROMOTES COGNITIVE DEVELOPMENT

It’s easy to talk and engage baby in their surroundings when they are being carried. And this helps develop their linguistic skills, too.

5 / IT’S GOOD FOR BABY’S HEALTH

Babywearing helps prevent flat head syndrome, reduces reflux symptoms (which also lowers the risk of Otitus Media, a leading cause of deafness), improves digestion, and keeps germs out of reach.

6 / REDUCES REFLUX

Infants in an upright position showed fewer reflux-related symptoms, like vomiting, coughing, or breathing problems. And reduced reflux also lowers the risk of Otitus Media, a leading cause of deafness.

7 / CALM & LEARNING THROUGH MOTION

Infants carried by a walking parent are soothed by a physiological calming response, and this quiet alert state is good for learning, too.

8 / SUPPORTS PHYSICAL DEVELOPMENT

While babywearing, the tactile stimulation can increase weight gain and bone density.

9 / HELPS KEEP THE BLUES AWAY

Mothers who gave their newborns skin-to-skin contact for 5 hours daily in the first week, and 2 hours daily during the first month, reported significantly lower scores on a post-partum depression scale.

10 / SUPPORTS PHYSICAL GROWTH IN PRETERM INFANTS

Preemies whose mothers practiced Kangaroo Mother Care (skin-to-skin contact and babywearing) gained more weight and grew more in size.

11 / IMPROVES BREASTFEEDING SUCCESS

Studies have shown that mothers who used a baby carrier for at least 1 hour per day during the first month of baby’s life had significantly higher breastfeeding rates at 3 and 5 months.

12 / ENCOURAGES WELL-BEING OF MOTHER AND BABY

The warmth and touch of babywe aring stimulate oxytocin release, which produces anti-stress-like effects like lowered blood pressure.
