Hug a Bub Baby Wraps and Slings

Hug a Bub Baby Wraps and Slings

Babywearing is an instinctive parenting style where a baby is held close to the parent or carer in a baby carrier or baby sling. It allows a busy parent or carer the freedom to continue their daily routine while providing the most nourishing and desirable environment for their child. Baby carriers and slings have been used for hundreds or thousands of years in a diverse range of cultures.

What are the benefits?

Happier baby- carried babies cry less.

Australian research has shown that babies who are carried in baby wraps or baby slings cry (on average) 43% less overall and 54% less during the evening hours.

Improves baby’s development

Baby slings and wraps not only promotes the best intimate connection between parent and baby, it’s hailed as one of the most important factors in the healthy physical, intellectual and social development of infants.

Touch does so much.

According to behavioural psychologist Sharon Heller PhD, touch is “our silent and most potent language” helping parent/infant communication and strengthening their bond.

Better sleep

Frequently carried babies fall asleep quickly and will usually sleep deeper and for longer, cosy and secure in their baby wraps.

A better parent

The close proximity of the carried baby enables parents to respond to “non-crying” signals, which results in less frustration and stress and, most of all, less crying.

A happier parent

Babywearing has been found to calm fussy babies, helping to decrease the occurrence of post-natal depression. [citation]

Hands-free love

Allows parents to tend to their infant while being hands free, enabling them to cook dinner, garden, shop, exercise or play with other children.

Discreet breastfeeding on the go.

Wearing your baby in a baby sling or baby carrier allows you to feed your baby anytime and everywhere.

Safe Babywearing

For advice on safe babywearing practices, or on which baby sling or carrier is right for you, consult your trained babywearing advisor, trained stockist or health care professional such as your GP, midwife, physiotherapist or chiropractor.
