Some parents babywear because it makes life easier to keep a child close by. Some parents babywear for increased bonding. Some babywear because their child needs to be upright to help reflux be less severe. There are numerous reasons for wearing your baby.
Whatever your reasoning, babywearing is a wonderful tool for many parents. There are many types of carriers for all sorts of situations, and some have a steep learning curve, while others are fairly simple for first time users.
At Crunchy Mamas Worldwide we are happy to teach everything about babywearing, from the basics all the way up to advanced wrapping techniques. Most chapters have certified babywearing educators in our groups, but if not, local moms are happy to provide support and personal experiences/ techniques, and often point the way to some of the other fantastic babywearing groups out there, including Babywearing International chapters in your area. Crunchy Mamas Worldwide is a proud supporter of Babywearing International.
