Choosing The Best Baby Wrap
It’s not that difficult to see why moms and dads love wearing their babies in slings and baby wraps. The convenience of being able to do various tasks during the day, while using both hands, is by far one of the best things about “baby wearing.” Mothers also love the added workout they’ll get when wearing their baby. Just by adding the little bundle of joy to their body for two hours will burn an extra 300 calories. Who can say no to that?
There are many benefits of wearing a sling, but the benefits are even greater for a baby who is suffering from colic. When parents start to wear a baby who has colic, the positioning of the sling is great for milk and stomach acid to stay settled and gas rises up and out of their tiny body. The positioning of the baby in a sling promotes the development of proper leg and hip development and eases pressure from the back of the head, when a carrier is used. In addition to all that has been mentioned, wearing your baby will give you a wonderful bonding experience that you will remember for the rest of your life.
When choosing a sling, selecting incorrectly can pose a risk for infants. The most important thing to remember is making sure it fits correctly. You’ll want to make sure the material and design are both high quality.
Buying a sling that comes with adequate safety instructions is one of the most important things to remember. When worn incorrectly, your baby could be at risk by having their airways obstructed, or they could fall out.
There are many varieties of materials that slings can be made from. If the weather is colder where you live, you may want to invest in a material that’s thick and insulating, if the climate is warm, splurging on a sling that is made from a thin material that is breathable for your child would be best.
There are slings that are designed to be used throughout your baby’s life, and then there are slings that have more padding near the shoulder area to provide extra comfort. You want to buy a sling based on how often you will wear it and whether you want to wear it after your child is walking.
