Today marks the beginning of International Babywearing Week, which runs from October 1st through October 7th. The week is to observe, promote, celebrate and advocate for the benefits of babywearing. Because babywearing was an absolute blessing during my daughter’s newborn and infant stages, I’ve partnered with Baby K’Tan to talk about the benefits of babywearing using their Baby K’tan Active Baby Carrier.
What is the Baby K’tan Baby Carrier?
The Baby K’tan Baby Carrier is not your average carrier. The Baby K’tan carrier, although it looks like a baby wrap, and provides all of the positions and benefits of one, it isn’t a wrap at all. With its snug t-shirt-like fit and patented double-loop design, it allows you to wear your baby without any wrapping. This is great for first-timers since wraps can be confusing and a bit frustrating. and all you have to do is slip it on like you would your favorite t-shirt. Moms, we live in them during the first few months because they’re the easiest piece of clothing to put on.
Baby K’tan Carrier Wraps are available in four (4) different styles: Baby K’tan Original, Baby K’tan Breeze, Baby K’tan Active, and Baby K’tan Organic.
Each carrier is affordably priced at $49 – $59. The carriers can be purchased here: http://www.babyktan.com, Target or Amazon.
Top Five Favorite Benefits of Babywearing
Being able to keep my baby close to me after a long day of work helped us to bond and sort of makeup for the “lost” time during the day. Plus, skin-to-skin action is important for increasing prolactin levels for breastfeeding moms, which means an improved
2. Soothing & Comforting
Babies who are worn are happier, cry less and experience increased development. During the newborn phase, babies still seek the warmth and comfort of moms womb. Babywearing offers that by keeping baby close to mom’s body. Mom’s breathing helps calm them as they drift away into sleep or ease cries.
3. Discreet Breastfeeding
Babywearing and breastfeeding go hand in hand. In addition to helping to increase moms milk supply, babywearing has other benefits for breastfeeding moms. As a mom who breastfed for 2.5 years, being able to discreetly breastfeed while my daughter was in her carrier was the greatest thing ever.
4. Keeping Strangers At Bay
Babies with their chunky cute faces are hard to resist. It seems like everyone wants to pinch their cheeks, touch their hair or even try and kiss them. Babywearing has saved me many times from unsolicited touches from strangers. When worn, I love that my baby is close to me, protected and covered.
Babies are a lot of work, now pile on working full-time and taking care of household duties. You need all hands on deck, which babywearing offers. Once you are wearing your baby, your hands are free for you to get things done.
How has babywearing helped you bond with your baby and meet the demands of everyday parenthood?
