There are so many benefits to wearing baby; they can be close to mom, mom can be close to baby, they can feel your warmth, smell your smell, hear your heartbeat and it feels just like it felt like to be in utero. But it is important to remember that not all babies want to be born, and not all mom want to wear babies. Some babies really need a lot of space, like my son, who wanted to move his legs and arms all the time, and some babies like to be close and confined and cuddled like my daughter. If you have a colicky baby or a baby with reflux, it can feel good to be so close to mom all the time and the jiggling helps them to digest. Wearing babies can be a great alternative to keeping them confined in the car seats that swings and contraptions all the time. It's a great way to get around with baby, and if a baby will tolerate it for a long periods of time, they can also nap in the sling when you are out running errands.
