Incorporating Babywearing Into Your Daily Routine

A day in the life of a babywearing parent can greatly differ from that of a parent who doesn’t use a baby carrier of any kind. Although some parents think that wearing their children will hinder or prevent them from getting things done, the opposite is actually true. Babywearing parents are actually able to get more done in a day since they are not stopped throughout the day by a fussy baby.
While sitting around the house holding your baby and attending to his every need isn’t practical, wearing your baby in a carrier can help you keep your little one content while you attend to other daily tasks at the same time.
When you choose to wear your child, you are able to:

  • Spend a larger amount of time with your child each day.
  • Stay in touch with your child’s changing needs throughout the day.
  • Include him or her in more aspects of your life and daily routine.

How Babywearing Can Make Your Day Easier

Household chores – When you choose to wear your child in a carrier, you can keep your baby close and comforted while you use your free hands to do laundry, make a phone call, prepare lunch or clean up around the house.

Caring for a toddler – Not only is babywearing beneficial to the child that you are wearing, but it also allows you to continue to care for and interactive with your older children throughout the day. In this sense, babywearing can make the adjustment to a new sibling much easier for older children.

Shopping or running errands – Choosing to wear your child in a carrier while you run multiple errands can be helpful since you don’t have to worry about unloading and reloading a stroller into the car.

BreastfeedingBabywearing makes it easier to breastfeed your little one throughout the day. Plus, your carrier or sling often doubles as a nursing cover so you can breastfeed discreetly with minimal effort.

Soothe a colicky baby – Wearing a colicky baby in a sling or another front carrier can help to reduce crying since the motion helps to soothe the baby and prevents overstimulation. When a child is carried in an upright position it allows for better digestion and reduces gas, which can also help to soothe an infant with colic.

Importance of Safety Precautions While Babywearing

While incorporating babywearing into your daily routine can definitely make things easier for you, you should always be sure to follow the necessary precautions to ensure that your little one is safe. Always check to ensure that your carrier is in good condition before placing your child in it, and be sure not to participate in any potentially dangerous activities while wearing your child. Our Baby Carrier Safety Guide can provide you with the information that you need to choose a safe carrier and how to wear it safely. 

In addition to being able to use a baby carrier throughout your daily routine, a baby carrier can also make it easier to travel with your little one.  Read more about babywearing while traveling in our article Traveling with a Carrier .
