Why Babywearing?


Everyone loves holding babies, and no one loves holding your baby more than you and your partner.
Babywearing is not just about cuddles, it has lots of benefits both emotional and practical.
You, your baby, your other children and your partner all benefit from the practice.
Babywearing wraps and carriers are a convenient parenting and bonding tool that has both behavioural and cognitive benefits for your baby.
