Why choose babywearing what are the benefits ?? Basically it’s Happy baby, Happy you! Simple. Babywearing makes life so much easier. Here at Sleepydust Slings we have seen people change the car to fit the new buggy, so much hassle… A baby carrier will generally fit in a handbag! We see people everyday struggle getting a buggy through a busy department store, or getting the often dirty or wet baby adapted trollies at supermarkets…. Why??? Just wear your baby!! Below we show you how you and your baby work so much better together using carriers.

Happy Baby. Babies love being in carriers and its proven they cry much less.

Family babywearing

Healthy Babies.  Premature babies and babies with special needs often enter the world with fragile nervous systems. When a baby rides in a sling attached to their mother, is in tune with the rhythm of her breathing, the sound of her heartbeat, and the movements his mother makes—walking, bending, and reaching. This stimulation helps them to regulate their own physical responses. Research has even shown that premature babies who are touched and held gain weight faster and are healthier than babies who are not. All of our baby carriers in stock at Sleepydust Slings are ergonomic for your babies hip and spine development and also support the wearers back.

Confident Parents. A large part of feeling confident as a parent is the ability to read our babies’ cues successfully. Holding our babies close in a sling allows us to become finely attuned to their movements, gestures, and facial expressions. Every time a baby is able to let us know that she is hungry, bored, or wet without having to cry, her trust in us is increased, her learning is enhanced, and our own confidence is reinforced. This cycle of positive interaction deepens the mutual attachment between parent and child, and is especially beneficial for mothers who are at risk for or suffering from postpartum depression.

Loving Caregivers. Baby carriers are a great bonding tool for fathers, grandparents, adoptive parents, babysitters, and other caregivers. Imagine a new father going for a walk with his baby in a sling. The baby isbecoming used to his voice, heartbeat, movements, and facial expressions, and the two are forging a strong attachment of their own. Baby carriers are beneficial for every adult in a baby’s life. Cuddling up close in the sling is a wonderful way to get to know the baby in your life, and for the baby to get to know you.
