A Note On Baby Wearing
Baby wearing, which is the ancient practice of carrying a baby in a sling or carrier, has become increasingly popular in recent years. It offers numerous benefits for both the baby and the caregiver, including:
Promotes bonding: Baby wearing allows you to be in close physical contact with the baby, which promotes bonding and attachment. The baby feels secure and comforted by the your presence.
Provides a sense of security: Being held in a carrier or sling provides a sense of security for the baby. They can hear your heartbeat, feel your body warmth, and smell your scent, which can help to soothe them and reduce crying.
Promotes cognitive development: When a baby is carried in a carrier or sling, they are exposed to a variety of sights, sounds, and smells. This can help to stimulate their senses and promote cognitive development.
Provides convenience: Carrying a baby in a carrier or sling allows the you to have your hands free, which makes it easier to carry out everyday tasks or attend to other little ones.
- Promotes physical development: Baby wearing promotes healthy physical development by allowing the baby to assume a natural and comfortable position, with their hips and legs in the correct “M” position. This can help to prevent hip dysplasia and other postural problems. Our carriers are approved as “hip healthy” by The International Hip Dysplasia Institute.
Overall, baby wearing offers numerous benefits for both the baby and the caregiver. Minima was designed to not only support this philosophy but to allow you to express your style too, we believe there’s never a need to compromise!
