1 - Need of contact
The need of contact for a newborn is one of their primary needs, such as eating, drinking, breathing, and it can be satisfied with babywearing. The contact "heart to heart" create intimacy with the little one, it helps to establish a profound relationship with daddy and gives mummy a natural and physiological continuation of pregnancy. Newborns slings and baby carriers are the best solution to satisfy the profound emotional needs of both parents and kids, as well as to the necessity of freedom of movement of the carrier.
2 - A balanced growth
Carrying a newborn with a baby sling or carrier protects them from too many external stimuli, which are "filtered" by mum or dad. Baby's solar plexus, their area of emotions, is protected; the movements of the newborn in the sling help their physical development. The feeling of security given to the kid is fundamental in the development of their own image and of their autonomous personality.
3 - Breastfeeding
The contact of a newborn with their mum, granted by the use of a baby carrier especially within their first weeks of life, helps to increase milk's production, by fostering the growth of oxytocin (love hormone) and consequently of prolactin. Moreover, thanks to a baby sling or carrier, mum is able to comfortably breastfeeding, even when they don't find a proper place.
4 - Thermoregulatory function
During the very first weeks after birth, newborns are still not able to regulate autonomously their own body temperature. Being in contact over a long period with mum or dad's body in a sling or a carrier, fosters the newborn's thermoregulatory function, which is essential to stabilize their body temperature.
5 - Baby colic and their persistent crying
Baby colic is very hard and frustrating for parents, struggling to give their baby some relief and to calm down their persistent crying. Studies by experts and pediatricians show that baby colic treatment can be fostered effectively by carrying babies in a sling or baby carrier during daytime, even while sleeping.
6 - Connecting with Daddy
The bond between a mother and her kid is very profound and it establishes even before giving birth to the baby. The relationship between a dad and his little one, instead, is not so immediate and taken for granted as with mum since the very first days of a newborn's life. Thanks to babywearing carriers, dads can have a constant and prolonged contact with their baby, who learn to recognize dad's smell and sound of voice by cuddling on their chest.
7 - Beddy-bye
Baby carriers are very helpful to make the baby fall asleep thanks to these essential elements: closeness and contact with mummy or daddy, the heat of their body and the thermoregulatory function, the heartbeat and the movements rocking the baby, and the sense of nurturing and protection felt. During daytime, a baby sling helps the sleep of the newborns, improving its quality and its length.
8 - Versatility and comfort
The main advantages of our baby carriers for newborns are versatility and comfort, as well as the small volume they have when folded. A baby sling or a baby carrier suits every place in which a stroller would be uncomfortable and it can be used both indoor and outdoor, in every season. When a caregiver carries their baby, they can change several positions, which ensure comfort for a longer period of use. A baby carrier suits perfectly newborns' small dimensions and it adapts to the growth of the baby, who can be carried up to 18 kilos (39 lbs).
What if they say you're spoiling your baby?
Does the baby carried in a baby sling get spoiled? Will they learn to walk late? Will they be less independent?
These fears come from baseless prejudices surviving from the cultural heritage of the 60s, years during which there was a low-contact parenting.
A real need
Contact, warmth, reassurance: several studies show these elements help babies to grow up self-confident and to become resolute parents, by giving them emotional stability for their future.
Evolution and adaptability
The way a caregiver carry their baby, as well as the positions adopted, the frequency and the reasons to do it, will change over time and will adapt to the different growth phases.
