The Benefits Of Having A Baby Carrier

With all the baby gear that you’re stockpiling for your bump or growing baby, it’s understandable to second guess if you should bother getting some things at all. That said, there are several key items that will quickly become your go-to must-haves, and we’re 99.9% sure that your baby carrier will become your new best friend.

There are many benefits of having a baby carrier:

  • Baby carriers can soothe baby and can help to stop tears
  • A baby carrier promotes good health (especially for premature babies and newborns)
  • It can help with cognitive learning
  • They’re great for emotional development and parent-baby bonding
  • Wearing a baby carrier can help to reduce postpartum depression (even if not strictly skin-to-skin contact)
  • Baby carriers make it a lot easier for you and bubs to move around
  • People will touch your baby less when out and about

While baby carriers are a personal choice, many parents have multiple options to take them through a baby’s different stages. Some may prefer not to use carriers in the early months, while others swear by slings and wraps that are easy to nurse in. In the initial months, a baby should be carried in front, facing inwards while they can face outwards once they can sit comfortably. Side and back carrying is possible with toddlers.

Just keep in mind baby carrier safety guidelines when choosing a carrier to fit you and your little one. When it comes to newborns and very young babies, it’s always best to think T.I.C.K.S.:

  • Tight: The sling should be tight with your baby positioned high and upright with head support. Loose fabric may cause your baby to slump down, restricting breathing. Just resist over-tightening the carrier across their back.
  • In view at all times: You should always be able to see your baby’s face, with their nose and mouth unobstructed by the sling and/or your body.
  • Close enough to kiss: Make sure that by tipping your head forward you can easily kiss the tip of your bub’s head.
  • Keep chin off the chest: Baby’s chin must be up and away from its body. Never let the baby curl with the chin down as this can restrict breathing. There should be a gap of about two fingers wide under their chin.
  • Supported back: It should be tight enough that there’s no gap between your baby and your body, but loose enough to slide your hand into the carrier.
