3 Tips for Baby Wearing

April 15, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 130

Baby wearing is a common challenge among new parents. Choosing the best type of carrier can sometimes be very frustrating, let alone the challenge of learning to use the carrier itself. Complicated as it may seem, particularly if you are dealing with a baby carrier that has a lot of fabric, baby wearing is not really that problematic. In fact, it could be very easy and rewarding once you get the hang of it. The problem is that most parents tend to either over think or under think baby wearing.

Here are some tips that can help you simplify baby wearing:

1. Attend local baby wearing meetings, or join their groups. These meetings can help and guide you in not only understanding the basics of wearing your baby, but also in picking the right baby carrier. Baby wearing groups have experienced baby wearers who can help you decide which style and type of baby carrier would best suits you and your baby. Furthermore, they can give you advice about the pros and cons of different types of baby carriers, which among these baby carriers are of good quality, and which brands are more cost-effective than the others. Importantly, baby wearing meetings provide techniques on how to use the carrier properly and effectively. Best of all is that you may be able to borrow carriers to try out before you buy.

2. Choose a baby carrier that you think would be the easiest to use. This task may be daunting because the sheer number of baby carrier brands are overwhelming, then add in styles and colors to make your decision more difficult. Baby carriers are not a one-size-fits-all type of accessory, so you will want to consider your personality, lifestyle and possible limitations. Some people hate back carriers because they can't see their babies, while others prefer this because their hands and front are completely free. Some people swear by baby hip carriers because they can connect with baby while still having at least one hand free, but others dislike this because of balance or shoulder issues.

3. It is advisable and highly suggested to choose a carrier of high quality. Make sure that the baby carrier will be safe to use for the baby by checking age and weight specifications. If the carrier has buckles, make sure they are firm and in tact. It is also advisable to check for brands of carriers with reviews from other wearers. Though it is not always a guarantee that these reviews are genuine, it is better than blindly buying a carrier. Check if the manufacturer has detailed instruction on how to use the carrier. You will also want to check and make sure that the carrier you're buying has not been recalled.

For brand new mothers, the idea of finding the perfect baby carrier may seem daunting, but once you have found your carrier and you have the hang of it, you will become like experienced baby wearing moms, for who the act of baby wearing is a habit that they don't give a second thought to. It is simply something that makes life easier.
