Baby Carriers, Wraps and Slings
As worn by Megan Gale!
The 38-year-old model and first time mum shared a picture of herself
on Instagram with newborn son River in a Hug-a-Bub®. She said trying
out the Hug-a-Bub was "like learning how to do origami" but "once you
have it on and bub inside OH MY GOD". "Such a relief and a load off my
shoulders, arms, and back. Also I have my hands freed up to get more
stuff done #wishidtrieditearlier". She said the Hug-a-Bub was "almost
like having him in my tummy again". She added that it was "the perfect
way for busy mums to multi-task".
Hug-a-Bubs® Are Changing Lives
Carrying your baby as you start your life together, if only for the first 3 months of her life will have profound long-term benefits for you both. The closeness and security that a Hug-a-Bub® brings makes the transitional weeks of bonding with your baby much easier, particularly for new mothers.
The Hidden Power of Touch
Did you know that the power of touch affects newborn stability and the quality of mother-infant attachment? Smelling mother, feeling the touch of mother's skin and hearing mother's heartbeat all help to regulate your baby's system, including temperature, heart and respiration rates.
Skin-to-skin contact increases oxytocin, that yummy hormone that gets released when we're in love. And so babies who are carried are more content, less fussy and colicky, settle quicker and sleep more deeply.
And for mother, having baby against your body helps balance your hormones, making breastfeeding easier and post-natal depression less likely.
You Are The Expert On Your Baby
As a mum who carries her baby you will come to learn that you are the expert on your child. You are equipped to understand every cry and meet every need. Your intuition is your greatest tool and it becomes stronger when you give birth.
