Baby Carriers

The transition to life outside the womb can be a major adjustment for a newborn baby, and it is vital for the first 3 months of the baby's life to be secure and comfortable to ensure the best possible long-term benefits.

By choosing a wrap baby carrier, you can be confident that your baby will have a gentle transition into the outside world. Carrying your baby in this manner ensures a close relationship between you and your baby and is one of the most popular and intimate benefits of this carrying method.

Research has confirmed that babies who are worn in a carrier wrap cry less than those not offered supplemented carrying, because babies connect so closely with parents, and are supportively cradled from head to toe.

The Hug-a-Bub baby carrier wrap also has benefits for you, as a parent. Physiotherapists recommend it, and midwives recommend it. Why? Because while giving all the sensory benefits for infant development that face-to-face carrying provides, it doesn't put unnecessary strain on the shoulders, back and neck.

The baby carrier wrap is the best for newborns. It helps ensure that the baby's metabolism, including breathing, temperature and heart rates are all influenced through the power of touch, which affects newborn stability and mother-infant attachment.

Oxytocin may be released during skin-to-skin contact, leading to a more content baby who sleeps better. For you, the mother, having the best baby wrap carrier for a newborn baby can help balance hormones, allow for easy breastfeeding, and make postnatal depression less likely.

With practice, the Hug-a-Bub wrap becomes very easy to use, and can be tied even more simply than tying a shoelace. The baby wrap carrier video shows this simple tying technique, and a little patience is well rewarded.

Once you have mastered the skill to tie what is the most supportive carrier, you'll be able to enjoy all its many benefits. Please refer to the Hug-a-Bub videos and written instructions, and you'll soon be showing off your Hug a Bub expertise to your friends.

You, as the mum or dad, are the expert on your child. Finding and using the best baby carrying method will promote intimacy with your baby, promote attachment parenting, help your baby sleep better and give your beautiful intuition a helping hand.
