Especially in the beginning there are many things that you need for your baby. You're probably also asking yourself whether a pram or a baby carrier is right for you? This blog article explains.
A special feeling
Carrying your own baby is something very special. Many mothers report a wearing comfort that they don't want to do without quickly. It feels unique to carry your own child and to feel the intimate closeness. Carrying mothers often describe their everyday life as simpler and more practical.
Babies are born as babies. This can be seen, for example, in the fact that babies automatically assume the so-called squat-spread position as soon as they are picked up. In the spread-squat position, the knees are spread at a 90-degree angle. This position is also called the M position.
The rounded back is also a sign that small children can be carried ideally. When carried in a baby carrier, the back is strengthened, which further develops the double S shape of the back.
Motor and cognitive development
Studies show that children who are carried develop better motor skills and cognitive skills than when they lie down a lot. Because when babies are carried, they see a lot more of the environment and what is happening around them. The brain is extra stimulated by the many stimuli and promotes motor and cognitive development.
Many babies fall asleep particularly quickly in a baby carrier because a baby carrier gives them a safe and protected feeling. The little ones are snuggled up very close to mum or dad and can follow their movements. This creates security and strengthens the bond between parents and child. Compared to a stroller, the baby is much closer to you and you can better perceive and address your child's needs.
Easier everyday life
On the train, in the supermarket or in the hallway - everywhere it is tight with a stroller. By carrying your baby, stroller obstacles are a thing of the past. Everyday life with several children is also easier with two hands.
Baby-wearing has great advantages - here they are again at a glance:
- Special wearing comfort: for mum, dad and child
- Stronger bond: the baby is close to mom or dad. This creates security and strengthens the bond.
- Healthy development: the hip joint and the back are promoted by the ergonomic spread-squat position.
- Respond better: Parents can perceive and address the needs of their child more easily.
- Cry Less: Studies have shown that babies who are carried cry less.
- Pram obstacles are a thing of the past: stairs, tracks and so on are no problem. Even everyday life with more children in two hands easier.
