A special connection
Carrying your baby is something very special. Many mothers express their feelings of carrying their baby something they don't want to let go of very soon. It feels unique to carry your own baby and to feel the close proximity. Carrying mothers also often describe their everyday life as simpler and more practical.
Babies are born to be carried. This can be seen, for example, in the fact that babies automatically adopt the so-called squat position as soon as they are lifted. In the squat position, the knees are spread up and the thighs 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 and cognitive skills than those who lie down a lot. Because when babies are carried, they see much more of the environment and what is happening around them. Through the many stimuli, the brain is extra stimulated and promotes motor and cognitive development.
