We may have the means to separate ourselves from our young, but biologically, we weren't meant to and it still upsets the baby and the mother.

Private Babywearing Consultation

  Babywearing has been a huge part of my parenting journey. I started wearing my daughter 15 years ago for convenience after I realized I either needed to grow 2 more arms or figure out how to live my life while holding a baby! To my surprise, I fell in love with it almost instantly and so did my baby. I went on to train and certify through the Center for Babywearing Studies so I could share this wonderful practice with other parents and caregivers. I enjoy watching new parents discover the many benefits of wearing their baby, such as:

A happy baby

In a study published in the journal Pediatrics, researchers found that babywearing for three hours a day reduced infant crying by 43 percent overall and 54 percent during evening hours.

A healthy baby

When a baby is worn he is in tune to his caregivers breathing, heartbeat and movements. This allows him to regulate his own physical responses. Research also shows premature babies who are held and touched gain weight faster and are

overall healthier than babies who are not.

A happy parent

Being a new parent can feel overwhelming on a good day! How do you know he’s hungry? Why is he crying? What does it mean when he makes that sound? When you wear your baby you can’t help but become finely attuned to his movements, facial expressions, gestures and sounds. As we begin to learn to respond to baby’s needs appropriately and before they cry their trust in us and our own confidence increases. This creates a loving cycle of positive interaction that deepens the mutual attachment between parent and child.
