It’s no secret how passionate we are about babywearing—it’s why we do what we do! But we also know that our friend network continues to grow (and for that we are so grateful!) and, within that group are new friends who may be trying to decide if babywearing is right for them or who are new visitors to our page.
If this describes you, welcome! We’re so happy you’re here and thought we’d celebrate your arrival with a sort of Babywearing: 101 blog where we highlight 5 activities that are benefitted while babywearing. We think you might be surprised at what made the list!
There is nothing quite like the freedom babywearing provides when you’re in and out of shops. Gone are the days of navigating tightly stocked stores with a big stroller or being forced to leave it outdoors as you move through the racks.
Baby wearing allows you to keep baby close and both hands free so you can shop comfortably.
Is it a stretch to consider baby’s developmental growth an activity? Perhaps, but we think this is important enough to make the list.
When you wear your little love up close to you, you are naturally more responsive to their movements, coos, and cries. When baby is vocal, you’re better able to hear and respond, providing valuable feedback to your baby that supports developmental growth.
The closer baby is, the more attentive you can be…all of which builds critical connections for developmental growth.
Nursing is SO easy when you’re baby wearing. The back part of our slings can easily be brought up over baby’s head offering privacy if you want it, and baby is literally right there in perfect position for feeding.
It should go without saying that nursing moms should be supported however they choose to nurse. Covered up or not, nursing is beautiful, and no one should feel pressured to feed their baby any other way than what feels natural to them.
Taking care of home chores is infinitely easier when carrying your baby, as it allows you to keep your wee babe close while still having use of both hands.
You can tidy up while still attending to baby’s every need. That’s a win/win in our book.
Walking is such a fantastic form of exercise, and babywearing lets you go out for a walk or a hike with baby in tow, without worrying about whether the terrain is stroller friendly.
Hit the trails in the mountains. Enjoy a stroll along the beach. Snuggle that baby close and point out all the magic there is to see in this big, wide world.
And there you have it—five activities that benefit from babywearing. If you’re looking for your first sling (or just want to upgrade your current model), stop by our online store where we have tons of beautifully crafted slings that you and your baby will love.
Wear those babies while you can, mamas and papas—this season goes more quickly than you think.

Author Marcie Macari had this to say about childbirth...
“Birth is an opportunity to transcend. To rise above what we are accustomed to, reach deeper inside ourselves than we are familiar with, and to see not only what we are truly made of, but the strength we can access in and through birth.”
The process of shuttling new life into this world is nothing short of miraculous, and the transformations and adjustments that take place within our bodies to make this happen are breathtaking.
