I started babywearing with my first DD when she was a few weeks old, and I found it was the only way to calm her down and get her to nap.  BWing with my new little man has been a lifesaver.  Having an almost 2 year old and newborn means I constantly need a free hand :)

With my first, I wore her because it was fun, and I liked being close to her.  With the second, I wore him out of necessity!!

I love the benefits of babywearing...and it goes along with everything that "feels right"!

I heard that the time after birth is really a 4th trimester and having baby close to the heart outside the body is a part of the process to nurture baby into the world. By carrying him/her close to their bodies, Mommy and Daddy both are forming that bond with their lil love as well as the lil one feels safe and cozy!

I wore my daughter because I loved her more than anything in the world and wanted her in my arms as much as possible - simple decision.  After multiple miscarriages, I really treasured my baby.  Babywearing soothed her, helped with breastfeeding, regulated her body temperature when she was sick, but it also soothed ME and created a wonderful post-partum experience!  It was the greatest thing I've ever done, and I'm still wearing her at 2 and a half years old!!

 

That was the reason in my heart for babywearing.  The reason in my HEAD was due to working with young children, as a kindergarten teacher, and noticing the sensory needs that continue to grow more and more with each new class as the years pass.   It's scary how many of these young children are so sensory deprived and engage in seeking behaviors, not to mention lacking in empathy and feeling connected to others.  I wonder often if the containers are responsible for an entire generation of kids who cannot organize themselves in a sensory and social/emotional manner.  Babywearing is hope for the future!

I started wearing my babies because I wanted to cut out the middle-man.  Why was my snuggly baby in carseat bucket and I was carrying that heavy bucket?  Why was she in a stroller and I was holding that and not her?  Parents should hold their babies not plastic, it just seemed natural.
