BABYWHATTING?????

Babywearing (V): is the practice of wearing or carrying a baby in a sling or in another form of carrier. Babywearing has been practiced for centuries around the world. In the industrialized world, babywearing has gained popularity in recent decades

Benefits of babywearing include:

  • Mothers’ oxytocin is increased through physical contact with the infant, leading to a more intimate maternal bond, easier breastfeeding, and better care, thus lowering the incidence of postpartum depression  in the mother;[2] similarly, the father carrying the baby has benefits for the paternal bond.
  • Infants who are carried are calmer because all of their primal/survival needs are met. The caregiver can be seen, heard, smelled, touched, tasted, provide feeding and the motion necessary for continuing neural development gastrointestinal and respiratory health and to establish balance (inner ear development) and muscle tone is constant.[]
  • Infants are more organized. Parental rhythms (walking, heartbeat, etc.) have balancing and soothing effects on infants.
  • Infants are "humanized” earlier by developing socially. Babies are closer to people and can study facial expressions, learn languages faster and be familiar with body language.
  • Independence is established earlier.
  • Attachment between child and caregiver is more secure.

Seriously?

Yep.
