I was so worried the first time I had Cora. And being a makeup artist I was scared to lose the fashion-forward person I was. All the shows that concerned mummy makeovers had me believe that it was not possible for me to be a good mummy and look good. But I am glad that I was all wrong.
When I dress well and be myself I become a better wife and mum. I can now treat motherhood like a hobby, not a burden. I love being fashionable, I love being a mum. In fact, Babywearing makes it possible for me to do both in more than one way.
From the fashion statement, most of the mums do not get into babywearing. I either didn’t. I found it incredibly necessary when I started babywearing for survival. When I finally came to know how amazing it was, I was able to find many excellent sling and carriers to keep my baby comfortable in style.
The reason why we have babies is that there are baby cuddles. I could be right. Or, maybe I am wrong. But think about it anyway. That squishy delicious roll, those sweet baby smells, and all the good things about bouncing babies; they all make you want to become the best mother that you can be.
Being a mother means you are able to give your baby all the kisses you want when he or she is right below your chin. When it comes to health benefits, having a heart to heart contact helps keep them off flu viruses and cold. Overall, there is always a sweet feeling when we keep them close; having their little arms and legs wrapped around us and their small noses buried right on our chests.
Top 5 Benefits of Babywearing
If you aren’t babywearing, you’re not doing it wrong, but you’re not doing right. You no longer need to be reminded that it is a fact that most babies want to be held when they are still infants. Being a mother, I know babies are not yet used to the ‘exposed space’. More often than not, they only like to be snuggled or swaddled.
1. Baby Carriers for Better Sleep
Whenever you wear your baby, you help him or her sleep more comfortably if not soundly. They tend to have their sleeping cycle developed when they sleep comfortably for long hours.
2. Baby Carrier for Mom’s Productivity
Having your baby in a carrier or a sling also makes it possible for you to carry on with chores while your baby is asleep. For example, I would do dishes, prep dinner, and change the laundry with my snuggle nestled on my chest. Since washing dishes is a bit tricky, I usually find my baby and I all wet while at the sink. Sometimes it’s worth it, especially for the clean kitchen.
3. Baby Carrier Helps Moms Get More Done
The best thing about a baby carrier is that it helps you to get more things done and take off to places with much ease. It is a difficult task to fit a stroller where you are off to anywhere really. In fact, the worst enemies for new mums are the staircases and doorways when pushing around the four-wheelers.
4. Baby Carrier for Close Contact
The other thing you should know is that when babies are worn they are closer to the eye level. What better way to interact with your kid than to use a baby carrier to have them looking at you and you looking at them all the time?
In the first stages, a baby’s eyesight is not very strong. Therefore, putting him or her at a higher level provides a better interaction opportunity. In addition, the carrier is safe as it hinders people from touching the baby because whenever you wear the baby they are not exposed.
5. Baby Carriers Help with Nursing
Nursing in the carrier was the most life-changing thing I actually never experienced until my baby sister came along. Sometimes I wonder how much more I would have experience with a baby Cora if I were into this trick.
It is definitely discrete and convenient when in public places. It also was a relief on my back and neck. Just like the LILLE baby carriers, most baby carriers for plus size mothers are designed in a way that they can lessen strains on your back. They are adjustable and comfortable hence easy to use.
This carrier also allows you to switch to a back or side carry when your baby grows into a toddler. It therefore must be a great way to keep active and strong with your child. In addition, carriers are also great ways to allow grandparents and dads to engage in the bonding fun too.
