The Benefits of Baby Wearing

*This is not a sponsored post

Yesterday I received my Boba Wrap in the mail and so far, Little Bit seems to like it. It's very comfortable and what I love about it is that I could actually have it on and ready for her all day if I wanted. Or suppose I am driving somewhere and I intend on having her in it when we reach our destination, well I can even leave the house with it on me and then I can just slip her in once we get there. I can't wait to use it more and give you a much more in-depth review. I will say that the first time I used it I tied it right, and the next time I must have not had it right. So it will take some practice!

I wanted to share the pamphlet that came with it about Baby Wearing. I was very intrigued about what I read regarding baby wearing. All statements were taken from research that was done about the benefits of baby wearing and all research is listed on their site and with the product.

Baby Wearing is great for your baby because:
{from the Boba Family Website}

Carried babies…
  • Cry less. 43% less overall and 54% less during evening hours. 
  • Are Healthier. They gain weight faster, have better motor skills, coordination, increased
    muscle tone, and sense of balance. 
  • Get a better view of the world. Babies pushed in strollers or lugged around in car
    seats only get to see the adult world at knee level.
  • Become Independent Faster. Making them confident and less clingy. 
  • Sleep Better. They fall asleep quicker and sleep for longer periods of time. 
  • Learn More. Not over stimulated, but calm and alert, observing and taking in the
    world around them. 
  • Are Happier. They feel loved and secure. 
but it’s also great for you.  Read on.
