Babywearing consultant

Babies that have just been born crave physical contact. Physical contact enables attachment and ensures that your child feels safe. From this safe haven, your baby will discover and get to know his or her surroundings. Babywearing facilitates these needs of your child.

How do you know if you have a proper sling or baby carrier? And is your baby safe in this sling or carrier? What should you pay attention to as a parent? Parents that have no or little experience with babywearing often have many such questions. These questions are understandable, since there are so many slings and baby carriers.

Five benefits of babywearingm

  • It is easy to keep your baby close for a long time.
  • Direct physical contact calms your baby and improves his or her sleep.
  • Babywearing can lead to a lower chance of reflux and colic.
  • You are better able to divide your attention between your baby and any other children.
  • Practical: your hands are empty.

Babywearing is safe

The babywearing consultant will come to your home. The content of the consultation is determined by your goals and the possibilities. She will teach you some basic principles and tricks and give you some advice that is not mentioned in a user manual or tutorial. She will teach you the proper way to make a secure tie and to wear your baby in an ergonomic and secure way. She is always available for questions, even if these questions arise after a consultation. She can teach you the following:

  • A type of baby wrapping called ‘front wrap cross carry’
  • Wraps: stretchy or woven
  • Ring sling
  • Mei Tai
  • Classic carriers
  • Backpack carriers
  • Double Hammock (with a woven cloth)
