Babywearing is the practice of keeping a baby or a toddler close and connected to your body as you engage in daily activities. This is through wearing them in any one of the varieties of baby carriers such as Wraps, Ring Slings, Meh Dai, Soft Structured Carrier, Onbuhimo and many others. Babywearing has been practiced for centuries among the different cultures from around the world.
As per Babywearing International, Babywearing is not about any particular parenting philosophy and it is not about any specific carrier. It can be practiced by any of caregivers including moms, dads, grandparents, siblings, nannies, nurses, doulas; in short, anyone who cares for a newborn, infant, or toddler.
