Moms today are all about comfort and who can blame them when they are dealing with raising their little ones and running a household. With the stress of daily activities, the last thing a parent needs is to deal with a cumbersome baby carrier. Traditional baby carriers are often manufactured in a backpack like fashion with straps, buckles, ties and more. There is nothing wrong with these types of carriers but they can become uncomfortable over a period of hours.
The baby wrap (sometimes referred to as a baby sling) holds a ton of benefits for any busy mom or dad. First off baby wraps are simply made. They are created from sturdy fabrics and aren’t bogged down with hanging ties, buckles, etc. Baby wraps are also super versatile. Unlike the common baby carriers which can only be worn on either your back or front, you can position your baby in multiple ways with a baby wrap. Because baby wraps distribute your child’s weight more evenly, you don’t have the worry of nagging back pain after carrying your child for several hours. This is a huge relief, particularly for those parents who have existing lower back problems.
While it is easy to leave your infant in their crib or playpen while you are doing housework, many moms and dads prefer bonding with their infant as much as possible at this critical stage of their life. With this in mind, a typical baby carrier would not be as much help for toting your little one around the house. Due to the way a baby wrap allows you to hold your infant close to your body, you can make housework a breeze as you spend time with your baby at the same time. This is time well spent as you develop a closeness with your baby.
Many parents have even replaced their old baby carriers with the baby wrap when trekking around town. They have proven to be much more comfortable for both parent and child. Whether you are walking around a park or shopping for groceries, the trip can be all the more comfortable using a baby wrap versus a baby carrier.
If you are a fashionable parent, then you are in luck with a baby wrap. Because they are made from fabric and not much else, they can be made in a variety of colors. You may even find yourself purchasing several just as conversation pieces. Many baby wraps are created in eye catching colors and a variety of patterns. They are sure to stand out and many people will definitely take notice. Who says that you and your baby can’t be fashionable?
Baby wraps are also convenient to travel with. They fold up easily and store away in luggage without taking up much room if any. They are also easy to wash and can stand up to the daily wear and tear of regular use. If you have never tried a baby wrap or are weary about using one, ask other moms for their opinions about them. Many will say that they love using them.
