Why to carry
When carried correctly, the baby is closer to the pre-birth position and they also listen to the heart beat as they were used to. In the correct ergonomic position, the healthy development of hip joints is supported, painful tummy is relieved, and lactation is encouraged. Carrying is beneficial also for mothers – it helps with the involution of uterus, the maintaining of pelvic muscles, and improving physical condition after childbirth. A carrying parent has free hands, the baby is still under their control and parents can reach also the places hard to access. Moreover, the parent and baby produce hormone oxytocin when they are close to each other. That helps create the special bond between them.
