Where do I stand with my conviction regarding ‘carrying’?

As humans, we have an inherent need for closeness and touch; a simple hug eases our insecurities and makes us feel cared for. A handshake gives us a feeling of acknowledgment and respect. When holding hands with our partner, we feel loved, accepted and safe.  Through touch, we connect with others and build strong relationships that contribute to our overall happiness. This need begins even before we are born, and its fulfillment is crucial to our healthy development, especially in the first months of life. Think about it...babies live inside the mother’s womb for nine months, where they get the closeness they need to survive. But what about once they are out of the womb?

How can a modern-day mother realistically give her baby the intimacy it craves so much? 

The answer is clearly babywearing! 
 
 ✅ In baby wearing, I believe that the most professionally-trained babywearing consultants will advocate the thighs being supported right into the knee pits into an M shape, with knees held higher than the bottom (nearer to an imaginary horizontal line out from the belly button).

 ✅ Physical loving contact is vital for human beings. It's necessary for normal physical, psychological and emotional development.

✅ It gives the baby the ultimate feeling of security and comfort.

✅ Our society need more love, more compassion, more kisses and more hugs. Babies need to be held, it soothes and calms, plus promotes milk production. It provides rest for both mommies and babies.

✅It’s something that is really important to understand because as a society there is still this huge stigma that when a parent carries their baby they are are mollicoddling their child and we’ve all heard the term “you will make that baby clingy.
