We heard it a thousand times before, people constantly telling you that carrying a baby too much will spoil them. Our parents, grandparents, confinement lady, caregiver said it all the time, but is it true? The simple answer is NO. Infants need constant comfort and attention as a foundation to grow physically, intellectually, and emotionally. Research has shown that contrary to the popular myth, carrying your baby is natural and it is impossible for parents to spoil a newborn by giving too much attention to them. So, the only attention you are giving too much are those who believes in this myth.
Benefits of babies being carried (babywear), to name a few:
- Warmth and security comfort
- Foster closeness and strengthen the bond
- Promotes positive baby development, physically and mentally
- Allows convenience and mobility by being hands-free
- Boost milk production by being in constant close contact with baby
- Convenience of breast feeding on the go discreetly
- Reduces stress for the baby and yourself
- Decrease risks of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) and flat-head syndrome
Babywearing started way before we know of its existence where natural materials like leaves, bark, even animal skin were used as a carrier. Fast forward to now, fortunate enough, carriers and slings is made from comfortable material where it is lightweight and breathable. Thank God for the companies that made babywearing versatile. We can carry our baby with so much ease, support and be mobile at the same time.
Generally, babies that are being carried are happier. Aside from the close bond and warmth, they cry and fuss lesser, studies have shown. You have been there; babies cry the second you put them down. It is only natural for them to want to be carried, even if it is all the time because they are new to the world and they depend on you for everything, especially warmth and comfort. To others, you are a person but to your baby, you are their world. So, don’t be afraid you will spoil them because it is impossible. Carry them, cuddle them. Carrying is human. Carrying is love and no one can take it away from you.
