Book Description

March 2005
If someone told you they knew a secret to help your baby sleep better, cry less, and learn better, you would certainly be interested...

Babywearing, the practice of carrying baby in a soft carrier close to our body as we go about our daily business, is parenting's best kept secret.

Good things happen when we wear our babies. Babies who are worn cry less, are more calm and content, sleep more peacefully, nurse better, gain weight better, enjoy better digestion, and develop better.

Babywearing benefits parents! It enhances parent-baby bonding, is practical, facilitates breastfeeding, helps working parents reconnect, and makes transitions from one caregiver to another easier. But most importantly, it allows you to meet your baby's need to be held while allowing you to meet your need to get things done!

Anyone can wear baby - mom, dad, sister, brother, grandparents, baby sitters, and day care workers. The more baby is worn the happier baby is. And, a happy baby makes a family happy.

In this book you will:
*Learn about the benefits of babywearing.
*Hear from babywearers all over the country.
*Learn how to choose and use the carrier that is right for you.
*Learn how to make your own baby carrier.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Babywearing Resource! Feb. 4 2006
By J. Mehl - Published on Amazon.com
I am a mom, doula, and an Attachment Parenting International (API) leader, so I was thrilled that a babywearing book was finally on the market. What an inspirational, supportive resource for babywearing. Well organized, with wonderful pictures to teach you how to wear your baby or toddler in many different positions and with the various soft slings/carriers/wraps on the market. Lists the numerous benefits and history behind babywearing. Great resources listed in the back of the book. Any new parent or veteran of babywearing will cherish this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book but needs updating March 6 2010
By Jackie C - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have been wearing my now 16 month old since birth and have used several different types of carriers. I enjoy learning new things about babywearing which is why I purchased this book. I believe the author did a great job explaining the benefits of babywearing and showing in detail how to use different carriers. I do belive however that this book needs a little updating because I noticed there are some carriers that were recommended that no longer exist. Also the author recommends the Baby Bjorn and similar type carriers which can be bad for babys spine and hips because they put pressure on the baby's crotch instead of having baby froggied or in a sitting position this is also true for foward facing carries which are recommended. And finally the author says that it is okay to do a back carry in a stretchy wrap which is dangerous. Please if you want to carry your baby on your back do not use a stretchy wrap, get a woven wrap or other type of carrier.

All in all it was a good read. I just believe that those few things need to be updated for the safety and comfort of parents and babies.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must for New Parents April 5 2006
By Erica K. Etelson - Published on Amazon.com
At last, a book that combines well-documented information about the physical and emotional benefits of keeping your baby close along with practical instructions on how to actually use those tricky wraps and slings. This is the book I wish I had before my first child was born. Great photos remind the reader that babywearing is not just for able-bodied moms--moms in wheelchairs, dads and other caregivers can all put on a sling or carrier and give that baby the unconditional love and affection she needs to thrive. A perfect gift for any expecting parent.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Book for Anyone and Everyone who Care for Infants and Toddlers! Jan. 18 2007
By Aradia Paganus - Published on Amazon.com
The book opens with a brief biography of the author, and her into medical school and to babywearing. Then the book is organized into every style of cloth carrier, where to buy, how to make, what to use and of course- detailed directions to using them (with pics!) (With instructions for adapting carries for newborns to 2-3 year olds!)

I strongly reccommend this book for all new mums, dads, nannies, grandparents- EVERYONE who will be caring for a little one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolute best! Oct. 21 2006
By Lynette W. Strickland - Published on Amazon.com
What a wonderful resource for parents wanting to bond with their children. I am a mother of 7 and an advocate of babywearing/breastfeeding and this book is a must-have for any new or prospective parent. Great baby shower idea: give this book and a gift certificate for their choice of baby carrier...they'll thank you from the bottom of their hearts!
