Have you tried babywearing before?

October 4, 2019

This is a featured giveaway

If you’re a parent, you know the true fact that babies love to be carried. And even more than that, babies just love to be held close. It’s a way that they find comfort and peace and feel loved, as well.

And as parents, sometimes our two hands just don’t have the ability to do it all. While you might want to carry around your little bundle of joy with you every step of the day, more than likely it’s just not possible. But the great news? This is where babywearing comes into play!

Did you know that over 30 million babies have been carried in BabyBjörn baby carriers? That is a huge number of babies that have found love and comfort on a daily basis. Plus, they feel the calmness from the rhythmic pattern of the beating heart of their parent. If you’re wondering if babywearing is right for you, rest assured that BabyBjörn has created some amazing products that fit a wide variety of parenting lifestyles. 

What is Babywearing week?

Did you know that there is a whole week dedicated to babywearing? It’s true and exciting, all at the same time. But do you really even know what babywearing actually means? It’s an entire week that brings focus to the importance and benefits of babywearing. And this week just isn’t for moms. This encompasses dads and other family members as well.

Anyone who believes in the power of babywearing and anyone who wants to learn more about babywearing should participate in National Babywearing Week. It’s a simple way to showcase the importance of helping your baby feel loved, warm, and happy just by being held close to their parent or guardian. 

(This year Babywearing week is September 30-October 6 so be certain to join in on the fun!)

What are the advantages of babywearing?

There are actually many! One of the biggest advantages of babywearing is that it creates comfort and a calming feeling for the baby. It gives them comfort and support knowing that they’re right there with the person that they love.

Along with that benefit, there is also the one that allows a parent to still function in a productive way without having to give up that physical bonding time with their child. 

And finally, last but not least, babies who are carried in carriers tend to fuss less, have better digestion and less colic, and feed easier as well. 

What are the different babywearing carriers that BABYBJÖRN offers? 

This is the best part. BabyBjörn has created three different carriers that truly are a game-changer in the babywearing world. 

BABYBJÖRN Baby Carrier Move

This carrier was made for parents who want to incorporate their little bundle of joy into their own active lifestyle. Instead of changing their lives once the baby is born, they’re looking for ways to have the baby join in on the fun, too.

This carrier has great back support that is built-in and also has a waist belt that allows the baby’s weight to be distributed more as they grow. (They get big so quickly!)

The other great aspect of this carrier is that it is adjustable so it can grow with your baby as they grow as well. 

BABYBJÖRN Baby Carrier One

If you prefer to have a baby carrier that aligns with the seasons, this is the one for you. It’s created in a print that appears more playful and has softer colours, making it eye appealing as well as functional. 

Built with the same support as mentioned above, the soft fabric also allows for the parent and baby to not have to worry about skin irritants or pressure point issues from the carrier. 

BABYBJÖRN Baby Carrier Mini

Having the word “mini” on the end is the first clue that this carrier is for little babies. And the point of this carrier is that it is designed with newborn babies in mind. 

The way that this carrier is crafted is that it allows you to carry your newborn in a c-curve position that feels a lot more natural to them than other positions. And the front of the carrier remains open so you can easily get to your newborn quickly if you need to.

The fabric is super soft to the touch, which is nice for a newborn’s delicate skin. And you’ll also notice that there is less fabric on this carrier so it allows that that important skin-to-skin contact that is imperative for newborns and parents.

Now that you know the great carrier products and benefits of babywearing, join in on the fun! Take the time to learn more about the importance of babywearing and pledge to start trying this more with your little bundle of joy. 

You just might find that this new method of carrying and bonding is exactly what you and your baby need!

    Yes, I have. It is particularly good for babies suffering from colic and great for when out walking the dog!

  • Solange October 5, 2019 at 11:28 am

    Yes, we have tried babywearing before.

  • S.Otoole October 5, 2019 at 11:33 am

  • Stuart Hargreaves October 5, 2019 at 1:14 pm

    I have never tried it before

  • Kay Broomfield October 5, 2019 at 4:16 pm

    I love babywearing with my youngest. I hadn’t tried it with my other two and I wish I had now. I can even workout with my baby using a baby carrier. That’s my top tip. You can train whilst babywearing 🙂

  • A.E. ADKINS October 5, 2019 at 6:32 pm

    I have but with hip problems, I found it very difficult, in hindsight I should have borrowed several different styles, so that would be my top tip

  • Iain maciver October 5, 2019 at 7:20 pm

    have not so far

  • Justine Meyer October 5, 2019 at 7:31 pm

    I never used with my two as I have back problems

  • Susie Wilkinson October 5, 2019 at 8:24 pm

    I’ve never tried it, but I’ve heard lots of good reports from Mums that do

  • Anam October 5, 2019 at 11:24 pm

  • Laura Pritchard October 6, 2019 at 11:32 am

    I had a sling for my daughter & would recommend putting the baby in the right way round!! I went a week with her facing the wrong way!

  • Margaret Gallagher October 6, 2019 at 12:19 pm

    No – would love for my great neice

  • Julia Kerr October 6, 2019 at 12:59 pm

    I’ve not tried baby wearing but I’m interested, I worry about the safety of making sure all the straps are secure enough

  • Sarah kirby October 6, 2019 at 1:03 pm

    No, I have never tried, was never so popular when my two were little. Would be ideal for my grandchild though

  • betsy ferguson October 6, 2019 at 6:19 pm

    no, not yet

  • Karen Barrett October 6, 2019 at 6:40 pm

    I didn’t with my children but I have with my grandchildren. Perfect when you are visiting a busy place and don’t want to take the pram

  • Amanda Walsh October 6, 2019 at 7:21 pm

    I have never tried baby wearing before, but have always wanted to, it looks super convineant

  • charlotte isobelle October 7, 2019 at 2:56 pm

  • Sue McCarthy October 7, 2019 at 3:45 pm

    I don’t have any children but would love to win this prize to donate to charity

  • Mary N October 7, 2019 at 5:10 pm

    Yes. My daughter loved to be held and really disliked the buggy. You have to try different baby wearing carriers to find which one works best for you and your baby.

  • Elizabeth Yeates October 7, 2019 at 7:28 pm

    Not tried it yet!

  • Rebecca Sutton October 8, 2019 at 12:07 am

    I haven’t tried it yet, but it looks fab!

  • Emma Gibson October 9, 2019 at 12:23 pm

    Never tried it, would love to.

  • Alica October 9, 2019 at 1:26 pm

    I did it with my twins many years ago, wearing one and pushing a single pram is much easier than a double! I would love t do it with my 2 week old granddaughter too 🙂

  • Jessica Powell October 10, 2019 at 6:05 pm

    I’ve never tried it – not yet, at least!

  • Natalie Burgess October 10, 2019 at 9:09 pm

    Baby wearing makes me feel close to my little man and also perfect for hands free when you have a second child! Xx

  • Nikki Easton October 11, 2019 at 2:29 am

    I tried with my first child and loved it, lovely bonding. I hope it goes well this time around too.

  • Lucy C October 11, 2019 at 9:46 am

    Never tried it before – our first baby is due any day now and both me and my husband are keen to try babywearing. We have 2 dogs and think it will be a godsend on daily walks!

  • Nicola Farrel October 11, 2019 at 10:46 pm

    Yes I have carried my little girl before would love to upgrade our carrier for number three.

  • Heather Wild October 12, 2019 at 11:01 am

    I’m currently expecting my first child (baby boy in Feb) so have never tried babywearing before. I’m really keen to do so though as we love to go on walks and its not always ideal conditions for a pram/buggy.

  • Miranda October 12, 2019 at 1:22 pm

    Love babywearing

  • Jennifer Toal October 12, 2019 at 7:07 pm

    No I’ve not tried but I bet it is a lot easier than trying to juggle the pram everywhere

  • Lorna Ledger October 13, 2019 at 6:18 pm

    Yes I did! It was so handy for little walks out and me and my daughter enjoyed all the cuddly time!

  • Clara Roberts October 14, 2019 at 4:16 pm

    I love my mini carrier – so soft for my little one

  • Jodi Hill October 14, 2019 at 9:23 pm

    I didn’t with my first but did with my second, it was a good send when I had to do the school run or get some jobs around the house done, my top too would be to try a few different ones, as they’re not always a great fit… I found the baby carrier much better than a sling 🙂

  • Katie B October 15, 2019 at 10:26 am

    I’ve never tried using a baby holder, but it’s something that I’m interested in

  • Sarah Holder October 16, 2019 at 11:07 am

    I haven’t tried as I’m due my first next month! Would live to try!!

  • Samantha Mytton October 16, 2019 at 12:09 pm

  • Danica Clarke October 19, 2019 at 9:28 pm

    I’ve tried baby wearing with my first born and loved it! My top tip would be to make sure the straps are adjusted correctly 🙂

  • Tracy Higgs October 20, 2019 at 4:32 pm

    I used a baby carrier for my daughter and Will be using one again soon as I have a five week old granddaughter. I found my daughter was very content when Inused it with her.

  • Geoff Hibbert October 25, 2019 at 9:48 am

  • Elizabeth Cooke October 25, 2019 at 4:24 pm

    I haven’t as I am a first time mama to be. I had a look at some at The Baby Show in London but felt overwhelmed with options, this one looks fab!

  • Twirlywhirly3 October 26, 2019 at 6:56 am

    Use from as early as possible so baby is used to one, great for long walks holidays or even short trips

  • Claire Ginn October 26, 2019 at 9:56 am

    Looks amazing, would love to try for our new addition

  • Harriet K October 26, 2019 at 11:13 am

    Pregnant with my first, due in April 2020, so have not tried baby wearing yet – but can’t wait to!

  • Donna Caldwell October 26, 2019 at 12:00 pm

    I haven’t tried it before but I’ve heard so many parents recommending it

  • Romana Richards October 26, 2019 at 2:06 pm

    Now I am a grandma and when my children were babies they were all baby carried and it gave them all comfort when suffering with colic or discomfort anxiety. I could still do things I anted to do around the house and they were warm and not alone.

  • Fiona Johnstone October 26, 2019 at 3:35 pm

    Yes I have. Great for out walking with the dogs. Remember to keep the wee baby’s head and hands cosy. I loved using mine. It’s a nice bonding experience.

  • Diane Searle October 26, 2019 at 6:35 pm

    I have never tried babywearing before but wanted to give it a go with my first baby due in March 2020

  • Heli L October 26, 2019 at 11:53 pm

    I used babywearing with my oldest son. It was very useful when using the bus and tube. But the more my son grew, the more difficult it got!

  • Sarah Roberts October 27, 2019 at 1:48 am

    No l didnt when we had our children but this would be amazing for our daughter due Jan with her little girl. They are such a great idea they would have made things so much easy years ago!

  • Carly Belsey October 27, 2019 at 6:38 am

    My partner used to do with this with our daughter all the time. I was a little bit paranoid that I would trip over as i am so clumbsy lol but I did do it a few times. Our daughter loved feeling close to us and it was great when we went places that was hard to take a buggy

  • Ani Costa October 27, 2019 at 7:31 am

    Never tried baby weaning before

  • Dean T October 27, 2019 at 8:56 am

    I have not but my partner has, I prefer a good old pram !

  • Helen R October 27, 2019 at 9:19 am

    Tried it with both of my children but they both hated it! My SIL is expecting and would like to try though.

  • Geri Gregg October 27, 2019 at 9:37 am

    I used to love babywearing when my son was small. Make sure babies arms or legs dont get stuck when putting them in x

  • Jh October 27, 2019 at 10:45 am

    Looks awesome

  • Leeane P October 27, 2019 at 1:22 pm

    I’ve never tried it before, but would love to as I’d like free hands

  • Darren Bourne October 27, 2019 at 1:31 pm

    I haven’t tried it but the babies look so happy and content in them so I think is a good thing to try.

    I have never tried babywearing before, but am really looking forward to doing it when the new addition is here!

  • Sarah Addey October 27, 2019 at 3:10 pm

    No but would be perfect for my daughter who has just had her baby

  • Rachael Sexey October 27, 2019 at 4:00 pm

    I used to always baby wear my son he was a very needy baby

  • Pauline Dring October 27, 2019 at 4:09 pm

    Yes, I used a baby carrier a lot but I would say it used to make me feel very hot, so I wouldn’t recommend wearing a jumper, better to put a cardigan which you can easily remove.

  • laura stewart October 27, 2019 at 5:05 pm

    no i havent tried it yet x

  • donna l jones October 27, 2019 at 6:02 pm

    have never tried before

  • Melissa Lee October 27, 2019 at 7:00 pm

    I haven’t! It sounds like there are loads of benefits to it

  • Amanda Aspinall October 27, 2019 at 7:33 pm

    I used one as I had 3 children under the age of 2. Had a double buggy and then the carrier came in very handy.

  • Sylvia Paul October 27, 2019 at 9:29 pm

    No I have not tried them but they would be perfect for my Niece x

  • Rachel Craig October 27, 2019 at 9:34 pm

    Used baby carrier for relatives babies when they were young, convenient for us adults. As hands free for other tasks, commitments, etc. Particularly useful when one baby and one toddler. Baby safe and comfortable, toddler could still be kept close by, safe and happy (as needs addressed, hands free baby wearing :- Similar to a cuddle for baby). Would find as toddler tired, often opted to cuddle baby / sibling, which was so cute, practical, soothing and peaceful, calming experience for us all.

  • Naomi Williams October 27, 2019 at 9:52 pm

    No I have never tried it
