The benefits of babywearing for your baby’s physical development

Babywearing is not only practical, but also has numerous benefits for your baby’s physical development. In this blog post, we take a look at the scientific findings on how babywearing positively influences your child’s motor skills and posture. We also give practical tips on how you can carry your baby efficiently to achieve the best results.

Why is babywearing important for your baby’s physical development?

Babywearing not only promotes the emotional bond between parent and child, but also supports physical development in various ways:

1. motor skill development: babywearing allows baby to develop their motor skills by learning to hold their head, strengthen their muscles and coordinate their movements. By constantly moving and adapting to the carrier’s posture, the baby also learns to feel and control its own body better.

2. strengthening the muscles: Carrying in an upright position promotes the development of the baby’s back and abdominal muscles. This not only strengthens the baby’s core muscles, but also supports healthy posture and spinal development.

3. improved posture: By carrying the baby in an ergonomically correct position, the baby’s spine and hips are supported, which can lead to improved posture in the long term. This is particularly important in the early years of life when the bones and muscles are still growing and developing.

Tips for efficient babywearing:

1. choose the right sling: Choose a sling or carrier that is ergonomic and promotes a healthy posture for your baby. Make sure the sling is made of breathable materials to ensure comfort and air circulation. Please do not carry your baby in the cradle position.

2. pay attention to the correct position: carry your baby so that their back is supported and their legs are in an M-position (spread and slightly bent) to support hip development.

3. start early: It’s never too early to start babywearing! The earlier you start, the more your baby will reap the benefits of babywearing for their physical development. But please listen to your body. Only when you are physically fit again after the birth is the right time to start.

4 Carry regularly: Integrate babywearing into your everyday life by carrying your baby regularly – be it on a walk, when shopping or at home. This way, your baby can benefit from the continuous movements and the closeness to you.

5. listen to your baby’s needs: Pay attention to your baby’s signals and react accordingly. If it is tired or needs a break, take it out and hold it in your arms to give it closeness and comfort.
