For thousands of years, in cultures across the world, parents have worn their babies in slings (and other types of carriers like todays front packs or soft structured).
Western 'civilisation' has been slow to catch onto babywearing, but in recent times there has been a huge increase in the range of wonderful slings and carriers available locally.
The key things to using a sling successfully are finding it easy to put on, the carrier is comfortable and having the confidence that your baby is secure. If these 3 things aren't right, you are not likely to enjoy babywearing or find it a successful way to calm your baby.
There are a range of ways you can use a carrier or sling and many situations you will find babywearing useful!
