Babywearing and a giveaway! February 24 2014, 2 Comments
Babywearing, yes pleaseLa Stella Blu began with an adventure, an adventure through a land of endless information, options and opinions. It began with a search for a baby carrier, making that the perfect place for me to begin my exploration of everything baby. Babywearing is a practice that spans centuries, crosses seas, cultures and languages. Keeping baby close and secure is not just a desire it’s an instinct.
The benefits of babywearing have me adding a baby carrier to my definite, must have, necessity list and let me tell you why. Babywearing creates a strong parent-child bond. Imagine the love and security your baby receives when they can feel the rhythm of your heartbeat, the warmth of your body and the ability to see your face. Studies have shown that from these abilities, to see and feel you, your baby has lower levels of stress, reducing the occurrence of spit up and diaper rash. Babywearing allows you to be in tune with all of your babies needs, resulting in less tears.
The benefits don’t end there. Babywearing enhances the development of your baby. Spending a greater amount of time in the “quite alert” behavioral state, carried babies become more intimately involved in your life, engaging in their environment and learning from every interaction. Lastly, lets admit it; your life doesn’t come to a halt when your baby is born. And while you may have mastered extraordinary one hand maneuvers, sometimes two hands is better than one.
Choices, choices, choices (from only the best)
Baby Wraps are that of simplicity and security. No clips, no clasps, no straps; wraps are a long piece of fabric that is used to tie the baby to you. With countless tying options this truly makes the wrap the most versatile carrier, fitting every body and every style. The wrap holds baby in an ergonomic position, provides you with complete support, and may I mention a perfect way to nurse.
