With a toddler and an infant, motherhood was driving me crazy. Babywearing helped me immensely during that phase. Many days when my postpartum body refused to match the energy of my toddler, babywearing him gave me some quiet time and helped me re-energize. I also noticed that my toddler was less cranky whenever I carried him back from school. That gave him a sense of reassurance and undivided bonding time with me.
When there’s a slight nip in the air, a nice, long babywearing walk followed by a mug of hot cocoa/coffee can be super comforting after a long day. When your baby cuddles up close to you feeling toasty warm in the carrier, leaving your heart in a puddle, total bliss, ain’t it? 🙂
