While some may call the practice of “baby wearing” a new craze, the truth is that many cultures all over the globe have long carried their babies close through the use of a wrap or sling. Western cultures are starting to catch on to this practice for a number of reasons: it’s convenient, it promotes a baby’s physical development, and babies tend to be happier and more content (which makes parents more content too!)
There are some challenges that some parents face when carrying their baby around in a sling, with the most common being lower back pain.
If you are experiencing pain in your lower back, take a break and spend some quality time on the couch with your baby.
Your lower back pain is most likely caused by three very solvable problems:
The other common reason why parents feel pain is because the baby is too low. As a rule of thumb, you should be able to kiss the top of your infant’s head by tilting your head forward slightly.
As baby gets older, start high and move down until you find a spot which is comfortable for you.
Your baby should be close enough for you to slide your hand between the two of you, but the gap should be no greater than that.
With a wrap already covering your front, it can be hard to lift or lower your shirt so that you can quickly and privately feed your baby.
