Baby-wearing has been found to be one of the most effective parenting techniques for new babies. Wearing your baby not only allows you to have your hands free (probably for that much-needed coffee) but it also keeps baby close to you throughout the day. Research has shown that baby-wearing helps a baby grow and develop during their most crucial stages of life. It allows parents to calm their crying babies faster, and babies even cry less when being carried (if that isn’t a win we don’t know what is).
6 Reasons to Wear Your Baby
There are several different reasons why parents might choose to wear their baby. Baby-wearing can be done inside or outside the home – it doesn’t just have to be during Target runs. Here are some reasons you might want to consider wearing your baby more often:
- Baby carriers like the new Boppy ComfyFit baby carrier help babies during that “4th trimester.” It provides a comfortable transition from the womb to the outside world.
- Babies carried in carriers often are more alert and able to learn when carried, called quiet alert.
- Moms, dads, and baby are able to bond faster.
- Babies can watch their parents faces, learning emotions, social cues, and recognition.
- When babies are front facing, like in the Boppy ComfyFit baby carrier, they can watch the world around them, learning and exploring.
- Nursing is simple – the yoga-like fabric on the Boppy ComfyFit baby carrier allows moms to easily nurse their baby by stretching out the fabric all while still cradling them.
The Boppy ComfyFit Baby Carrier
The new Boppy ComfyFit baby carrier is the perfect way to wear your baby all the time. The stretchy yoga-inspired fabric makes it comfortable for every day wear. It is not bulky, hot, or uncomfortable which makes it easy to wear around the house all day long. The lightweight fabric moves with you. The Boppy ComfyFit is also made from UPF 50+ fabric so it will keep your little one protected even if you are out in the sun hiking, at the playground, or out for a beach day.
Moms, dads, and caretakers can all enjoy wearing the Boppy ComfyFit baby carrier. It is easy to put on with three simple steps: you simply click the main strap around your waist, strap the sections in a comfortable position for your baby, and tie it firmly to keep your baby secure. In fact, it is the best of both worlds when it comes to baby carriers- it is lightweight and stretchy while also offering structured support.
Babies of all sizes can fit this carrier- even up to your toddler. Starting at 8lbs, this baby carrier doesn’t need any special infant insert. And it will grow with your baby, carrying up to 35 lbs. The Boppy ComfyFit can also carry your baby in two ways – facing you for some extra special bonding time and for the littlest babes, and facing forward for older children and little ones who just want to see what’s going on.
You can truly keep your hands free with the zippered pouch, perfect for your phone and your Target card. And when you’re not wearing your baby, the Boppy ComfyFit folds down into a small size with a convenient Stash n’ Go pouch. No bulky carriers taking up space in your car, underneath your stroller, or in your carry-on luggage when traveling.
Wearing your baby at a young age is one of the most beneficial things you can do for their social and cognitive development. The Boppy ComfyFit makes it easy, too- a hybrid carrier that is convenient to carry, easy to put on, and fits everyone making it easy for everyone who is loving on your little one to bond and care for them, as well as have their hands free.
