September 21st to 28th is the 2nd edition of International Baby Week. It’s the time to celebrate the joy of carrying our children. Whether it’s a small baby or an active toddler, children thrive when held close to their parents. These special moments help them build the self-confidence to venture out when the time is right for them. Perched on your back or snuggled up against your chest, they have discovered the world from your height, making it a much less intimidating place when they are are back on the ground.
The theme for 2009 is Close enough to kiss, highlighting that babies should be carried high in a baby sling, their bottom never lower than your navel and their head close enough to kiss. It’s one of the most important tips for carrying your child comfortably in a baby sling. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you need any advice on how to choose your baby sling or how to use it.
To celebrate this Babywearing Week, Babywearing International released this lovely video with heart-warming photos of baby slings: baby slings video
