Baby wearing is known in just about all cultures around the world for thousands of years. It is not only a convenent way to carry your child, but it is a very intimate experience between you and your baby....oh did I mention convenient??:) How many times have you tried to put down a little one to sleep and as soon as you are ready to get down to business they wake up? Carrying your baby in a sling is a very easy way of getting your work done and always being in the company of your little one. Some people say that being so attached to your child for so long will leave them to be very dependent,but it is the opposite. Children are more confident and sure of themselves as they get older because they got that love and closeness from their mother. In order to carry your baby, you don't have to spend a lot of money on a snuggly or anything like that. There are many different styles and techniques. I use about 6 yards of stretchy cotton fabric. I received a lot of inquiries on how to wrap it and it's a little hard to explain it. I found a video on youtube that wraps her baby exactly the way I wrap mine.
