A 1986 study of 99 mother-infant pairs (reported in Pediatrics) showed that carrying babies at least three hours a day reduces crying and fussing 43% during the day and 51% at night. Babies are happier because they have less need to cry, and parents enjoy their babies more as a result. It enhances learning. Carried babies have enhanced visual and auditory alertness, and increased ¡°quiet alertness¡± times. Carrying a baby promotes cognitive development and speech development, since babies are exposed to more experiences and conversations. Carried babies are involved in their parents¡¯ world. They participate in life, rather than see it as a spectator. Carrying your baby promotes bonding and enhances parents¡¯ feelings of competence. A higher frequency of feeding and touching stimulates mothering hormones, and frequent carrying encourages and speeds the development of a mutual reading of each other¡¯s cues. NOTE: Take caution when bending. Bend at the knees, rather than at the waist, if you pick up something while holding your baby in a baby sling. Check your baby frequently. We urge parents to always check to make sure baby's airway is not obstructed. Keep an eye out for wear and tear.Repair any rips or tears in the sling's seams and fasteners.
