Why should you consider a soft baby carrier? Not only do babies love being physically close to you, it's good for their physical, mental, and emotional development to be a close part of your world. No surprise to moms, research has shown that babies who are carried more tend to cry less. "Wearing" your baby enables you to meet their need for closeness while still being able to accomplish the things you need to do, like eating, shopping, doing housework, going to the bathroom, or caring for older children.
Babies in a carrier spend more time in a "quiet alert" state - the ideal state for learning. Being close to a caregiver's heartbeat, breathing, and voice provide a sense of security, while allowing them to absorb information about the world around them at a comfortable level. Newborns especially feel as if they're back in the womb - hearing, smelling, and feeling the warmth of mom.
