At it's core, babywearing eliminates a caregiver's need to choose between holding their baby and accomplishing the tasks they need to accomplish such as eating, chores, errands or caring for other children. As much as we would like to sit around and do nothing but hold babies, we unfortunately have to adult at some point.
Babywearing is not about a certain parenting philosophy or fancy carriers. It's about thriving in the role of caregiver.
Babywearing is a tool in a parents tool belt. Just like any other tool, some folks will use it often, others every once in a while, and still others will not find it to be helpful. All of which are equally valid responses. My goal as a Babywearing Consultant is simply to introduce the tool of babywearing to as many caregivers as possible and provide support to those who find it helpful.
