Now more than ever, it’s important to keep our little ones close.
With all the uncertainty going on, more of us are experiencing more stress and pressure and trying to navigate these challenging times- which can seem even harder when we throw a new baby in the mix.
But it doesn’t need to be. We have had so much wonderful feedback from customers and medical professionals alike praising the benefits of baby-wearing in a Covid-19 world, now more than ever before.
Not only does it provide additional security for bub being snuggled safe and close, but baby-wearing has a multitude of other benefits- enriching closeness with your new baby, helping alleviate your own stress and anxiety, improving the moods of baby and baby-wearer.
Here are just some of the incredible benefits of babywearing:
Babywearing strengthens the bond between parent and baby, as you maintain a closeness throughout your day, especially during the "fourth trimester."
It aids in baby's development both emotionally and physically, including promoting early language development.
Alleviates pressure on mums by allowing them to be hands-free to engage with their other children, tasks at home or just tend to themselves.
Helps prevent flat head syndrome or ‘plagiocephaly’ by holding baby upright instead of letting them stay on their backs too much.
Calms your baby by replicating being in your belly. When you wear your baby they can hear your heartbeat, feel your warmth and your breathing, resulting in a more relaxed little one.
Help you both get better sleep. Your baby loves to be around you and just your presence and touch is enough to calm it down. Babywearing promotes calm and minimises stress, and a calmer baby is much more likely to sleep better at night too.
BabyDink is also proud to be labeled as a Hip-Healthy product, by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute; encouraging healthy hip development in your newborn.

We believe baby-wearing should feel comfortable and be simple, so caregivers can connect and bond with their newborn.
