For thousands of years, in cultures across the world, parents have worn their babies in slings (and other types of carriers like today's front packs).
Western 'civilisation' has been slow to catch onto baby wearing, but in recent times there has been a huge increase in the range of wonderful slings available locally.
The key things to using a sling successfully are finding it easy to put on, the sling is comfortable and having the confidence that your baby is secure. If these 3 things aren't right, you are not likely to enjoy baby wearing or find it a successful way to calm your baby.
There are a range of ways you can use a sling and many situations in which you will find baby wearing useful!
