Babywearing: The best suggestions for the safety of the child in the wing

You can start babywearing right from birth with the right support. Right after giving birth, I recommend you enjoy your baby skin to skin, thinking only of you. After a while (and the “little” you will define it, there is certainly no rule), you will begin to become familiar without forcing or forcing yourself. You will help your child to pass more gently from the belly to the world.

If you want to try Rebozo shortly after birth, must be soft so as not to rub on the delicate skin of the newborn, well adherent to your chest and capable of adequately supporting its weight (valid rule for all baby carriers, always). For safety, place the baby in a vertical position (belly to belly). When the child grows up, the advice is to choose baby carriers and ligatures that follow his development and his needs; more time passes, moreover, the more he wants to explore the world: keeping it as a cocoon could make him feel constrained and annoy him.

In various parts of the world and from different subjects, information campaigns have been created and disseminated with the aim of explaining, through (remembering, sometimes, more than words), important rules and tricks to keep in mind to bring them to safety; let’s see some of them …

Snug: a baby carrier must be snug, as a comfortable embrace for both.

In view at all times: you should always be able to see your baby’s face.

Close enough to kiss: your baby’s head must be so close that you can kiss it on your forehead.

Keep chin off the chest: the child must never be bent to C. Make sure; there is at least two fingers of space under his chin.

Supported back: the back must be supported in such a way that the child does not slip, assuming incorrect positions.

Careful: pay attention and do nothing that you would not do if you were pregnant.

Airflow: make sure the airways are free.

Ride high: make sure that your baby is positioned high up and close to you.

Right fit: not all baby carriers are the same: choose the one that fits you and your child’s age, shape and weight.

Your instinct: trust your instinct and keep a connection with your child, making sure that he is always in a correct position.

Airways: keep the airways free and be careful to avoid the C position.

Body positioning: the correct position is at M.

Comfort: you have to be comfortable and the experience should be comfortable.
