How to Use Babywearing Shirts to Promote Closeness with Your Baby

When you first bring your baby home from the hospital, there isn’t anywhere you want them to be except in your arms.

A study which looked at the results of 34 randomized controlled trials with a total of 2,177 participants, skin-to-skin contact (also known as kangaroo care) promoted breastfeeding duration and cardiorespiratory stability among infants, according to the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews

Babywearing simulates this kind of contact while allowing you to go about your day-to-day business, whether you’re grocery shopping or simply walking around the house with your little one in tow
