How long can I wear my baby?
As new parents we want to do everything right for our baby. We want to make the best choice there is! One of the first questions new babywearing parents ask is how long it is ok to wear the baby? Is there a limit to how many hours per day it is healthy to wear the baby? The answer is simple - there is no limit! You may wear your baby as long as you and your baby like. Here are a few points to keep in mind:
- your baby must be wrapped tight enough for proper back and hips support;
- keep your baby in view at all times - you should always be able to see your baby's face
- close enough to kiss - your baby must be positioned so that you can easily kiss their head;
- chin off the chest - the chin of your baby must not be curled against their chest
