Babywearing allows the muscles and spine to get exercise & helps your babies sense of balance. Children who are carried are often more well-adjusted, as they can take part in family life from their protected position. In the Storchenwiege® baby sling your baby can always adopt the ideal posture: legs slightly splayed in a squatting ( frog ) position with back rounded. That is the position they took in the womb; their spine straightens out gradually over the course of her first year. Proper babywearing helps babies bodys develop healthily, in particular their spine and hips. Last but not least, babywearing is practical you have both hands free for brothers or sisters, or to get on with everyday life. Stairs, boarding the bus and hiking are no longer an obstacle.
