Babywearing is nothing new. People have been finding ways to "wear" their young for thousands of years. When we look at the history of babywearing, we find that this wasn't done as a lifestyle choice, but as a necessary way to survive. Women worked and did not have time to entertain baby, so baby had to simply ride along. These women were onto something special though, whether they knew it or not.
Babywearing parents experience a strong bond as well as a sense of Independence because of the opportunity babywearing gives them to get things done. Imagine being able to use BOTH of your hands while your baby is exactly where he or she wants to be which is with you. We are, by nature, "carry animals". We are meant to keep our young with us until they are able to begin exploring the world around them on their own. Women who babywear experience less gassy, colicky babies who cry less and rarely have breastfeeding issues (as a matter of fact, skin to skin babywearing for prolonged periods of time can help correct just about any nursing issue a mother/baby may experience).
As a babywearing expert I worked at baby beloved, inc. where I sold and taught many women to successfully use and even nurse in their baby carriers. I got a lot of enjoyment out of teaching mothers a skill that I knew would not only enhance their lives and parenting experience - but make their lives SO MUCH EASIER! I have never met a parent who doesn't need that.
