A Baby Wants to be Carried: Everything you need to know about baby carriers and the benefits of babywearing

Carrying your baby – in a sling, wrap or other carrier – often known as 'babywearing', is more than just a convenient means of transport. In A Baby Wants to be Carried author Evelin Kirkilionis explains in detail why babies expect to be carried and respond so well to it – they have been designed for it over millions of years of human evolution. From our hunter-gather ancestors to the present day, when a vast array of baby carriers can be found in stores and on the internet, in some ways little has changed. Held close to the body of a familiar caregiver, babies thrive on the sense of security they feel as they interact  on their own terms  with their surroundings.

But modern parents must navigate their way through a mass of conflicting information about babywearing. How should a baby be carried, in what, for how long, and will it be safe? The answers can be found in these pages, as the author takes care to ensure that parents understand what to look for  and what to avoid  while making many helpful suggestions that will enable parents to make babywearing work for them. Her practical and informative approach makes the book a readable introduction to the joys of babywearing that will appeal to parents everywhere.
