Ten Babywearing Benefits Plus a GIVEAWAY from Britax! *CLOSED*

When Britax came to me about an upcoming ABC Show I’ll be attending with some information on upcoming events and promotions, I was so excited! It’s always exciting to hear about what’s new with your favorite brands, but even more exciting when they’re as HUGE and awesome as Britax and they want you to host a giveaway too! Who doesn’t love to win awesome stuff from trusted brands!?

Last year, Britax introduced its baby carrier. This versatile and ergonomic carrier comes in a few different colors to fit your style.

Whether you’re a new mom or mom to a toddler, you can use this carrier, because the weight limit goes from 8lbs to 32!

I have always talked about how much I love babywearing. You might remember a few past reviews and videos I’ve done talking about the importance of babywearing, but check out this really great list put together by Jamie Grayson (aka TheBabyGuyNYC) for Britax’ launch last year.

  1. Happy Baby:  One thing that stresses parents out the most is a fussy nugget, and according to a study in Pediatrics, babies who are worn for at least 3 hours throughout a day have reduced crying by 43 percent1
  2. Aides in Development:  The first three months of a newborn’s life are often referred to as “The Fourth Trimester,” and carrying a new nugget close to your heart helps her adapt to life outside the womb by becoming familiar with your breathing rhythm, heartbeat and voice.2
  3.  Feeding on the Fly:  Have a hungry nugget and you’re out and about?  Breastfeeding can be easily accomplished while wearing a baby.
  4.  Hands-Free Traveling: Jet setting with the family?  Of course you’ll need a stroller when you’re traveling to and from your destination, but try gate checking your stroller and boarding with your snuggling nugget in a baby carrier.  It’s amazing how “handy” two free hands can be!
  5. Keeping up with Life: A comfortable baby carrier offers the wearer the freedom to complete routine household chores while sharing the time with your little nugget.
  6. Keep Moving:  For people who like to get outside, wearing a baby is an ideal way to navigate everything from the concrete jungle to cobblestone streets.  You can conquer any terrain with a baby carrier.
  7. Bonding can be Shared: Wearing a baby is a great way for partners, dads, grandparents, adoptive parents and other caregivers to bond with your baby.  You carried him for nine months…Let someone else enjoy carrying him, too!
  8. Calm Babies are Observant:  Babies who are worn are usually calmer, allowing them to appreciate the world around them.  A calmed baby is better able to observe social cues and develop healthy relationships.
  9. Shopping is Less Taxing:  Grocery Run?  It is so much easier to wear a baby and push a shopping cart than to navigate with shopping cart and stroller.  Leave the stroller at home and enjoy shopping baby.
  10. Sleeping Baby = Peace of Mind:  Nothing beats the feeling of looking down and seeing a sleeping nugget on your chest.  Just unbuckle the front of the carrier and lay nugget down without even waking her up!  Ahhhhh….Peace for everyone!
This list is great! I absolutely couldn’t agree with every one any more! There are so many benefits to babywearing for both mom and baby (and if you’re a dad who wears your baby too!) I was always able to get so much more done while Lavery slept on me in the carrier after she was born than during any other time.

  8. I love Britax products! They are far better than many other products on the market. I would love to win this product because beimg a mom is a tough job. I typically have my beautiful daughter next to me on my hip most of the day. While doing dishes, cleaning and many other household chores. While I love it, owning a carrier would allow me to have both hands free and still have her near me. This would be amazing, thanks for the oppurtunity to win.

  13. I’d love a longer-wearing carrier. We used the BabyBjorn which was great, but my daughter grew out of it by the time she was about 6 months old! (Big kid, 90%+ all the way). This looks sturdier than the Ergo carrier I’ve seen around–a nice cross between the Bjorn and Ergo imho!

    I would love to have for our second child. With our first, I was so misinformed about babywearing. I wish I had known what I do now! Britax is such a great and trusted brand. Wish I could’ve used their car seats but our daughter is much too tall.
