Baby Wearing grows in the Twin Cities

[WCCO-TV, Aug. 24, 2015] If you haven’t done it yourself, there’s a huge chance you’ve seen someone else doing it at the zoo, the grocery store or a restaurant. It’s called babywearing. It can look like a frontal swaddle or a structured backpack. Just like with other clothing, the options are endless. Some wraps are woven, and some are structured carriers.

You may be wondering whether too much closeness could be a bad thing. Dr. Eric Barth, pediatrician at the Allina Health Ramsey Clinic approves. “It is a way of keeping the babies close so you can have that bonding, which is so important.”
