Michelle: “One of the most enjoyable aspects of mothering has been holding my baby close to me in a sling, everywhere I go.”
Sometimes a mother needs a stroller, especially if she has an injured back. However, when a baby is in a stroller, he/she is not experiencing physical contact with his mother. The world goes by, and he does not get a sense of this world, while safely nuzzled with his mother. I have seen many children, who essentially are being delayed in their development, because rather than being allowed to practice walking, they are strapped into a stroller and wheeled around as if they where incapable. On the beach, I am amused when parents try to drag their strollers across the sand, when they could easily be carrying their child in a sling. Many times babies are crying in strollers, and it is because they want the parent to hold them. Why in our culture, do we put children in strollers? Unless the mother has a physical ailment, I would say laziness and ignorance. Also, a stroller does not promote breast feeding. Many times a baby in his/her mother’s arms or sling, can breastfeed to have is needs fulfilled. A baby in a stroller cannot breastfeed and it makes breastfeeding inconvenient. Children, and life can flow together well, a mother can be in the world, do what she enjoys, and at the same time give her baby what he/she needs. The best way to do this is with a sling, not a stroller.

“I would like to introduce you to a style of parenting which will bring out the best in your baby and yourself. During my thirty years as a pediatrician, parents in our practice would often say, ‘As long as I carry my baby she's content.’"
“If someone told you they knew a secret to help your baby sleep better, cry less and learn better, would you be interested? Author Maria Blois, M.D., does this and more in her new book, Babywearing.”
