Give Yourself Time to Adapt
Like breastfeeding, baby wearing takes practice and patience. It can seem extremely awkward at first and you may be tempted to forego it altogether. At these times, try to remember the unique emotional, developmental and psychological advantages of slings, backpacks and front carriers. Soon, your baby will barely acknowledge your existence, no less want to be held and carried! Why not relish this special time together; it will be over before you know it.
