Babywearing Newborn

Salam mommy and daddy!

Terdapat banyak pilihan di pasaran seperti woven wraps, ring sling, soft structured carrier (SSC), pouch dan Mei Tai. Pilihlah yang bersesuaian dengan umur dan berat baby serta mengikut keselesaan both mommy dan bayi. Newborn baby sememangnya perlu didukung atau didakap dengan kerap. Ianya memberikan rasa selamat kepada baby apabila ada sentuhan dekat dengan ibu. Malahan degup jantung ibu dapat meredakan tangisan bayi. Jenis carrier yang digalakkan untuk newborn dari 0 to 4 mo adalah woven wraps dan ring sling.

My babywering journey start dengan ringsling sejak adrian dalam pantang lagi. Sangat membantu terutama masa tu terpaksa berulang alik ke KPJ disebabkan baby prolong jaundis.

Cara mengendong newborn dengan selamat :
  • Sentiasa menjaga mengaliran pernafasan baby agar tidak terhalang ketika mengendong.
  • Keep baby “close enough to kiss.” Jangan terlalu rendah atau terlalu tinggi.
  • Kepala baby perlu nampak. Selalunya bila baby tidur kepala akan melentok ke kiri atau kanan dada anda. A snug carrier will help them maintain this position.
  • An upright tummy to tummy position. Posisi ini lebih mudah, selamat dan selesa bagi newborn seperti perasaan masih dalam perut mommy lagi. Kecuali ketika menyusu boleh ubah ke cradle position sebentar.

The dos and don’ts of babywearing

The dos and don’ts of babywearing

Do :

  • Wear your baby as high as is comfortable for you. The higher the baby, the easier it will be to sustain a carry and the less strain will be placed on your back. 
  • Wear your baby as often as you like! Babywearing isn’t limited to when you are out and about or times when baby is fussy! Carry your baby during your everyday activities and build that bond!
  • Support your baby’s head. Newborns especially need to have their delicate heads cushioned and held up and in a comfortable position.  Make sure that the carrier that you are using provides the necessary support. 
  • Practice putting on your carrier. Some styles definitely take a few tries to get them on just right. Practice makes perfect!  
  • Experiment with different carries. Virtually every style of carrier can be used in a variety of different holds. Test out each one to find the one that works best for you and baby. 
  • Use a well constructed carrier. Not all fabrics are made to support the weight of a child. Ensure that there will be no unfortunate accidents or injuries by using only those carriers that are put together well. 
  • Wear your baby in positions that are natural. Don’t contort your child into odd positions. Carriers should be used to essentially mimic holds that you could do with your own arms. Proper positioning is key to comfort and safety. Children should be supported from knee to knee and from bottom to back. Newborns should also have head and neck support.
  • Wear your baby close and snug. Carriers that are too loose will not keep your child inside them. 
  • Keep your eye on baby. Just because they are in a carrier doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t carefully monitor them for any signs of distress or discomfort. 
  • Use different carrier styles to determine which one is the optimum choice for your needs.
Wrap with love

Don't :
  • Believe that carrying your baby will spoil them. 
  • Let your baby’s legs dangle straight down. This can lead to hip dysplasia.
  • Use a carrier without knowing how to properly put it on and position your child. Get help if you need it!
  • Allow baby’s face to become covered with fabric. 
  • Wear your baby while doing strenuous exercise or activity. 
  • Wear your baby in a back carry using stretchy wraps. 
  • Allow baby’s chin to be tucked in too far. This could make breathing difficult for little ones.
  • Put too many clothing layers on your baby. An overabundance of clothing plus the layers of your carrier or wrap can make baby become overheated. 
  • Ride bicycles or drive cars while wearing your baby.
  • Let curious hands grab things sitting nearby that are dangerous!  Toddlers who are worn can reach out and get a hold on items that may not be suitable for them to handle.
