Babywearing - There are so many sources of wonderful information available and we encourage you to learn as much as you can about Babywearing. You will feel the rewards as soon as you put baby in your Monkeywrap® and begin wearing your baby.
You can wear your baby while breastfeeding! In fact it is such a naturally comfortable hold that the baby may snuggle right in & sleep following feeding. In the privacy of your own home, the Monkeywrap® can be worn as a wrap-shirt, as it covers mom & baby while holding baby in the proper position. Tying the Monkeywrap® for breastfeeding is something you will adapt as baby grows and will be different for every mom. You will know what works best for the two of you.
The Monkeywrap® is a wonderful solution for a colicky baby. As you may or may not have experienced, a colicky baby wants to be held. Endless hours of holding can be tiring for mom and dad as well as baby. They are often juggled from one arm to the other or rocked back and forth.
The natural movement of your body as you wear your baby offers a colicky baby the comfort he is seeking, while giving mom and dad the well deserved rest of being hands-free.Understand Your Baby's Cries Today's Parent, September 2009
Being worn in a Monkeywrap® provides a special needs baby with a wonderful environment to thrive while learning and growing in a safe, secure place during any number of different therapies.
The practice of Kangaroo Care is now more widely practiced while a premature baby is in the hospital following birth. The Monkeywrap® supports Kangaroo Care perfectly.
"Newborn nurseries have recently begun using a method of vestibular stimulation called 'kangaroo care', in which a premature baby is wrapped, skin-to-skin, up against the mother's or father's chest. The parent rocks, holds, and gently moves with the baby. The rocking motion, the skin contact, and the rhythmic motion of the parent's chest during breathing produces the following beneficial effects: Babies show:
Researchers believe that using kangaroo care helps the parent act as a regulator of baby's physiology, including reminding the baby to breathe. In other experiments, infants with breathing difficulties were placed next to a teddy bear stuffed with a mechanism that seemed to "breathe"; these babies also had fewer apnea episodes. When this "breakthrough" in teddy technology hit the newspapers, a reader wrote in, "Why not use the real mother?" "
Once baby comes home from the hospital, wrapping and wearing can give back the precious first few weeks of closeness and bonding that they lost being separated from mom while in the Neonatal intensive-care unit (NICU). Wearing a preemie baby provides the best possible environment for them to thrive and grow. Babies can be worn for hours and breastfed throughout the day without having to leave the Monkeywrap®. Having baby close after a period of missing baby also helps mom to avoid post-partum depression.
"You are selling the most amazing baby wearing product ever! I love my Monkeywear®, thank-you thank-you thank-you.
