Basking Babies Buffet - May 2016: Babywearing International (BWI)
Suzi and Tera from BWI joined us and Tera has wrtten the following summary:
BWI of Central Iowa would like to thank Angela & the 22 Basking Babies mamas for allowing us the opportunity to share our passion with you! There are so many great benefits to babywearing. In the early days, it is a great way to have free hands while doing skin to skin. This helps regulate heart rate, respirations, body temperature, and blood sugar. Holding baby close allows you to catch the earliest feeding cues, which helps milk come in faster and fuller. Research shows that babies that are worn cry an average of an hour a day less than babies who are not. BWI of Central Iowa can be found on Facebook & has weekly meetings in the Des Moines area for those interested in learning more. Each meeting has a lending library to find the carrier that works best for you, and volunteers trained to help you safely and comfortably wear. Happy wearing!
