Babywearing safety basics


Starting out with a ring sling


Concerns with wearing premature infants, advice, and instruction

Melissa is a VBE with Babywearing International and has experience with babywearing her premature daughter.  She recommends a ring sling or woven wrap because of the reduced muscle tone, low birth weight, and other complications common with premature infants.  She recommends checking with the baby’s doctor to be sure babywearing will be ok with your preemie.  She did her first couple of carries in the NICU while her daughter was being monitored to be sure there were no problems with temperature, respiration, or heart function.
