Fashionable & ERGO Baby Slings

I've often wondered how mothers manage to have their babies around them all the time. Using a perambulator is not feasible in some public places, and mothers cannot carry their little ones all the time while on foot. This is where babywearing comes in.

Back home in Sarawak, the native Iban mothers often use a large piece of cotton cloth to wrap their baby and tie it to them. The same concept is applied to the modern Baby Sling. Now, mothers can wear their babies comfortably, while having their hands free to do things. There are several types of babywearing accessories, including the traditional sling, pouches, wraps and carriers.

Baby wearing not only improves productivity of the mother; it also promotes bonding between the mother and her baby.
