Babywearing is "magic"
Will my child get used to it?
A reassured child is a self-confident child who will discover independence on his own without a feeling of abandonment. During the first months of life, infants need the contact of their parents.

I'm afraid my baby will fall off the sling.
This fear comes from the ignorance of the babywearing in a sling. Parents' confidence in this technique will come gradually as they become familiar with this tool.
Like any means of carrying, the use of slings requires learning of the knots and the positions they allow, as well as respect for the safety rules essential to a good babywearing .

The wearer has 2 shoulder straps and a lap belt. What differs is the possibility of completely tailoring and distributing the weight and traction on the back and hips, thus obtaining more comfort.
