Babywearing is a great way to bond with your baby! You can breastfeed easily, transport them around town rather than lugging that huge stroller around, allows you to do things that otherwise might be limiting and babies love it! They cry less, are more content, feel safe and loved which promotes further brain development.
These are the different types of carriers:
- Buckle Carriers
- Mei Tais
- Ring Slings
- Woven Wraps (my personal preference and recommendation for newborns)

Its best to go there and try them on to see what feels the best for you and your baby if you're in the NYC area. And if your baby is still in your belly, they have weighted dolls for demonstration purposes!
PLEASE NOTE: Its very important the baby's legs are shaped in a M shape and not straight down both when babywearing and swaddling. See image for more info:
