8 Baby Wearing Exercises

8 Baby Wearing Exercises

I was very active prior to and during my pregnancy so I really wanted to (and needed to) find a way to incorporate exercise back into my routine without it feeling like such a chore. So one day I just decided to stick Caleb in the baby carrier and work out with him. It was great! I didn’t have to keep my eyes on the baby monitor, worried that he would wake up at any minute and I didn’t feel guilty for carving out that time for myself because he was right there with me; involved and having a blast watching and cheering me on through the workouts.

It is so exciting bringing your newborn home from the hospital. Accompanying that excitement, however, is worry. Worried if your baby is eating enough, worried if he’s too hot (or too cold), worried that you’ll accidentally drop him or if his cries are normal. I had a hard time coming to terms that he was no longer in my belly, but a human being suddenly separated from me. For this, and other reasons, we decided that cosleeping/bedsharing was what was going to work best for us as a family: I wanted to have my baby close to me at all times, even at night.

If you think your baby is ready to say “goodbye” to the swaddle then I recommend this easy, gradual process that we used on Caleb. Remember that any type of weaning takes time and weaning from a sleep association, like swaddling, may disrupt your baby’s sleep (and yours). Just be patient, gentle and optimistic and pretty soon you’ll have your baby sleeping unswaddled and both your sleep schedules back to normal.
