New Native baby carrier and baby sling
The New Native® Baby Carrier takes its design from an array of indigenous cultures. Their carrier employs a modernized version of traditional baby-wearing practices from Wales, Sweden, Norway, China, Indonesia, Tibet, Africa and the Americas. It’s been said that there are as many ways to wear a baby as there are ways to make a baby smile. Whether it’s a Welsh-style woolen wrap or a colorful Vietnamese baby back-pack, every culture has engineered some form of contact carrying. A baby whose needs for close physical contact are met has the best chance of maturing into a self-assured, compassionate adult. Contact carrying also provides easier access for breastfeeding. Throughout human evolution, baby-wearing has been not only a convenience and means of bonding, but a means of survival. Simply put, a carried baby is a safe baby. Countless studies have proven what ancient cultures already knew: contact carrying is critical to a baby’s and physical, mental, emotional, and immune system development.
