What makes the baby carrier ergonomically correct?

Joimove  Babies classes are a unique opportunity for learning and experiencing the benefits of babywearing. All our instrcutors go through 3 levels of training to provide safe and enjoyable babywearing dancing routines. We care about health and safety and believe that,babywearing exercising is a specialist area that needs to be given attention in order to recieve maximum benefits  for both carers and babies. Indeed all of Joimove babies instructors are trained as babywearing peer supporters so if you have questions or concerns about wearing your baby properly, don’t hesitate to contact us!

What  are benefits of wearing our babies?

  • Carrying babies in the carrier distributes weight equally rather than just being carried in  your arms and is more comfortable for you and your baby
  • Carriers designed and worn ergonomically prevents lower back pain and helps to get a comfortable, better  posture position.
  • If your baby has reflux, holding them in an upright position would be the helpful to your baby and help them feel more relaxed and comfortable ! Also carrying your baby in the carrier close to your chest gives slight pressure on babies tummy which helps with gas issues.
  • Do you have colicky baby? It is more easily soothed when snuggled and rocked in a carrier.
  • Worn babies loved to be engaged in the world from your arms and feel more confident , social and close to the environment, which can be beneficial later on in their life, being part of the conversations and interactions of daily life.
  • Wearing your baby is also one of the best ways to soothe them or get babies sleep peacefully!

Why an ergonomical carrier?

Choosing an ergonomically designed type of carrier should help maintain a correct posture and give full support for the baby!

Exercising with babywearing, although it is a fact that carrying your baby means carrying extra weight, this should not be seen as the reason to want to carry your baby, as extra weight which help you to burn more calories. Babywearing, not only makes some tasks easier by freeing up our hands, but also helps to promote attachment parenting and bonding!

Babywearing exercises has to be designed and lead by professionals who have gone through training, specifically on babywearing exercising. There are some movements like bouncing, twisting, quicksteps and turns to be aware of, in regards to joints position and mobility!.
