Babywearing Part 2

Baby carrier ni ade pelbagai jenis. tinggal nak pilih yang mana yang sesuai dan berkenan dihati je.
tapi, sebelum nak beli carrier ni kita perlu kenalpasti umur anak dan berat anak. Ofcourse lah tahu kan? mak mane lah yang xtahu psl anak kan? sobs..sobs..
pastu kena ambil tahu jugak..apa kegunaan utama kita beli carrier tu?
- nak long-distance journey ke?
- nak buat keje-keje kat rumah je ke?
- atau senang nak menyusu kan anak?
- nak pilih yang senang pop out n pop in ke?
- ada nak share dengan sesiapa x carrier tu?suami ke mak ke ayah ke?
- sanggup x amik masa nak belajar how to wear?
- berapa tempoh masa nak pakai carrier tu?
- dari baby newborn smpai setahun? 2tahun? sampai anak refuse?
banyak kan soalan kena tanya dulu sebelum beli?
mesti lah! sebab kalau boleh apa yang kita beli ni mesti lah nak tahan lame. kalau boleh simpan ke anak cucu pon xpe. ok.itu over!


Wraparound Slings
Wrap newborn front carry
A simple strip of cloth makes an elegant and comfortable baby sling. A little
learning is required to wrap and tie the cloth, but basic methods can be
mastered in minutes. Wraparound slings can be short, for quick one-shoulder carries, or longer, to distribute the baby's weight evenly over two shoulders and the caregiver's torso and hips. Wraparound slings come in a variety of
fabrics, but natural fabrics such as cotton, linen, hemp, wool, and silk are more breathable and have a more appropriate texture than synthetics. Some wraparound slings are specially woven to have exceptional performance as baby carriers, offering strength, breathability, just the right amount of diagonal stretch, and the right texture for holding the baby securely; these highly prized textiles are sometimes known as German-Style Wovens because this type of sling was developed in Germany. Wraps are an optimal and versatile carrier from birth.

Ring sling

Ring Slings
In its simplest and most elegant form, a ring sling is a shawl with a pair of rings attached to one end. The rings replace the knot or tuck-and-twist method of fastening used with traditional shawl carriers such as Mexican rebozos or Indonesian selendangs. Some ring slings have padding where the sling rests on the caregiver's shoulder or along the edges of the sling, and some depart further from traditional shawl carriers by having the fabric at the end of the sling folded and stitched into a rope-like tail. Ring Slings are an ideal newborn carrier and are also fantastic for the up-and-down toddler phase.

Pouch hip carry
Pouch Slings
Simply a tube of fabric with a curved seam, a pouch sling is a sleek carrier option. Pouches are sized to the adult wearer, and what they lack in adjustability they make up for in convenience. Few carriers take up less space in a diaper bag or are as quick to put on and take off as a pouch. While usable with newborns, many moms find these more fitting once their postpartum weight stabilizes and baby becomes stronger, generally around 4mo.

Mei tai front carry

Mei Tais
The modern take on a traditional Chinese baby carrier with a body panel, shoulder straps, and waist straps still carries the traditional name, "mei tai" (pronounced"may tie"). The new-generation mei tais typically have either wide, padded shoulder straps, or extra-wide, wrap-style, unpadded straps for the wearer's comfort. They also offer a variety of features such as headrests or sleeping hoods for the baby, pockets for diapers or other essentials, and fabric choices that range from strictly utilitarian to truly luxurious. Mei tais can be used from birth and are ideal for sharing among caregivers.

SSC back carry
Soft Structured Carriers
Also with a body panel and shoulder and waist straps, soft structured carriers replace knots with buckles and add a thickly padded waistband and shoulder straps. The result is a different weight distribution and overall different look and feel from a mei tai, putting this style of carrier into a category of its own. Soft structured carriers offer the convenience of buckles yet are vastly different from framed backpacks in that they hold the baby securely against the wearer's body. Unlike framed backpacks, soft structured carriers are suitable from birth through toddlerhood and provide the benefits of body-to-body contact for the baby (although some require or include a special insert for newborns). Soft Structure carriers really shine after about 4-5mo.
hah..mummy punye yg jenis ni lah..kihkihkih.. ^.^
