Wearing a Sick Child

By HD

 

It is awful when your little one isn’t feeling so well. Babies who are sick need to be held close and snuggled; they need mom or dad to help get them through this crummy time.

Babywearing makes it so easy to give your little one the extra they need. My son was sick a few weeks ago and we snuggled up in a woven wrap (the woven pictured here is the Dolcino from the BWI-Peoria Library). Woven wraps allow your to bundle up your child and keep them comfy and cozy. I used a front wrap cross carry, even though we usually do back carries, so he could stay right up on my chest.

Once he was feeling better, he was up on my back ready to see what he had missed while he was sick!
