Slings and carriers are hip, trendy, cute, - and practical. Putting baby in a sling, wrap, pouch, or other carrier allows you to have your hands-free for other tasks. Plus, babies absolutely love the closeness and comfort. As if that weren't enough benefits, babies also are stimulated mentally as they watch you performing your daily duties and communicating with those around you.
