You’ve been carrying your baby for one whole year!
The close contact has connected you to each other and helped your baby’s brain to grow. Hopefully it has brought you many happy adventures together and been useful in many ways: sleeping, feeding, travelling…

There is a lot of evidence to show that babies need to be close to their primary caregivers in the early months and years of their lives. This shared space creates an intimate connection between the two individuals that builds lasting bonds; and these bonds can shape your child’s future. It may well have helped you too, to survive the challenges of parenthood.

Choosing to carry your baby has been one of the most important things you could have done for your family unit. I congratulate you for that and encourage you to keep going!
