Despre minunile pe care le fac de sistemele de purtare am auzit prima oara anul acesta. Insa purtatul bebelusului exista de secole si beneficiile sale de asemenea.
Am avut un astfel de sistem pentru Achim acum 6 ani insa nu l-am folosit de prea multe ori.
Abia astept sa le probez. Se pare ca sunt ca o combinatie reusita intre materialul unui wrap si confortul pe care il ofera un SSC. Se folosesc cel mai mult incepand cu varsta de 4 luni, dar exista posibilitatea de a le folosi si pentru bebelusi. Cand voi incerca unul o sa adaug informatii noi despre ele.
– spatele sistemului este moale și se mulează după transformarea fiziologică a coloanei vertebrale, de la C la S-ul adultului în miniatură
– pentru nou-născuți și copilașii mici, care nu-și țin bine capul, sistemul oferă suport suplimentar
– sistemul se adaptează dimensiunilor copilului (de la mic la mare)
– copilul păstrează în sistem poziția pe care o are în mod normal în brațe
Acest tip de purtare se aseamana cu “purtatul” copilului in uter (oferind confort, caldura, siguranta). Nimic nu e prea strans sau prea larg. In acelasi mod in care mersul mamei in timpul sarcinii nu a afectat coloana copilului, asa si purtarea intr-un sistem de purtare ergonomic nu va avea efecte negative asupra coloanei lui.
EN: Mommy, wear me next to your heart!
About that wonders these systems make I heard for the first time this year. But babywearing is there for centuries.
I had one system for Achim 6 years ago but I have not used it too many times.
But one of these days I was advised by a friend to buy myself one. I did as I was advised and I went to one of the stores that sells them to try on one with my fairy and all (so were indications;). And I did well! I discovered there is a small haven of organic cotton and a whole universe of Babywearing that I had not known before.
I tried the first time an elastic wrap and learned how to tie it. Then the marvel Marsupi Plus and two other SSC systems from Manduca and Kokadi .
We got along best with Marsupi, and we have it at home for a few days, but here’s what information I gathered in the meantime.
1. Strechy Wrap
I tested it myself. It’s a long strip of elastic cotton that you wrap around you in a specific way, easy to learn. Its biggest advantage is that it’s perfectly fit the baby’s body shape complementing that specific C pine that infants have in their first months, and therefore can be used from birth. Provides effective support of legs, the soft material being carried from one knee to the other in principle, ensuring the physiological position of frog, M. The system adapts to the child’s size (from small to large). It seems that can be used up to 9 kg and then you have to find an alternative system to replace it. It’s convenient, easy to apply and can be found in many colors. I especially liked the Manduca from organic cotton. I have one favorite creamy gray stars on my list that I think I’ll take home these days.
Why I didn’t bought it from the first day: the babywearing specialists we talked to say that the baby heats up more quickly in the elastic wrap , being covered by three layers of material, and I recommended if you choose it to wear Zora in it only in a diaper at home at least.
Because Zora cried when I tried it on, and because I want to put a body on her in the house I chose Marsupi . In addition to me it seemed like her head was to much held on the back , and when I tried to pull a strip of wrap over her little head for support she didn’t agree. But a big advantage of the elastic wrap’s is that you do not need to take it out every time you remove the baby. It remains mounted on you and you can remove and reinstall the child whenever you like.
2. Woven wrap
It seems to be very durable, efficient and in addition it can be found in a variety of colors, prints etc. But I was advised to use when Zora will be older. Anyway, it seems like it’s a little more difficult to bound. Because it was not suitable for now I have not tested it, but I will return soon to do so because I am very curious.It’s an interesting alternative to the elastic wrap, made of a more resistant cotton which can support more weight. I was surprised when I heard that fabric that can support even 100 kg! So it will go up to 20 kg without any problems.It’s on my wish list for the future.3. Sling with rings I have not seen one yet. It seems that can be used from birth. There are some special ones you can take on vacations that can be used in water and drie quickly. I intend to take one for Zori for when we go on summer vacation.
4. Marsupi Plus
It was my first choice and it’s absolutely beautiful! It seems that is thought to be used from birth but many mothers say it is best to use it after the age of three months. The specialist in babywearing from hiphip.ro, who has four children sais that she used it for all her children, and she recommended it for this period.
It’s a hundred percent Romanian product, made of an organic cotton cut and sewn flawlessly, where Zori felt comfortable from the first moment. I like the system that supports the head very (she does not keep her head back as in the elastic wrap) that can be closed only on one side depending on how the child is positioned on the chest.
The material is very qualitative and breathes, the child doesn’t become hot in it as in that elastic wrap , comfortable for me and for her, a marvel! And additionally from the beginning was Daddy’s favorite! Paul wears our youngest in Marsupi and she feels as good worn by him.
I managed to put it on from the first moment unaided, which means a lot to me especially during times when I am alone with both children and both need me and I need to keep moving quickly.
It’s easy and takes very little space after you roll it, you can use it in the front or on the hip and has an adjustable armband for newborns. And I like all its colors. My favorites are the anthracite, khaki and ruby. I chose anthracite because it was easier to match with my outfits and hers.
Wearing the type of system is very complex. We’ll take one after we Zori grows. There are some that are effective at birth, but I was immediately attached to Marsupi Plus and I decided to take later a SSC. And now I want to try and wrap elastic … so … wait. 🙂
We tried Manduca and Kokadi (which is brilliant, I swear) but I will write more about them after I purchase one.
Both are designed for babies to toddlers and older, highly resistant yet friendly.
6. Mei Tai, Hop Tye, Tye Wrap
I cannot wait to try on them. There seems to be a successful combination between a wrap material and the comfort that a SSC offers. Most use itfrom the age of four months, but some you could use for small babies also. When I try one I will add new information about them.How to recognize a system of ergonomic behavior?
– Ensure effective support legs, soft material being carried from one knee to the other in principle, ensuring physiological position of frog, M
– Behind it is soft and molds to the physiological transformation of the spine, from C till shape S.
– For newborns and small babies who do not keep well head, the system provides additional support
– The system adapts child sizes (from small to large)
– Child system keeps the position it normally has in your arms
Why should we wear our babies:
Babywearing positively influences the overall development of the baby.
Those who are afraid of spinal injury or difficulty breathing fears find out that their fears were unfounded. It’s true that if one system is not suitable for ergonomic use or the proper baby age can cause some problems. Therefore they must be tested, preferably with all the baby at specialized shops where you can be advised by babywearing specialists.
This type of behavior is like “wearing” the baby in the womb (offering comfort, warmth, safety). Nothing is too tight or too loose. In the same way that the mother’ s walking during pregnancy did not affect child column, so wearing a wearing ergonomic system will not adversely affect his spine.
Wearing uniform system supports the child’s body.
The child wore acquires more power (development stato-motor, skills labyrinth – balance), better development of the nervous system (coordination, awareness sensory and digestion), a psychological development more harmonious (confidence, frustration tolerance, trust creativity) and a better social skills (ability to integrate).
– Baby feels the heat of her mother / father
– Feels the heartbeat of these
– Is aware of their body odor
– Feels and hears the voice (having the ear on the chest of the wearer)
– Is fully embraced and so feels safe
– Can burp easily (without vomiting)
– His digestion is stimulated (by massaging the stomach)
– Babies who are close to big people can better study the facial expressions, they learn faster the language and body language.
– Child learns to socialize much faster
Mother’s oxytocin levels increase due to physical contact with the infant. Helps strengthen the connection and decreases the effects of maternal postpartum depression if it exists. If the father carries the baby, it also has many benefits for the development of paternal bond.
Wearing child (Babywearing) has existed for centuries and it seems to work. I wear appreciate what systems?
