The Nicole Carrier
There are so many benefits to babywearing. The first that may come to mind is hands-free nurturing! You're free to do anything you want while your little one snuggles up to you-whether it's tackling the laundry, dinner, or work. But, it goes so much deeper than that. The warm, cozy, close environment of being worn provides an easy transition from the womb to the world. Baby can feel your warmth, hear your heart, and know that they are close to you. Carried babies cry less, tend to be more successful with breastfeeding, are more receptive to learning (and there may even be a correlation with higher IQ in those that were worn as babies/toddlers), bond more easily, and many other benefits. The Nicole is an incredibly soft and made-to-last high-quality Ring Sling that also functions as a wrap carrier. It's extremely versatile. Not only can it be worn in a variety of carries (both as a ring sling, and in many positions as a wrap-carrier), but it can also function as a postpartum belt, nursing cover (if you feel compelled to cover! But remember, it's your legal right to breastfeed anywhere however YOU feel comfortable-cover or no cover!), swaddle or baby blanket. Included is a guide on how to use your carrier. Detachable rings and a convenient, compact travel bag are included.
