Why is a sling or baby carrier good for you and your baby? This is what the experts say: Dr. Sears, a paediatrician for over 30 years explains, "Because baby wearing resembles the womb as closely as is humanly possible, it fulfils a style of parenting that baby would have anticipated and helps a new baby fit into their environment."

What about swaddling? Swaddling is the ancient practice of snugly wrapping a baby in a blanket for security and dates back to biblical times. Swaddling in effect re-creates the mother's womb for a newborn baby.
Research suggests that swaddled babies sleep better and that swaddling a baby in the first 3-4 months of baby's life may help babies remain on their backs which reduces the risk of SIDS.
Liberty Slings have a new product - The Swaddle Pod, which is used to safely and simply swaddle baby and is similar to a baby sleeping bag, no velcro, buttons or ties.
The Swaddle Pod is made from quality 100% knitted cotton a natural fibre which allows air to circulate and prevent your baby from overheating.
