Carrying your baby in a sling is not a new concept. For thousands of years, many cultures have carried infants in a sling. In modern society, especially Western nations, carrying your baby in a sling is a relatively new practice. Contrary to popular theory, babies who are carried and held frequently do not become dependent and clingy. They actually grow into happier, well adjusted individuals and will cry less than babies who are held only at feeding time and intermittently throughout the day. Babies who are carried and held the majority of the time have the need for touch and closeness filled at a very early age, leading them through their childhood with a sense of security and protection.
