Great resources listed in the back of the book.

Then the book is organized into every style of cloth carrier, where to buy, how to make, what to use and of course- detailed directions to using them (with pics!)
Aradia Paganus
Great baby shower idea: give this book and a gift certificate for their choice of baby carrier...they'll thank you from the bottom of their hearts!

I am a mom, doula, and an Attachment Parenting International (API) leader, so I was thrilled that a babywearing book was finally on the market. What an inspirational, supportive resource for babywearing. Well organized, with wonderful pictures to teach you how to wear your baby or toddler in many different positions and with the various soft slings/carriers/wraps on the market. Lists the numerous benefits and history behind babywearing. Great resources listed in the back of the book. Any new parent or veteran of babywearing will cherish this book.

At last, a book that combines well-documented information about the physical and emotional benefits of keeping your baby close along with practical instructions on how to actually use those tricky wraps and slings. This is the book I wish I had before my first child was born. Great photos remind the reader that babywearing is not just for able-bodied moms--moms in wheelchairs, dads and other caregivers can all put on a sling or carrier and give that baby the unconditional love and affection she needs to thrive. A perfect gift for any expecting parent.

I have been wearing my now 16 month old since birth and have used several different types of carriers. I enjoy learning new things about babywearing which is why I purchased this book. I believe the author did a great job explaining the benefits of babywearing and showing in detail how to use different carriers. I do belive however that this book needs a little updating because I noticed there are some carriers that were recommended that no longer exist. Also the author recommends the Baby Bjorn and similar type carriers which can be bad for babys spine and hips because they put pressure on the baby's crotch instead of having baby froggied or in a sitting position this is also true for foward facing carries which are recommended. And finally the author says that it is okay to do a back carry in a stretchy wrap which is dangerous. Please if you want to carry your baby on your back do not use a stretchy wrap, get a woven wrap or other type of carrier.

All in all it was a good read. I just believe that those few things need to be updated for the safety and comfort of parents and babies.

The book opens with a brief biography of the author, and her into medical school and to babywearing. Then the book is organized into every style of cloth carrier, where to buy, how to make, what to use and of course- detailed directions to using them (with pics!) (With instructions for adapting carries for newborns to 2-3 year olds!)

I strongly reccommend this book for all new mums, dads, nannies, grandparents- EVERYONE who will be caring for a little one.
