3. SO MANY CUDDLE-LOVERS, BUGS AND ALL
Oh, wintertime! You are so pretty out there, why don’t all the little bugs stay out all day sledding? Because we don’t offer them hot cocoa when they come in at sundown, that’s why! Our marshmallowed-cocoa-like babies are very desirable to kissers, cuddlers and germies. A sleep-inviting Boba wrap puts up a kind of defense field in a holiday crowd, or just a crowded house. If you’d prefer your newborn or older baby not be passed around from person to person at a gathering, letting her snooze in her baby wrap is a stellar strategy (worked for me!). Also, all the calming we talked about in #1 helps keep your baby’s immune system operating at tip top shape. Colds are fine, but isn’t it so much easier to enjoy the festivities without them?
Our babies are healthier, happier and more at ease with their kissable heads on our chests, hugged all over by their baby wrap or carrier. The holidays are a great way to put this to the test and reap the rewards of ease.
