There are so many advantages to babywearing such as it's a great way to satisfy baby's need for touch, whilst keeping your hands free for other jobs. Not only that but it is comfortable for both parent and baby.

It also comes with a hood to support baby's head at nap time and a baby insert is available to purchase separately, allowing you to use the carrier from newborn through to toddler.
