5 Reasons You Need a Baby Sling


Baby slings are not only convenient for parents, more importantly, they also help the baby’s structural, physiological, and neurological development!



Do You Mean A Baby Sling Can Promote Baby Brain Development?

Yes! Baby’s brain development accelerates when they are moving in stable, rhythmic ways. Neuroscience studies shown the way the baby is carried will have the strong impact on the vestibular system. When they are carried moving steadily and in the same direction, it will speed up their brain development.

These movements not only help their nervous system development but can also help the brain to command, maintain the balance between core muscles and intrinsic spinal muscles, and coordinate muscles to complete simple to complex body movements.

Newborns’ spine looks like a big C, they perform the same curving position as when they were in the womb. As they grow their neck and back muscles started to grow stronger, enabling them to lift their head. Parents’ body curve can assist baby’s back muscle development, maintaining the right position.

Baby’s first year is an important stage of the spinal cord and nervous system development. When the baby is carried correctly on the carrier’s body, through natural formed mechanical balance will benefit the baby’s spine and muscle development.



How is Baby Sling Different from Other Carriers?

Conventional waist stool and swaddle blankets have an apparent downward pull without supporting baby’s thighs and knees. Baby’s legs are left dangling, affecting their hip joint development and possible joint dislocation.

When you’re carrying the baby with a sling, the baby’s position should be C-shaped (or J-shaped) looking from the side, knees lifted higher than buttocks. The baby should be in M-position (Jockey position) looking from the back, the baby’s body, buttocks, thighs and knees are all supported. *Hint : Mamaway baby sling carriers are designed based on Spread Squat position theory.


According to International Hip Dysplasia Institute, the M-position can support babies’ thigh and knee-joint, legs are able to stretch, buttock stabilized, less pressure is endured by hip joint, and it reduces the chances of hip joint dislocation or poor development.



Would it be dangerous for my baby?

Not at all! If you follow the 5CM tips -> 5 safety tips + C-shape body + M-position legs.The British Association of Babywearing Instructors had proposed the T.I.C.K.S. rule for safe babywearing.
