When a new baby is born, you want to keep them as close to you as possible much of the time. Holding the baby can get very difficult to do the older they get. While you want to be near the baby, you cannot hold him all day. Finding a way to carry your little one with as little trouble as possible is the key to gaining the use of your arms again and still holding your new baby.
Baby wraps are one way you can carry your new baby. These devices are essentially long, specially-cut pieces of wide, stretchy fabric that you wrap around yourself and the baby. You tuck the ends of the wrap into itself, or attach it another way to ensure that it will stay tight.
