Terminology explination (babywearing?)

I"m familiar with some of these terms I'm seeing (cding, bf, attachment parenting, etc.). I've never heard of the term babywearing - is it related to attachment parenting?

Re: Terminology explination (babywearing?)

Babywearing is important when it comes to AP but many moms that are not AP do it as well. It is just the act of wearing your baby in a sling, mei tai or other type of carrier. Both of my kids have always loved to be worn but some babies don't care for it...so if a baby doesn't care for it the AP thing to do would be whatever makes them feel good.

It refers to wearing your baby in a sling or wrap or other type of baby carrier.

Thanks mamas! We use the carrier/sling a good bit. But more when he's wanting to be held and I need to get something done. Makes him happy!
