Milan, 21 October 2014 - There is more and more talk about Babywearing and its relevance in modern daily life: the practice that consists in carrying the baby in a support tied to one's own body.
But do we all know what it is? This custom, which has ancient origins, allows you to establish a strong emotional bond with your children, thus helping to prolong the magic that is created between mother and baby during pregnancy.
It is precisely because of the growing awareness of the interest in this method that the first research on Babywearing was born in Italy.
The analysis - conducted by Licia Negri in collaboration with Trevisini Editore - aims to obtain reliable data on babywearing in our country and to collect, through an online questionnaire, the experiences of parents, stories of family life that will be included in a book that will be part of the new series Mental Fitness Publishing dedicated to issues related to well-being from the point of view of the child. to issues related to wellness from a holistic point of view.
Available in bookshops next spring, the book will be a valuable 'consultant' for the family because it will allow parents, absorbed in their daily routines, to get to know the benefits of a high contact approach and to learn all the techniques and characteristics of the various baby carriers, so that they never lose sight of the most precious gift for their child: receiving security and warmth thanks to the presence of the parent.
As has already happened in countries such as the United States and Australia, through this survey, now also in Italy, it will be possible to create a real awareness of the importance of this method, which 'tastes good', in the growth of a child and to make people understand the most authentic advantages of a system in which physicality is essential.
Thanks to the experience of the author, who sits as a technical expert at the CEN (European Committee for Standardisation) working table dedicated to risk analysis and prevention for products in the childcare sector, particular emphasis is placed on the theme of safety.
The book, thanks to the contributions of doctors and researchers, illustrates how correct and safe Babywearing is a crucial experience for the psychological and physical wellbeing of both mother and child, as well as being fundamental in their growth process.
"I agree with the researchers and scholars who believe that a child whose needs for security and love are satisfied from birth, thanks to the proximity to his mother, will be a more serene and balanced adult in relationships with himself and with others" - comments Licia Negri - "the aim of this research is to create a culture of Babywearing, a widespread habit in many countries that is beginning to grow here in Italy. It is important to collect data on a very large sample of parents to allow all mothers-to-be to know before the birth the naturalness of this practice and especially its great benefits".
