Again and again, you’ll see those physical and emotional benefits touted: baby will cry less, there are positive benefits for breastfeeding and bonding, it’ll support the appropriate development of baby’s natural positioning, it’ll help stimulate and regulate your little one’s systems.
In the meantime, you’re blurry eyed and can barely think straight and don’t even remember whether this is the same blog post you read last week. Mama, we hear that! So we’re gonna break it down for you.
