Benefits of Using Serena and Lily Baby Slings

Sep 6, 2008
One of the most popular items for gifting to new parents or for new parents to purchase on their own is the Serena and Lily baby sling. These slings have become increasingly popular because more moms and dads are recognizing the benefits of carrying the baby in this way over other methods. Below are some of those benefits.

Reduced Fussiness

If you're worried about having a fussy baby, the Serena and Lily baby sling might be a good solution. According to one study, when mothers carried their infants in this way the baby's fussiness decreased by half at night at by about 40% during the day. That's great news for parents, especially if they have a baby suffering from colic.

Improved Parent Mobility

Carrying a baby without a sling means your hands are always going to be full. If you have other children, even getting them a glass of water can be a challenge since you won't have any extra hands to operate the faucet or hold the glass. With a Serena and Lily baby swing, however, your hands will be freed up and you can do whatever needs to get done around the house whether or not your baby is asleep.

More Convenient and Discreet Breastfeeding

Regardless of where you stand on public breastfeeding, increased discretion is always going to be an asset. Because the baby in the Serena and Lily sling is so close to your breast anyway, feeding him or her is much easier. Plus, studies have shown that babies tend to eat better and more often when they are carried close to their mothers in this way.

Improved Learning for the Baby

When your baby stays in the crib, he or she doesn't get to experience much of the world. That's not a good way to encourage early learning and early positive experiences with the world around him or her. With a Serena and Lily sling, however, you can carry the baby almost everywhere and give him or her a wide-range of experiences that may provide educational benefits later on. At the very least, these early exposures may minimize nervousness and fear later in life.

Enhanced Bonding

The Serena and Lily sling also encourages improved bonding between the child and the parents. Because the sling puts the two so close together, they have more changes for touching and for learning to communicate with one another through body language. This makes the two more comfortable with one another and makes it easier for the parent to understand the needs of the baby.

More Comfort for the Baby

Remember that for many months of life the baby lived close enough to hear the mother's heartbeat so now that sound is one of comfort and reassurance. When a baby is carried in the Serena and Lily sling, he or she is again close enough to hear this sound and that will improve the baby's mood and sleep patterns.
