When we see an infant we usually see them in those portable car seats. The car seats are made to easily snap into the car, and then be lifted out, and moved when needed. These types of car seats do make it a lot easier to get your baby from one place to another. It can be very difficult to hold a baby on your hip all the time. Also many parents do not want to get their baby used to being held all the time. Of course you do not want your baby to expect to be held all the time, but there are times when it may be beneficial to have them out of the car seat. Below you find some benefits of not using your child’s car seat too often, and how it can rally advance your child’s development.
Let your little one see what you see
When you are out and about at the stores shopping, there is so much for a little one to see. Slings are one of the most popular ways to transport your baby around when they are not in their carrier. The sling allows you to keep your hands free, so that you can still shop while holding onto your baby. This will give your baby the ability to look around and see new things. Seeing new things really help them to grow mentally and learn new things. Looking around will also help them to stay occupied while you are shopping.
It will be easier on your back
Believe it or not a lot more damage can be done is you are constantly caring the car seat around. Add the extra weight of the baby and it really does put a lot of extra strain on your back. To lighten your load and make your back feel a little better it is best to carry the baby using a sling or other carrier device.
It will help their development
You will be surprised at how just a little interaction between parent and child can really help a child with their development. As you walk around with your baby you can talk to them, and point things out. This will help with your child’s speech, and many other things. It really is as simple as taking your child out of their car seat and giving them an opportunity to really see the world for themselves, and not from a car seat. Remember that a car seat was originally intended for use only in the car. It was adapted over the years to make moving the baby a little easier.
