Do you expect a baby but still have an older child that wants or needs to be carried? Babywearing can still be an option for you even though you are pregnant. But due to the changes your body is undergoing throughout your pregnancy, it’s important to check with your medical professional before babywearing. However, for most, if you were already babywearing before pregnancy, you can continue to do so. Once cleared by your medical provider, be sure to listen to your own comfort cues and body.
Tula offers multiple options for you to use when pregnant while babywearing.
Continue reading below to learn our 5 tips for staying comfortable when babywearing while pregnant:
- Try wearing the waistband below your belly when back carrying
As your belly grows, a front carry will likely become less comfortable so we suggest using your Tula Baby Carrier in a back carry. Try to buckle the waistband below your growing belly.
- Ring Sling to stay cool
A Tula ring sling can provide a more breathable option when pregnant. You have less fabric around your body and can position your child above your belly for close cuddles.
- Hip carry with a Ring Sling
A ring sling also offers the option of a hip carry, which makes it easy to hold your child with room for your belly.
- Ring Sling for comfortable back-carry
A Tula Woven Ring Sling is a versatile carrier option that can be tied in different ways to accommodate a growing belly.
- Back-carry with waistband above your belly
For some, especially for those with a smaller baby or a long torso, securing your Tula Carrier waistband above your belly is a more comfortable option.
Be sure you check in with your medical professional when you explore babywearing while you are pregnant. And then, happy babywearing.
