* REAL MEN WEAR BABIES *
If you have photos of a great man in your life wearing your baby, and you'd be willing to share for a REAL MEN WEAR BABIES photo collage that will appear here, send to Born2BWorn@gmail.com. Include any information if you would like (name/location/baby's age/type of sling/wrap) or you can send anonymously without any info.
The purpose of this collection is to demonstrate that fathers DO frequently wear their little ones as well as mothers, and to encourage other dads to give it a try.
Babywearing has been shown to significantly impact attachment, bonding, and trust between fathers and their children - a social bond that lasts into the teenage years and beyond. Father babywearing as also been shown to decrease stress hormones and lower blood pressure and hypertension in both men and their babies.
Let's get Dad involved alongside Mom!
