Lauren and Stacey wearing baby wraps slings in Eastenders
What a wonderful turn up for the books! Both Lauren and Stacey in Eastenders have been seen carrying their babies in stretchy baby sling wraps.
Gone are the days of terribly low-hanging baby carriers (as sported by Mick Carter a few months previously), it seems that Eastenders have hired the help of an actual babywearing consultant to show them the best way to carry newborns, and the best thing to carry them with! And in this case, baby wraps win!!!
Stretchy baby wrap carriers are fantastic for newborns as they provide the optimal positioning for babies – knees bought up higher than the bottom, just how baby likes it. (You may realise that when you pick baby up his knees automatically come up- this is why.)
We have seen more and more parents realising the benefits of how wrap slings keep their babies close and protected, and how the skin to skin contact helps babies mentally and physiologically for many years to come (read article here)
Great work Eastenders!
