6 reasons to use a carrier for exercise
- Fits into your life
No need to fit around nap times, worry about childcare or your baby fussing. With your baby settled in a supportive carrier you can fit exercise into any part of your day. Whether your workout is 10 minutes or an hour long; they’ll be safe, secure and happy and you’ll be hands free to get active!
- Enjoy fun with your baby
Your baby gets to enjoy your exercising too! Babies love movement and music, so they’ll have great fun while you work out. Whether you’re dancing, strength training or just walking; you’ll get active and your baby will have loads to look at and enjoy too. It’s a great way to bond and enjoy time together.
- Improve your mood and energy levels
With the sleep disruption and attention that being a parent involves, we all have times of feeling low. Regular exercise helps to boost your mood and increases your energy levels, so you’ll be better prepared to take on your busy days!
- You CAN get a great workout
You might think that your exercise potential is limited if you’re carrying your baby. But it doesn’t have to be! With your baby in a secure carrier you can do loads of strength building lower body exercises, compound movements, dance moves and stepping exercises.
With your baby’s weight evenly distributed around your torso your core will get a great workout too. With an increasing range of babywearing exercise classes on offer, you can try interval training, Pilates and even Salsa!
- Gives you extra strength training
However small, your baby will be adding pounds to the weight you’re lifting and moving. You’ll really feel those squats and lunges with a growing baby on your front! As your baby grows, you’ll be gradually increasing strength training for your core and lower body.
- Burn calories without thinking about it
You don’t even need to try to ‘work out’ when you use a baby carrier. Simply walking and moving around with them securely strapped to your body will help strengthen your muscles and increase your stamina. A good carrier that’s properly fitted will keep you supported and comfortable, and carrying those extra pounds will burn more calories too!
