Abstract

Babywearing is defined as the act or practice of keeping an infant close to an adult’s torso by using a supporting device that straps to the front of the adult’s body (Merriam-Webster, n.d.). The practice of babywearing as an adjunct to therapy is likely to be beneficial to children and caregivers. Although research on babywearing is limited, the therapeutic benefits of “skin-to-skin care” or “kangaroo care” have been empirically established. Building on this research, this article attempts to raise awareness about babywearing by elucidating the likely therapeutic benefits for children with disabilities or special needs and areas for future research.
