These dads are babywearing their newborns, infants, and babies.  Wrapping is a wonderful way for a dad to help his darling baby feel safe, comfortable, and sleepy.

As your baby grows, it’s the perfect way to investigate and experience the world together and you may find you appreciate baby wraps just as much when your baby becomes a toddler.  The feel and smell of daddy will wash over your baby, becoming a part of his/her warmest and happiest babyhood memories.
