That's what the folks behind Babywearing International think anyway.
They've even devised an entire week each year during which people around the globe celebrate the wonders of this very literal component of attachment parenting.
Some local folks have also planned a bunch of babywearing events, including a demonstration of their slings and things at the Troy Waterfront Farmers' Market this Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
I can tell you, demostrations are good. As in "GUD." I kinda struggled through it alone at first, but I'm glad I did.
I tell you, without my tiny little arsenal of slings (which we still use) I'd have been waving a white flag long ago.
