There is no bond in this world like the bond between a mother and a child. A mother has a special bond with her and it is generally said that the love a mother has for her child is unconditional and stays for the entire life. A child after growing up may get to know other people and become close to them, but it is the mother, whom the child gets to know first and forms a relation with. Some newborn and infant kids are so close to their mother that the moment their mother gets out of their sight, they tend to feel insecure and start crying.
Looking after an infant child is a big responsibility for a mother but if a child is very closely attached to the mother, it can sometimes be quite a pain for the mother, who cannot focus on any other activity including the activities of a daily routine.
One of the basic need of a woman post pregnancy is to stay healthy and fit and in order to achieve this purpose, a woman should exercise regularly. Since it is very difficult to exercise with the baby in their hands, most women with newly born babies are now turning to ‘Baby Wearing’.
Pinkathon, which is an organization working for women’s health and fitness, is promoting ‘Baby Wearing’ in a big way through all its members. The idea behind promoting ‘Baby Wearing’ is Pinkathon’s strong belief that irrespective of the condition of the woman, every woman should exercise and stay fit and remain healthy at every point in her life. Our traditional society believes that women should take rest after giving birth to a child for at least few months but Pinkathon is changing this belief by encouraging ‘Baby Wearing Walk’ which has prompted women to continue looking after their health post pregnancy also.
The advantages of ‘Baby Wearing Walk’ have been experienced worldwide for both the mother and the newborn child. ‘Baby Wearing’ ensures that the baby is most comfortable and cries less and provides the woman a chance to focus on other activities like looking after her own health by walking or running. In a way, by encouraging ‘Baby Wearing’ among women, Pinkathon is helping babies to learn faster.
A newborn baby is more accustomed to mother’s womb and with the efforts of Pinkathon to promote ‘Baby Wearing’; the new born is given the same environment outside the mother’s womb. This also helps a child to grow much faster and feel secured.
