The Rebozo is a baby carrier that is increasingly revalued and appreciated. Here we explains what it is, how it is made and how it is used.
The babywearing is a clear revaluation and an increasing appreciation. However, still too often mothers and fathers let themselves be intimidated by the idea of a support to bring children that are not already ready for use, perhaps giving up a priori the unparalleled emotion of bringing their child into the band!
There are really a lot of things that could be told about this type of babywearing. We are sure that explanations and advice will be very useful to those who want to experiment with Rebozo and are looking for a healthy, safe, comfortable and ergonomic baby carrier. Much easier to approach than it seems.
It is, quite simply, a long baby carrier of medium-thick fabric that is used to “carry” children. Introduced by Mexican traditions, they wraps and knots baby around the body to get proper support of baby weight.
Technically, it is an unstructured baby carrier, as it has no knots, buckles, or pre-formed seams.
Here, in detail, the characteristics of the Rebozo …
The Rebozo is wrapped around the body of the bearer and the child, who is then accompanied and seated in an intersection of flaps, above the center of gravity of the wearer and perfectly adherent to his body. Finally, the binding is the last to guarantee a comfortable position for both.
There are various types of ligatures and with only one long rigid band it is possible to optimally accompany the growth of children, from newborns to older children, always finding the most comfortable and suitable position.
The Rebozo can be used in the 3 canonical positions: front, side and back. Every mother will be able to understand (experimenting) what is the best position for her age and her child’s needs. Some ligatures can be pre-knotted and prepared calmly before inserting the child, while others are made in itinerant and can be readjusted on the go.
