Human babies were designed to be held by human adults. But in our isolated nuclear families, boy do our arms and backs get sore! And, heck, even if we weren't virtually the only adults in our baby's life, we wouldn't want to be just sitting around holding a baby while life passes by. The solution: wear the baby. Wear the baby close to you so communication between mom and babe is easy and you still have arms free to do things in the house or out.
