Babywearing is not just for babies, and many families with children who provide comfort 'wear' older children for as much as needed from 5 minutes to reassure an anxious child, to providing a safe place for a child with ASD or other challenging when out and about, and/or for children with physical challenges, especially in locations where buggies are an issue to use.
