Mums of newborns often say that one of the best things they had was a baby wrap. This allows tiny babies to be close to Mum's chest, so they can feel her warmth, smell her and hear her heartbeat. This allows their hands to be free so they can get stuff done. This is especially so when there is are toddlers and other young children to care for. Newborns are quickly comforted and fall sound asleep!
