It can be magic when you hear an orchestra performs. However, it’s not every day that you see an orchestra perform, let alone one where they have babies strapped to themselves. This is what happed during International Babywearing Week…and the viral video is simply amazing!
Think about how amazing it can be to watch the bond between a mother and baby or even a father and baby. The idea of babywearing has been around for a while now. It is believed that it helps to increase the bond for the baby to ensure he or she feels loved and provided for in the early development.
There are many products on the market that can be used to help you “wear a baby”. The creator of Wrap Your Baby, Diana Rosenfield, decide to gather of a group of musicians to perform “Ode to Joy” by Beethoven.
What better time to do this than during International Babywearing Week? She had them all perform the Beethoven piece while they wore their babies.
The music was played at a low level, so there was no worry about hurting the infant ears. The amazing musicians grabbed their instruments and began to play the symphony. You can see the faces of the babies as they are all very serene and rocking to the music. It was a calming lullaby unlike any other – and it makes me want to have International Babywearing Week every week, but only if we can have performances just like this!
The violinist mother had a tiny baby that was the most adorable thing. These kids are the sweetest and many of them fell fast asleep, being musically drawn in and then rocked to sleep. This was the ultimate bonding experience for the parents and their infant children.
For anyone who has ever been confused about the appeal of wearing a baby, the answer should be clear now. You have your hands free to be able to do anything you want. If you have ever felt tied down and limited to what you can do because you have a baby in tow, this orchestra proves that you can absolutely do anything with a baby. Pursue your artistic talents while you wear your baby! Both hands are free. Even if you’re not a talented musician, you can take photos, draw, or even just clean the house.
Some of the musicians have the babies tied to their front, while others are in the back. Even the conductor has a baby strapped and this is what makes it that much more exceptional. It will be sure to send goose bumps through your body in the best possible way.
