The analysis - conducted by Licia Negri in collaboration with Trevisini Editore - aims to obtain reliable data on babywearing in our country and to collect , through an online questionnaire, the experiences of parents , stories of family life which will be included in a book that will be part of the new dedicated Mental Fitness Publishing series to issues related to well-being from a holistic point of view.
In bookstores next spring, the book will be a precious 'consultant' for the family because it will allow parents, absorbed in their daily routine, to learn about the benefits deriving from a high-contact approach and to learn all the techniques and characteristics of the various baby carriers , so that they never lose sight of the most precious gift for their child: receiving security and warmth thanks to the presence of the parent.
As has already happened in countries such as the United States and Australia, through this survey, from today also in Italy, it will be possible to create real awareness of the importance of this method, which 'tastes good' , in the growth of a child and to make people understand the more authentic advantages of a system where physicality is essential.
Thanks to the experience of the author, who sits as a technical expert at the working table of the CEN (European Committee for Standardization) dedicated to risk analysis and risk prevention for products in the childcare sector, particular emphasis will be given to safety issue.
The book , thanks to the contributions of doctors and researchers, illustrates how correct and safe babywearing is a decisive experience for the psychological and physical well-being of mother and child, as well as fundamental in its growth process.
“I agree with researchers and scholars who believe that a child whose needs for security and love are satisfied from birth, thanks to closeness with the mother, will be a more serene and balanced adult in relationships with himself and with others” - comments Licia Negri - “the objective of this research is to raise awareness of Babywearing, a widespread habit in many countries which is also starting to grow here in Italy. It is important to collect data on a very large sample of parents to allow all future mothers to know before giving birth the naturalness of this practice and above all its great benefits".

Licia Negri has a professional path characterized by work and entrepreneurial experience in the sectors of television communication, fashion, luxury, non-profit and artistic professions.
In her career she has received various awards including the Women and Career Award of the Municipality of Milan, the Benvenuto Cellini Journalism Award under the High Patronage of the Presidency of the Republic, Young Leaders of the Italy-United States Relations Council (ConsiUsa). After the birth of her son Luca, she approached issues related to the world of childhood. It was precisely with a view to pursuing the well-being of children from their birth that Licia became interested in the world of Babywearing by founding MHUG ("Mother Hug", literally "Mother's hug"), a company that produces baby carriers.
Among the non-profit projects we remember the start-up of the Laureus Italia Foundation (with the role of general director and board member) and “ all'Arte! ”, a unique initiative for Milan and for pediatric scientific research because it aims to involve excellent artists to grace the city with works of extraordinary artistic and cultural importance, creating important fund raising opportunities. The first artist to be involved was one of the greatest Italian artists, Jannis Kounellis, whose permanent installation, created thanks to the project, is visible to the public in the atrium of the Mangiagalli Clinic in Milan.
He sits as a technical expert at the working table dedicated to safety of the CEN (European Committee for Standardization).
Founded in 1859 in Milan by Enrico Trevisini, the Trevisini Editore publishing house began with the publication of a series of books for young people. His successor Luigi began to diversify his production, dedicating himself not only to the publication of fables, novellas and children's stories, but also to the edition of actual school textbooks for primary schools.
Today Trevisini Editore presents itself as a company which, by maintaining its corporate objectives unchanged and adapting to the latest production techniques, is able to offer and annually update an increasingly complete catalog aimed at the various modern educational addresses.
In 2012 the company further expanded its editorial offering by creating a new brand "Mental Fitness Publishing" which addresses issues related to well-being from a holistic point of view.
