I love, love, love babies but I cannot imagine actually having one and being responsible for it!! There's days I wonder if the dog will survive my supervision ahaha

I'm the last person to talk to if you want to cure your baby fever. My pregnancy was awesome, labor was a breeze and, other than her traumatic five days after birth and the initial five weeks of screaming, my kid is a smiling, giggling, happy little obsession of mine.

Is there something really wrong with front facing baby carrying? (I mean like actual health reasons.)

I ask because there was this picture of two seemingly happy sleeping babies (and happy couple) walking in the park with their babies in those kangaroo carriers (facing out) on HONY and the comment section is like a war zone!!

facing out in a proper carrier (with hips and bottom in a seated position) is not really a big deal (as long as baby is old enough to hold head up) but those crotch danglers are not good for developing babies when they just kind of hang (front facing or not) though I am sure plenty of people will say they used them and had no issues...I personally would not.

I can never find it but there's a great website that shows why crotch danglers are bad, more so for the spine than the hips.

Even with good carriers like Becos and Ergos it isn't recommended to outward-face carry very often or for very long. It's hard on baby's back and on the person carrying the baby because the weight of the baby isn't leaning naturally against the parent's body. I'll see if I can find the link, but basically that's my rambling summation.

Yes, sorry I wasnt clear, I meant when the hips and bottom are in a seated position that is the proper position...but what it affects is the spine
