Fourth you ask? Your body is still full of pregnancy hormones as you adjust to life sleep-deprived with your new baby outside your womb.

Please be aware it's not every sling..or every style of slings. Wraps and ring slings are good..

With all things be aware how to safely and properly use your slings.

I'll be back to post some links and more info. :D :D

Absolutely! It should be brought to the attention of people..especially Mommas and soon to be Mommas. :)

I just want those same people to be aware that babywearing IS a very safe thing overall..when done properly.

From the article....

But not all slings are dangerous, said Pat Shelly, director of The Breastfeeding Center for Greater Washington.

"The safest baby wearing is in a carrier that keeps the newborn baby solidly against his mother's body, in an upright position," Shelly said in an AP interview. "Parents should be instructed to allow the infant to keep his chin off his chest optimizing the airway for breathing."

Agree 100% w/ Meg.
I have this sling and never thought DD was unsafe....b/c I used it correctly.
I would not recommend the Infantino sling to anyone though b/c it's terribly uncomfortable and hurts my shoulder/back.

Sherry,

There was a recall issued so you can now return the sling and not fear them reselling it.

There is a link down in AP and various other forums around here.

And congrats on the twins. They look great! :)
