What are your thoughts on carrying your baby facing out? I have put a lot of thought into it, and I can think of several reasons I don’t feel it’s safe. I’m not here to judge anyone, or point any fingers, but to share my opinion on the matter. When it comes to my children there are a few things that are very important to me – their safely, comfort, and bonding time.
Naturally I want to be sure my children are safe, and seeing children dangling in a carrier facing out looks uncomfortable. I’m the type of person that I try to put myself in someone else’s place, and I come up with my own conclusion based on what I feel, because at the end of the day I know I love my children more than anyone, and I am going to do what I feel is right. I am going to have to agree with all the statistics about baby wearing, and making sure baby is faced inward. From my point of view it just looks more comfortable, better for bonding time, and like it puts less stress on the little baby body.
In my opinion wearing baby facing outward doesn’t provide the infant with any support, they just dangle, and it looks horribly uncomfortable. Wearing baby facing inward with their knees pulled up to your waist not only looks like it’s more comfortable, and provides more support. It looks like it’s more fun, and better for bonding. Personally wearing Mattie facing inward on walks was some of our best bonding time. She’s right there snuggled up next to me, we’re able to talk, giggle, and I love the way it felt when she was sitting close to me.
Carrying baby facing out looks like there is a lot pressure on the pelvis, no support for an infant’s head, and their poor little backs don’t look very comfortable.’m including an infographic with some great information, it’s called 9 Reasons not to carry your baby facing out.
