When my children were babies, I never used a baby sling. It’s not that I didn’t trust them, I simply didn’t trust myself. I just don’t have that kind of coordination to carry around a baby, shop, clean, and do whatever else that needs to be done throughout the day. That’s why I either used a stroller for transportation out of the house or carried my baby the conventional way, in my two arms.
But I know of a lot of moms who love using baby slings. They are convenient, accessible and allow for hands-free movement. That’s why a lot of people are shocked over this heartbreaking
