Carrying your baby or toddler in a sling is perfectly safe when practiced correctly. As with all things in life a cupful of knowledge and a sprinkling of common sense is the best recipe to ensure happy babywearing for you and your little one. Use a quality carrier and make sure you read the instructions on its use.
As a Trageschule UK trained babywearing instructor, I can help answer any questions regarding sling safety or which carrier is best for you and your little one. Please contact me at mail@lovetobenatural or on 0845 519 6212.
I only promote slings and carriers that provide optimal positioning ('M' position) for the development of baby's hips and spine. I do not, have not, and will never stock bag slings or any other slings that fail to promote optimal positioning and comfort for you and your child. If you have a bag sling I would advise you to stop using it immediately. We stock slings and carriers that provide great support and the best possible positioning for your baby.
