I saw this journal article on one of the babywearing groups I belong to. I thought it was super interesting. Would love to know any of your thoughts....

Infant Carriers and Spinal Stress

I've never liked the front Baby Bjorn type carriers for that very reason. I especially don't see how they can be comfortable for boys. I love slings when they are little. As long as we are talking about back problems, though, my back can't handle the sling after a certain weight. When I get to this point, I love my Ergo, which supports the whole bottom and seems pretty comfortable for my guy.

Been thinking about you and praying for you since your post about Micah. Thanks for being willing to share and be vulnerable. I miss you!

Yes, that's part of the reason I became such a big sling fan. It is so versatile for all the different ages as baby develops!

Unfortunately the Bjorn and other popular pack carriers put stress on the infant spine. I think many people assume the opposite because a sling is a piece of fabric and they think it offers no support or think that because baby is curled up it "looks bad for them."

This is a good article. Thanks for sharing it. It's great to have a place to refer people if they have questions.
