be my resource
from my to do list in the last post...
...learn about pros and cons of baby wearing, a very controversial subject, depending on who you talk to"
Do you have a favorite sling? Do you have an opinion on baby wearing? I'm in a dilemma, because I'm normally a fan of structured babywise parenting, but am worried about the baby being vulnerable to our dog and three other kids, namely Clara Joy ;). So far the cons of baby wearing appear to be increased separation anxiety, more frequent nursing (also a pro when you have milk production issues like I do), and less personal space... all biggies.
The pros are less fussiness, more bonding, hopefully better milk supply, and safety from siblings and the family dog.
disclaimer: the cons listed are entirely from the paranoid perspective of a mom who's never tried babywearing.
