After carrying my baby around in my belly for eight months now, I’m getting pretty excited for the day when I can throw my husband a baby carrier and make him shoulder the load for a bit. Plus, I think using a baby carrier will be super convenient at times when I just don’t want to lug a big stroller around, not to mention when I want to go on a hike or an arm-pumping walk. So it is, of course, disconcerting that certain baby slings have been recalled because of three infant deaths. The concern is that an infant can be smothered if the sling isn’t worn properly. Is this a concern for you baby-wearing moms out there?
