I'm new to this board, just introduced myself in the Intro section and posted a question about co-sleeping.
Wondering if any of you have heard that carrying a baby in a baby-bjorn type carrier puts too much pressure on the babies hips and is not good for them? A lacation consultant told me this. I've been using the New Native Sling and my daughter seems to like it, plus I can breastfeed her in it. BUT, there are times that I think the Bjorn would work better (like to take evening strolls to help calm her down but not have her all bunched up in the sling. ALSO, when it's a bit warm outside (I live in FL), the sling can be a little suffocating, and I thought the carrier would have more breating room. Any thoughts on potential problems with that front carrier?
