Some mammals leave their babies in hidden places. Other mammalian young are physically developed enough to follow their mothers by themselves right after birth. Quack quack. Our babies don’t fit either bill. Human infants are born far from knowing how to walk and are not meant to be left in nests. Human infants evolved to expect closeness, their survival depends on it. Luckily their flexed little bodies are adapted to being carried.

DS didn't like carriers but I wouldn't leave him stuck in his carseat.
