Baby carrying

I keep seeing posts across the internet cautioning parents to baby carrying. There was a post saying that facing in is fine, but that outward is not good for their hip development. Very curious to learn more! Is there a way to baby carry in a way that’s okay for baby development? Thank you!!

Hi there, welcome! I found this really interesting article that talks about how the outward facing position can put some pressure on the hips and spine. But like everything else, small amounts of time probably are ok, the issue becomes the body mechanics and posture of baby (and you!) when you’re holding your baby in the outward facing position for longer periods.
I found this article that’s really interesting!
