I am currently pregnant with our first, and I am so interested in ring slings for carrying our newborn. No one I know uses a baby carrier...it's all strollers and convertible car seat gadgets, but I know you guys know the answers! :)
I've been reading up quite a bit but haven't found any answers to these 2 questions:
I watched some tutorials on using ring slings, but I couldn't tell....is there ANY danger of your baby sliding out the bottom of the sling? I assume it has to do with snugging up the rings really well, but I keep wondering when you lean forward a bit if the sling swings away from your body, and they can slide out feet first? How do you prevent that? (Maybe it just doesn't happen, but I've never gotten to try it so I only have my imagination).
My second question is about winter. Do any of you babywear through winter? I live in the northern US, and we get quite a lot of ice in the winter...do people still babywear when it may be slippery? Are their any rules for winter (I'm thinking it must be front-wearing only??)
I'm so excited about this whole concept....I've never wanted to shove around a big stroller and would much prefer to have my baby against me!
