I know I've been posting a lot. It's so nice to have somewhere to turn with my questions! I read an article today about hip dysplasia with front facing carriers (http://www.northernmum.com/2013/09/hip-dysplasia-why-we-should-burn-forward-facing-baby-carriers/) and I am concerned. As I have previously expressed, I'm still working on finding a carrier that works for us, so it's not as though I've been using a front facing carrier. However, I do carry my son facing forward sometimes so he can look around and sometimes his legs are dangling when I do so. Also, one of the carriers I was thinking of using (Infantino Breathe) can be front facing and that was part of why I thought he might like it.
Can I get some input from veteran baby wearers on this? Is this research consistent? Should my son's legs never be dangling? If so, until what age?
