Do people ever look at you strange when you are babywearing? - Page 3

post #41 of 43
I've had people say of dd, newborn, in a pouch-"are you sure she can breathe??!?!?!?!?!!?" oh, like a MILLION times.

of ds in a pouch, turned slightly on the back of my hip, older, -"You're cutting off his circulation!" and "he's falling!he's falling!"

I also had a completely anal woman follow, yes, follow me around an Art and Wine festival and completely disturb peaceful ds who was on my back in my pouch(I am very experienced this way with ds, with a pouch.We used to do it to get him to sleep) and tell me how horrible I was that that was terrible for him, I was cutting off his circulation, his legs were spead to far, etc.

People can be downright rude.
Some young guy in Tj's actually asked me if"their legs spread that far?"

Um, yeah. They are spread, aren't they??!
For the record, ds goes around all day practicing the splits though, no joke.

I've had lots of other things said. The thing that tops the cake is the number of rude stares while carrying a toddler that apparently "can walk himself"

When ds2 was about 3 months old, 2 little old ladies walked up to me in wal-mart and just oooooh'd and ahhhhhh'd over my sling. One of them commented on how handy that would have been, she had 5 kids in 4 1/2 years (that blew me away!!!!!) They were both totally positive.

on the topic of "wish I had those when my kids were growing up" our librarian was telling me the other day that when her ds was a baby (30 yrs ago) they had a sling that they wore him in. The dad was going to school then and would walk around a night with the baby in the sling while he was studying.
So definately not a new invention.
