no omg i wish it is the 1/50 i cant take that chance she can reach the top of the kitchen cupboards she is a monkey and she is just turning 5 but i deal i am really good at walking around in the dark and know where everything is so i guess this is what works in our house

there's another one - you can't smoke while babywearing (of course you shouldn't smoke anywhere near a child, but particularly horrid to do it while the baby is right there on you).

OK, on the ironing thing. That just can't be safe! I"ve thought about it, as I likely wouldn't have had to quit my job if I could have worn Rachel while ironing, but she'd grab or kick the iron. Even on my back she could still twist & reach it.

I have to say I agree about the ironing. But we'll leave it open and give no points to anyone for that...

We've done downhill skiing.Skiing pic

My DH is practically an olympic level skiier, and I always joke that he's more secure on skis than he is walking. So, I was more than ok with it.

I saw someone do this yesterday! Ironically, I always felt like everytime I ran into this woman she tried to slip a comment into our conversation to make herself feel like the more crunchy, uber-ap parent or whatever.

I felt bad for the baby, but laughed pretty hard at how she could be so condescending and then do something even the most mainstream unattached parents know is wrong.

And to the poster about the IUD - I have had an IUD put in while babywearing...it's not a big deal, basically like getting a pap, so if you have the baby in a front carry it works fine.

You guys, I am so behind and I promised to tally up the scores. Really, I'll do it this time. Really. Unless someone else volunteers.

"you can't rollerblade while babywearing" - Yes you can Ive seen many people on the boardwalks doing it

you cant get a spray on tan while BW

You cant get an epidural while BW

Not sure if this has been refuted but.. Somebody said you cant use the restroom while BW but I have many times! I put baby on the front and go about my business

You cant swim in the deep end while BW

You cant jump on a trampoline safely

You cant leave a baby behind at a store while BW

You cant tandem nurse while BW toddlers (or can you?)

You can't clean your gutters while wearing your baby

My dh DID!!!! Our first baby was a few days old, born at home. Home by the way was under construction and we had no running water, so I left baby with DH and went to the neighbors for a shower. When I came back what did I see but DH up on the roof cleaning gutters with 2 day old in the sling!!! My heart just about jumped into my throat. Sometimes things that shouldn't be done are done by the very stressed and inexperienced. IT took a while before I could trust him alone with baby again.

You can't (or at least shouldn't) wear your baby while climbing trees

I guess it just depends on how high? I've climbed very low sturdy branches while BW. Sitting in a tree is very theraputic. I've also chased my toddler to get him back down low branches of trees before he gets too high.

Well like we have discussed, some things are physically possible but so dangerous that they are contraindicated. Like cleaning the gutters. If my DH had done that, I think I would have been wearing my baby at his funeral, and then in jail. Argh!

"You cant leave a baby behind at a store while BW"

Okay, can we generalize that and just say it is physically impossible to be separated from baby while babywearing, by definition?

We have a small trampoline (rebounder) that we used a lot to put ds to sleep while babywearing (gentle bouncing).

Dh once changed his shirt with ds (about 2 mo) asleep in a pouch. I don't know how he did it, but I was only gone about 10 minutes and I know he didn't put ds down because he always woke up right away if we did that.

Until ds started taking naps in bed (a couple months ago), I would only iron while he was asleep in a back carry. I didn't want him walking around while I was ironing. It seemed fine to me since he was asleep.
