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.
