For me, i have never gotten a negative comment about slinging, all positive, people are really curious though! One woman hunted me down and came right up to me, put her hand on dds bottom and said, "oh, how sweet" (i hate when strangers touch my baby... even weirder when you're wearing her!)
Anyhow, i get a lot of the old, old ladies asking me about the hospital... one said to me, "what, did they force you out at 3 days? we stayed a week in my day" I responded, "actually, i was out the next morning, but really wanted to leave the same day... she looked shocked, so i added, "I really would have preferred to birth at home, but couldn't afford it, at least it was a drug-free birth." She walked away!!
I don't understand why everyone (well most of my friends and many other people i know) think that staying in the hospital is more comfortable than being home! I was soooo miserable at the hospital, i didn't sleep a wink, too uncomfortable of a bed, especially with a new infant and the nurses come in and out of the room all night long asking questions and taking temperatures!! No thanks, let me go home!!!!!!!!!!
