so as i am researching what to buy next since ds has outgrown the cradle carry in our pouch sling, i have come accross advice to not wear babies facing out--some people talk about physical reasons, some talk about pshychological reasons. we have found the kangaroo carry in the sling is the only way that ds likes to be carried now that he can control his head (which i think would be fine for his spine [?], but he is not going to last long in that position at the rate that he is growing!) and he gets real pissy if i try to put him facing inward in the sling or trekker, or on my back, unless he is already in a deep slumber. i am wondering if any of you mamas could share your experiences of babes who want to be out there in the world instead of nuzzled against you (does it make a difference that he's a leo?) and info about carrying facing out in general? i have done a bit of searching and have not been able to come up with much, so if this has been discussed before, or you don't want to go into detail i would also appreciate being directed to other discussions or sources of info. thanks!!
