Re: Are we hurting her by holding her too much?

Studies have, indeed, shown that children in cultures where babywearing is most prominent do develop more slowly than their peers in cultures where BW'ing is less common. Are these delays permanent, pervasive, or detrimental? No. My daughter didn't sit until between 6-7 months or walk until almost 14 months. Is she permanently scarred? Not so much. I wouldn't worry. Yes, it is possible there may be a small delay, but nothing to worry about. The only delays one should worry about are those caused by a larger problem.
