Re: Crotch danglers??

I had a jeep crotch dangler with dd. thank goodness for the Internet and forums. I soon learned about the ergo. I got it when she was 4 months old. With my second kiddo I learned about slings and wraps and kinder packs. Sooooo much nicer. Dd1 was my most difficult baby too. I wonder if that's because I didn't have any awesome carriers for her. Would have made life so much easier.

Re: Crotch danglers??

Drives me insane! I couldn't use those on my babies. Not good for their little hips

Here's the thing. Sometimes moms do what works. I bought an Ergo. I bought three different kinds if ring slings. I bought a Becco. I spent hundreds. My baby hates ALL of them. All. Of. Them. Know what my baby thinks is the bees knees? A damn snuggli that cost four bucks at a thrift store. Do I love that it's a crotch dangler? Of course not. Are there times I have to be mobile and a baby carrier is the best option? You bet. I hate the side eye I get from moms who are silently judging me like I'm doing irreparable harm to my baby...so let's be more forgiving of one another - we're all doing our best.

Re: Crotch danglers??

honestly ladies? babyearing is a sweet and wonderful thing regardless of the type of carrier. Snugli/Bjorn tyle carriers have been around for a long time and i don't know of a single adult with hip problems from being worn in one a a baby. has it never occured to you that the *dangers* might be a little overhyped?! my baby hates all SSCs - bjorn, ergo, WCHB dream carrier, and mei tai (those are what we've tried). he loves wraps and ring slings. am i glad? of course! they're the most comfortable for me too, and the prettiest...but would it matter if he liked the bjorn? no.

Re: Crotch danglers??

I had no idea brand names and types of carriers until I started reading on diaperswappers. I had what everone here calls a crotch dangler with my oldest. Her legs turned purple within the first 5 minutes of wearing her in it. I switched to our ring sling. As I have been able to wear my daughter comfortable to 45lbs in it I have never seen any reason to try another type of carrier. I have and still use a ring sling for all my babies.

But don't bjŲrn type carriers often face outward only? To me that seems extremely overstimulating, whereas facing in is snuggles and love (and nursing!). I notice when a I wear my daughter in an ssc, she can give me huge hugs and wrap her legs around me, even. Even if you don't know someone with hip problem directly related to a carrier, it still does not make it an optimum position.
