Everytime we bring Raees out, say to the shopping complexes, we would usually bring along the stroller. When situations are not suitable for a stroller, we would simply carry him.
Being a big boy (9.3kg and growing) it definitely does get very tiring. When he was younger I used the carrier. I only used it that one time coz it felt quite difficult to put him in and take him out of it.
Then I got my very own ring sling...
Now I get to carry him around (hands free) with ease! Don't we look like mommy and baby kangaroo? :D
I haven't used it outside the house just yet. My mother raised her concerns about Raees having to spread his legs in the sling - since he's not able to walk yet and afraid that he might end up being bowlegged (walk terkangkang).
I understand that much younger babies can be put in this type of sling, with legs spread. I googled around and found no evidence of sling babies being bowlegged.
Even so, is there a reason to be concern?
