When you're pregnant you get bombarded with free offers, coupons, and the like. Most of it is useless. One cool offer I received was for a free baby sling. I quickly ordered one, since I refuse to pass up a deal.
When it arrived I was super excited. But then, I got comments from two family members about how dangerous slings are, how the baby will fall out, how they're difficult to use, etc.
I don't think they're as dangerous as claimed. As for the level of difficulty, well, I am sure some types/brands are more of a pain than others. But what better way to try it than a free one, right? Besides, women have been carrying their children in slings since the invention of fabric so I assume it couldn't truly be lethal.
Have you ever used a sling before? If so, did you love it or hate it?
