Recently, I often see on the streets of young mommies, who wear their babies in slings. I know that some (especially older people) do not approve of such devices. Many people have an argument against them: Here we were wearing on our hands without any slings, and nothing. And you are lazy.
Some consider the slings terribly harmful. Because the child in a sling sits with legs wide apart, and its back is not fixed. Doctors believe that the M-position (posture with widely spread hips) is an excellent prevention of hip dysplasia. And the child’s back in a sling is securely supported by the sling fabric and the child is tightly pressed against the mother.
When my daughters were absolutely crumbs, I had a sling-scarf. Of course, I did not wear two children in it at the same time. But he was very helpful when, for example, Agnes slept in a crib, and Esenia wanted my attention. I put her in a sling and together we cleaned, washed dishes or watched TV.
If I had to leave for business, I could not leave two babies at once on my mother, especially after one year. My old mother with two simply could not cope. In such cases, I took one daughter with me, sitting in a sling, while the other remained with my grandmother.
In my opinion, the sling is one of the most necessary adaptations for young mummies. What do you think?
