This wrappers, carriers, mothers have been using them thousand years ago and all throughout the world, they have different names, in Latinamerica they are called "rebozos" and they use them to carry the baby in many positions but always close to them and facing them never facing the other way becasue that is how the baby feels secured and nurtured. This is not an american invention it came from the Aztecs millions of years ago. It has been perfected through the years, and has been adopted by Europe and Westerners. It has the same purpose to carry your baby in the right position and to enhance the physical and emotional development.

It is funny..the pictures of all the moms have their babies facing them, near their chests, hearts, faces, wrapped around their arms or even when carrying the baby on their backs the baby is facing her, always. Now check the two dads, always facing out--the other way, away from them, there is no bonding or nurturing, when the babies are close to the mothers, they can talk to them, cuddle with them, they can touch them naturally, like the way it was intended.
Wow! you--Crhiscanberra, Michelle, and Enon are the ignorant ones: You totally misinterpret what Beth commented. It is not bias, it not stereotypes, nothing to be horrified about. Beth is supporting the role of the father, read her comment again. She is just stating that when the woman is pregnant the baby's position in the womb is naturally nurtured by the mother, when outside, this wrapper or carrier as they call it, has the purpose of the baby being secured and safe like "in the womb" same position, something than males don't have, right? That is all, nothing else.
