 That's the point, it's not really possible to FFO without it being unsafe for the baby or mom. Once you put the baby's back to you the baby's weight, even if you do get a woven wrap or other carrier to go knee to knee, will pull down and the legs/knees won't be able to stay in the correct position. It can also be a problem with asphyxia. It's really hard on a mom's back and shoulders as well, the weight is pulling away from you and not working with you.

Thank you for this. I'm a babywearing educator and I was taught not to FFO, not only by instructors by also by Doctors and Chiropractors. It's really not good for the baby.
