I completely agree. 100%. The highest level of parenting is always in seeking balance. Attachment Parenting and healthy, loving sleep habits make a great pair, for me and all four of my kids (the last two being twins who nursed until 2 1/2.) My youngest are 3 1/2 and still nap. They have great relationships to sleep. If they didn't, I likely would not have been able to nurse them both and as long as I did. xo Keep up the great work Kim. Love your education based coaching approach and I recommend your book frequently to the new parents in my baby massage classes. xo Suzanne

 @jaimiVB - that is so AWESOME!!! Changed my life as well. This is the ONLY way I could grocery shop w my twins. One in cart seat and one being worn then half way thru the store - switch. :)

 

When old enough, my guys both transitioned into the hip hold with the very same sling. That is what I like about the double ring sling - the ability for it to grow with my babes. I hear the Ergo type carriers are that way as well but we never went there. Thanks for the nice update and again, I'm so glad it's working well for your 'lil one.

I see your point about the outward facing with the type of carriers you have shown in the photos above. I talk to moms about this alot in my Infant MAssage classes and find alot of Dads prefer this hold for whatever reason. Here's a solution I offer: Use the double ring sling for outward facing. All four of my kiddos have loved this postion. As a PT, I found it wonderful both on my back and my babies spine and hip joints. I posted a video of how to do this here: http://mymommymanual.com/lets-hold-hands/pregnancy-2/

 

Hope this helps. Tahnks again for the informative article.

 @jaimiVB no worries mama!!! i had a lil one that loved to look out too and used my double ring sling to do so. still had hips in "ideal position" this article talks about. I have a video showing how I got my little one forward facing in my double ring sling. safe, comfie and happy, spine curled IN towards me against and between my chest. Here's how: http://mymommymanual.com/lets-hold-hands/pregnancy-2/ IT's like the third or fourth video doen on this page. :)
