A 26-year-old female asked:

Is it safe for babies to sleep or nap while someone is baby wearing them (in moby, ergo, ring sling, etc) assuming you're doing it properly?

Yes: It is safe as long as it is used properly and their airway is free and clear. In other countries, babies are "worn" by a mother 24/7!
