A 26-year-old female asked:

Have u heard about ergo baby carriers with infant insert? how safe is that to use for new born to go outside for a wallk?

Appears safe: Ergobaby carriers look good. For newborns i prefer a sling. Anything that supports baby's head and keeps it from flopping around will be ok. Use common sense....These carriers look better to me for slightly older infants.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
