Could keeping a child in an infant carrier too long could delay the child's development?

Could keeping a child in an infant carrier too long could delay the child's development?

Yes: Infants need human contact and stimulation to develop and stimulate their brains optimally. Stimulation includes touching, such as holding, kissing, cuddling, tickling. This isn't happening alone in an infant carrier. Infant carriers should be used for what it says - to carry the infant from point A to point B and that's it.

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?

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?

3 yr old in my sons pre school has mumps. Could the teacher (who kisses kids) be a silent carrier of mumps? She is supposed to babysit my son&infant. 

3 yr old in my sons pre school has mumps. Could the teacher (who kisses kids) be a silent carrier of mumps? She is supposed to babysit my son&infant. 

Unlikely: There is no silent carrier for mumps. There are asymptomatic infections, but even asymptomatic, they develop mumps immunity. I would ask the teacher if she had documentation of 2 MMR vaccines. If she had, it is highly liekly that she is immune to mumps and therefore she cannot infect other persons. Parotid gland swelling occurs with other virus infections, so make sure that it was mumps. ...Read more
