    There's been extensive discussion on this on The Baby Wearer and the reason the froggied leg position is favored is because of hip development. The knees are higher than the bum and this prevents malforming of the hip joint. I personally don't froggy his legs as much as she does, he is more comfortable with his legs up and spread but his feet tucked together under his bum, rather than knees up and feet apart, but some of that is baby's preference and the other is baby's age

    There's some debate on this, but no babywearing moms I know have had hip issues that were not congenital.


    Here's an excerpt about dysplasia and wrapping:

    Since (wraps) place no pressure points on your baby (essentially the baby is wrapped to your body instead of by bearing her weight on her own pelvis), separating*your infant's legs will not harm the baby developmentally.* Some doctors actually encourage keeping the baby's hip spread apart right after birth. This position places the head of the femur (the ball) against the acetabelum (the socket), and encourages deepening of the socket, so if anything it*can actually help prevent hip dysplasia.

    what a sweet boy, I love the pics. I didn't start babywearing until my DS was 5 months old, I'm so excited to do it with a newborn this time. I had a snuggli for my DS when he was born and we both HATED it, it was only when I was desperate to be hands free that I used it (probably twice). Thank goodness for Emily, Jordan and Arty, they all introduced me to the wonderful world of babywearing, now I have a plethora of baby wearing devices that I've bought or made.

    I love the back carry in your picture, unfortunately work has blocked youtube, so I'll have to watch the lesson at home. thanks for posting it

    I love that video! Especially how the baby is just making little happy noises the whole time. It wouldn't have been as effective if baby was crying. I'm going to pass it along to a couple of new moms who are learning to wear their babies.

    as a PT, froggy legged position is good for the hips. Just like side carrying babies is good for them. I wouldn't keep them in that position 24 hours a day, but I wouldn't swaddle my baby 24 hours a day either.

    so cute! I read somewhere (not sure if one of your links mentions this) that holding them facing you is okay for hips since that is how you would normally carrying them (similar to belly to belly holding them in your arms)...versus a young baby in a carrier on your front facing out. I read that is not good for the hips.

    so cute. I love the back wearing vid. I'll have to bookmark it so I can find it when this LO arrives. I just can't seem to get it with DD but maybe I can with #3.

    Wow! Thanks for the references on froggy-style. I may actually try it now that I have found some references FOR it. I'd only found ones warning about splaying a young baby's legs too far!

    Glad you are feeling better!
