The Pouch or Sling style keeps the baby positioned on your body. It is very simple to use and is suitable for newborns. Moms like this type for the privacy it provides when breastfeeding. Baby pouch carriers or slings
can pose a suffocation hazard to babies, so when using this type of carrier be aware of the position of your baby at all times. Be sure the baby's face is not covered and is visible to you at all times.
Slings can also be used with older children as a hip carrier. One drawback to baby pouch or sling is that all the weight is focused on one shoulder, also sizing is important so one sling cannot always be
shared with other adults.
