    And just to add, just because you discuss what you have seen other parents doing does not always mean you are judging them.
    You may not be judging them but quite a few posts are quite judgmental, in terms of what the mother was doing at the time.

    Okay - so that's why you say some of the things you say? I often read your posts and think you cannot possibly mean that. But it's shock value to express a point?




    As for it being work for the child, we don't know that. My 3.5 year old begs to carry the 3 month old. So much so I decided she's big enough (8kgs) I let him hold her purely to put him off the idea! (as in my hands were 2cms away so when he said "too heavy!" I took her back immediately.)
    And when I was 8 I'd have begged to look after little babies/children. I always chose to baby sit family friends children at gatherings. For some children caring for babies is way better than play.

    Though I do agree a soft-structured carrier would have been better and I do hope she wasn't totally unsupervised.
