Safety testing your carriers

No matter how gently you treat your carriers they are made of fabric and are not indestructible. They can tear or fray just like any other fabric item, but with a carrier a tear can be dangerous. The best way to prevent potentially dangerous tears is to regularly inspect and test your carriers for signs of weakness. 

 I found out the other week ago, that one of my carriers stitching was starting to come apart and that it wasn’t in very good shape.   Thankfully, this was pointed out to me by a fellow babywearer as I hadn’t really paid attention to the stitching on it before.

I came across this blog post today and thought it really is a great idea to test our carriers every so often.   This is important, whether you get a used or a new carrier,  always test it first.
