    1. What would you prefer? The baby in the stroller?

      “Oh, dad — can’t see over the edge of the railing!”

      Or better yet — “We can’t get *up* there because of the stroller. Damn junior ruined our trip!”

      Do you object to the fact that the child is sleeping? ‘Cause that just proves y’all don’t have kids…

    2. YOUR LAST COMMENT PROVES YOUR A LAZY MORON! IF YOU DONT WANT TO TAKE ON THE RESPONSIBILITY OF KEEPING YOUR CHILD COMFORTABLE, SAFE, AND HAPPY THEN YOU SHOULDN’T BE BREEDING

    3. are you kidding me? Parents who baby wear are much more concerned about their babies safety and comfort than parents who are too lazy to hold or touch their kids by isolating them in a stroller.. You are a moron, do you even have kids?
      Parents baby wear because they like being close to their babies, when you love someone you like to be close to them, Also babies are very comforted by being held close to their parents. It is not in any way lazy parenting.. it is loving parenting.

    4. Me and my wife use something simmilar. Did you even look at the pic???? The baby is facing forward. The flap on top is to cover there head to block them from the sun.. same as putting a blanket over the car seat if its too sunny. If you notice the straps to the flap are connected over the shoulder to actually PROTECT the babys head from going back to far and hurting there neck. It can be worn on the front as well.I bet over half the people that talked shit about this are people that are sad and alone sitting in moms basement. GET A LIFE!!!!

    5. lol parenting fail, ALL OF YOU! In SA you see fat women carrying their kids on their back all the time, and guess what? THATS WHY THE FUCKERS CANT DRIVE!!! You screw over a person’s co-ordination and ability to judge distance this way, by giving them a back to look at for fun 24/7 for the first two years. When they actually, yknow, develop. (Hence the minibus taxi’s from hell over here…) You morons… you’re kids are all going to grow up stunted and visually disabled.

    1. Yah, but a stroller with no human contact is just great? Or is hanging by the crotch in a bjorn better? Nothing against strollers, but my baby prefers to be carried – don’t see how that makes someone a bad parent.

    2. MBRA, you do know that by holding your baby constantly that’s going to turn it into a dependent pussy right?

    3. I just wanted to chime in and say, if you’ve ever taken a Child Development course, holding and nurturing your child will make them more independent and, studies suggest, smarter. Sounds like you were a stroller baby.

  1. Dad: hey honey where’s the baby? I cant find him in the bag.
    Mom: check the side pocket, or the front pocket.
    Dad: nah i already looked.
    Mom: check the bottom of the bag, you know how you always forget to look in > > the bottom, like the last time you lost your keys and the first baby in there.
    Dad: AH CRAP, i think i picked up the wrong bag at the baggage checkout.

    Asswipe parents this is just as bad as the child leash.

    1. OK, First of all, Having a child leash if that’s what you want to call it, is not bad. This is the reason why, If your walking with your child and he or she is getting tired of having to sit all the time, then that kid could get down and walk. But that’s just the thing, the neighborhood any of us could be in isn’t safe enough for the children to be free enough to walk around without getting hit by a car,kidnapped or anything else. So I would rather have my kid safe then dead.

  2. I have to disagree here. If you’ll notice everyone is wearing sunglasses, evidently the sun is bright. You can’t put sunscreen on the eyes. If the child were to fall asleep, this way his/her head won’t roll if said baby, saving a possible neck injury. While not being ingenious, it appears to work. Baby is stable and is able to breath. Regardless of what people say, babies don’t smell so sweet either.

  3. are you guys just dumb or ignorant? that’s an Egro baby carrier with a hood so while the child sleeps it supports their head. hopefully you do some research about these things, if you have kids.

  4. so…. are you guys just dumb or ignorant too? that’s an Ergo baby carrier with the hood up so that while your child sleeps you can support their head. hopefully if you have kids you research these things or know about them.

  5. What is wrong with you? It’s a dad lovingly wearing his baby in an ergo baby carrier (I own two and they are wonderful) The baby has obviously fallen asleep being nice and comfy and close to his parent, and since his father does not want him to get a stiff neck, he has pulled the sleeping hood up over the babies head to support him as he sleeps.. I am sure if the babies head was flopping back you would all be life failing that too..

    It’s better than those people I see with the babies in strollers with the plastic wrap over them everywhere they go.

    Babywearing is one of the most loving things a parent can do!

    1. Agreed. It just looks like a fail, because it seems as though the baby is being smothered. But if you look closely the feet are pointed toward the front.

    2. you commented to blam saying something about are you kidding me? Parents who baby wear are much more concerned about their babies safety and comfort than parents who are too lazy to hold or touch their kids by isolating them in a stroller.. You are a moron, do you even have kids? no parent is lazy or a moran for putting their baby in a stroller that what strollers are for to put your baby in. so when you are shopping or on vacation so your hands can be free to look at stuff when you go to buy souvenir you can place the item you bought at the bottom of the stroller for safe keeping. and your hands will be free to uy more stuff. you can love your baby even tho you place you baby in a stroller. your baby can be just as comfortable and have more room to move around in and be cool and happy in the summer instead of being all hot, sweety, irritated and fussy. my daughter is now 5 yrs old and yes i have put her in a stroller when she was a baby and she knows that i loved her very much. when they get older they get heavier. any mother would know that. im sorry if you dont agree with me on what i said but every one has theri own way of doing things as a parent.

  6. Ummm…the baby is asleep in an Ergo baby carrier on dad’s back. The sleeping hood is up to protect the baby and from keeping baby’s head from falling backward.
    This is in no way a fail but a loving parent with a precious baby sleeping on his back.

    1. and to protect him/her from the sun so they cant get sunburnt you cant put sunscreen on a baby under 6 mos of age unless theres some sunscreen out there that you can put on babies under the age of 6 mos old now.

  8. How is a father allowing his child to sleep lovingly secure against his warmth and heartbeat a fail? This is a beautiful photograph of a child being worn in a carrier designed for just this purpose.

  9. Are you guys serious? This is an Ergo baby carrier. It is DESIGNED and SAFETY TESTED to be used this way. It’s not even a new brand or new concept, it’s been around for a long time. This dad is using the carrier correctly. His child is completely safe.

    Babywearing is one of the most loving things a parent can do!
    It makes me sad to see people post such mean things about something they know nothing about.

  11. Are you guys serious? This is an Ergo baby carrier. The dad in the picture is using the carrier correctly. The carrier is safety tested. That baby is in absolutely no harm’s way, and is surely sleeping quite soundly.

  12. hey son, remember when we took you sight seeing at the great wall of china ? oh wait you had a bag wrapped around your face, but oh well i had fun anyways…

    1. No one has a bag wrapped around their face.. that is the back of the babies head, and it is not a bag it is breathable light fabric that comes attached to the baby carrier made for the purpose of supporting the sleeping babies head, or keeping the sun off of them.

      Know what you are talking about before you comment

  13. Babywearing is a great tool which enables parents to go anywhere with their little one. It’s easier to access places (like the great wall of China!!)without a pram. Secondly the baby feels safe and secure in a strange environment. This baby is obviously comfy….and FYI, the baby is facing into the Dads back, not facing outwards. The fabric is over the back of the head NOT over the face.

    The ERGO baby carrier is a safe and secure way to carry a baby. The sleep hood protects the baby from hars sunlight and stops the head flopping.

  14. That baby is having a lovely sleep on its daddy’s back. What better way to travel with your baby? Baby is safe, comfy and not missing a thing. When he’s tired, he can have a snooze with his head comfortably supported. When he starts to wake up Dad will take the hood off so baby can see the sights again. Perhaps the submitter ‘Failed’ to recognize a wonderful thing when she saw it. This pic shows a true WIN in great parenting. Lucky baby!

    1. maybe because it is a lovely pic of a dad doing something wonderful and loving and healthy for his baby, labeled “parenting Fail” and among photos of parents feeding their children beer and bongs… that is why people are so offended and insulted. Babywearing is in no way a parenting fail, or in anyway anything like a parent giving a kid beer or duct taping them to a wall.

      I could only imagine if I were that parent and saw this pic, I would be pretty furious.

    2. wow… relax… i admit i though it looked weird with that baby all tucked away like that but thanksfor explaning it over and over and over again….. really ONE time was all i needed to see its not a fail people are just poning fun FUCKING RELAX ALREADY!

  15. This culture is so stupid. So if the kid isn’t strapped in a stroller, it’s wrong? People have been carrying their babies in fabric for centuries. This is normal, believe it or not, and that’s a great, safe, tested product.
    Try actually caring for a baby.

  16. I have one of these baby carriers – my kiddo looks to be about the same age, and sleeps pretty much the same way in it. kids need some way of shutting out the light and keeping their heads supported while they nap. these things are not cheap, either! I would think seeing a baby drooping over asleep while facing forward in a Baby Bjorn would be a fail – not this.

  17. I do admit that it seems kind of weird if you are looking at it, not knowing what you are looking at. The dad in question has the ‘sleeping’ hood up. Designed to keep the sun off the baby when the baby is sleeping. Judging by the position of the babies head how it is back against the hood, the baby is alseep.

    This helps prevent the sun from burning the baby, especially the sensitive scalp. Babies shouldn’t wear sunscreen if they are 6 months or under, and for some of you who suggest a hat instead. That may have been an option unless they were like my kids. Who’ve always ripped stuff of their heads.

    Dad is not being fail. However the person who posted this is. 😉

  18. Wow, you haters are a bunch of idiots. Do you even know WTF you’re talking about? It’s an Ergo Baby Carrier (ergobaby.com) and the kid is asleep. BRAVO to that family for following their child’s needs and being attached parents.

    Educate yourselves before you go shooting your mouth off.

  19. good job dad!! punishment in hot boxes is so 19th century, this seem much better, so how long do you let the child suffucate before you release him? just so i know when i try it on jr.

  20. You guys are pretty much lame. Ok, so, They are suppose to do that. When tney fall asleep it helps support their neck so they dont get nerve damage. Buut, it is suppost to be in front, not in the back

    1. Seriously? Don’t post a comment if you have no clue what you are talking about. Ergos are designed to be worn on the front OR back…in fact, when carrying older infants or toddlers, back carries are the preferred method. I can safely carry my 3 year old on my back in our Ergo.

    1. you FAIL… Read the previous posts and Google “ergo baby carrier”. The hood is a breathable fabric that only covers the back of the head to keep it from flopping backwards. The baby’s face is exposed on the other side.

  21. i didnt really like the baby carrier thing .. they where hard tp put on they got tangled up easly and i felt like my daughter could not breath and she didnt like it got got mad everytimg i put her in one, she prefered the stroller she liked to move around, look around, lay down when she wanted. and eat her snacks when she wanted and play with her toys when she wanted. she was happy and i was happy.

  22. If you were smart enough, this doesn’t even look like a fail. But personally, I’d wear it on my front. Cause first of all to obviously be able to take care of the baby if he or she were to fuss and I wouldn’t have to wait for my spouse to check on them and secondly, for the simple convenience of sitting and making sure the baby won’t be hurt by other people not paying attention.

  23. Dude would be a lot more comfortable with baby higher up his back. My son likes to rest his head on my shoulder, when he sleeps.

  24. My wife and I have one of these…if fact my wife sells them in her store. This is the correct way to put the baby in and is in no way “Bad” or a “Fail”. To all of you morons who say “Fail” probably don’t have kids…and in my opinion, shouldn’t bread in any way shape or form. You are all the poster children for mandatory sterilization.

  25. i find that its each to their own in parenting if you prefer to have you child in a pram then so be it and if you prefer to have a baby carrier then thats fine as well peronaly i didnt have a baby carrier as i have a bad back and couldnt use one but my sister used one for her baby and he is fine…my daughter loves being in her pram and she is isolated as her parm is faceinf me while i push it so she see me at all times and i can talk to her and interact with her….

    the people that commented on this saying it was a fail has obviously no children….

  26. I really cant believe everyone judging this father, for carrying this baby, I had 1 of these for all 3 of my children the only difference was it strapped to the front of me not the back, and at least he is blocking the sun from BURNING the babies head, GHHEEESSHHH everyone is so judgmental now days, but all I can say is at least he is making sure the babies head nd neck are secure, unlike some of these morons you see pushing there infants in the old fashion Umbrella strollers that have no support for their infants head nd neck…My opinion is if U dont have a child dont judge until U have become a parent Urself…

  27. >____>
    .. I Thought It Was pretty funny & To Thoose Who Said Hes A Bad Parent , What If He Tripped ? And Fell On Hes Back ? The Baby Wouldve Been Fucked. 1. Cause His Head Probally Took Most Of The Hit . 2 His Dads Full Weight Is On Himm !
