Mum issues a warning to baby wearing parents after a very close call in her kitchen that would have really harmed her baby.
Writing on Facebook to warn other parents, Molly Landis wrote: “I don’t normally post this kind of stuff or personal information but after sharing this story with close friends I am urged to share this story.
On Tuesday I was involved in an accident where my stove burner exploded and sent a fire ball to my face, neck and chest. This caused open wounds and burns to my face and chest.
Yes, this is horrible and painful but I haven’t been able to stop thinking about how lucky I truly am. As a new mum I often wear my sweet 4 week old in my wrap carrier (we know we all love being hands free especially with a needy babe)..on this particular night a guardian angel was watching over me and my baby because for the first time in her life she fell asleep in her swing and I wasn’t wearing her while I was in the kitchen.
The worst of my burns is to my chest- exactly where her precious little head would have been laying if she were in her carrier.
The point of my message is to pleaseeeee be cautious of the activities we do while wearing our babies! Since this happened I have had so many mums say “omg, I do that all the time” .. we never think it could happen to us and I never thought it would happen to me. So grateful she wasn’t near the explosion.”

That is so scary! It is definitely something to keep in mind when wearing your baby around the home.
