My wifes sister was strapped on her grandmothers back while she worked in a rice patty to try and get enough food to eat so they all didnt starve to death for 10 hours a day.

Everyone seems to be missing the point.

1. no one seems concerned about the babies age

2. no one seems concerned about the gas fumes, and it is not like a parent who has to do this.

3. the child's head was not supported at all in this back carrier

4. I really don't care what other people do, just would not choose to do this myself, and wondered what others thought.

5. I am all for babies carried on parents properly.

Anyone else remember the poster who said he took the mower into the living room and cranked it up just to see his family's reaction?

So I guess stranger things have happened.

No Op you are correct the baby needs head support when very young, but as they grow they need to exercise their neck, by being able to hold it up themselves its healthy.

By a certain age 3-4 months.

Re: Would you or have you ever mowed the lawn (gas mower-loud) with an infant on your back without head neck support?
This is full of ignorance. It's safer for the child to be on the caregiver's back than to be running around while he's mowing. Just think about that.

Baby carrying or 'babywearing' is the most natural, efficient way to transport your child, accomplish chores, and go about many normal daily routines with little ones.

My partner and I have worn our child on our front, side, and back since she was born. I grocery shop with her on my back- she doesn't terrorize other shoppers or make the experience miserable by running all around or grabbing items off the shelf. Traveling is a cinch with your child on your back- no fuss getting through the airport or traveling to areas that are not stroller friendly.

When wearing a a child properly, it is completely safe, comfortable and helps build attachment between child and caregiver. It also help you to respond to your child's needs quickly.

Our child is four now, and we still wear her at festivals, on hikes, in crowded areas, at the zoo, downtown, etc. she's so comfortable that she even falls asleep on our backs, which means we don't have to interrupt our activities to get her home to take a nap.

Just google 'babywearing benefits' :)

I have a riding mower. It has a seat switch. It's impossible for the deck to run while I am not sitting on the seat. So if the baby is attached to me, it could not get cut by the deck.

Why? Because over the history of lawn mowers a couple few hundred kids have been hurt or killed? Then we should not let kids ride bikes, skate board, ever be allowed in car, etc etc etc. Come on how stupid.

Err on the side of caution. Wait until someone else can look after the infant.

Mowing a lawn should not take precedence over the safety of a child especially when there are safety concerns.

When the government subsidizes your health care, they can demand certain "lifestyle" adjustments to limit risks to the policy holder.

Thank you, Obamacare...the nanny state is in full swing. (then again, it's still not smart to take unnecessary risks with small kids...)

I strap mine to the grass catcher with bungee cords...

Works great.

When I can't find the bungee cord, I just tie it off with cord and drag it behind me.

I have to vote No, not ok ever because its so cheap to have someone come mow the yard for you.. or have someone WATCH your child for you for a short time..

How would you know if your baby is crying? not getting heat exhaustion? Whether or not the baby is possibly staring at the sun... causing retinal damage..

I am a person who is all for personal liberties but there could be a low level of endangerment here.. its a helpless child.. come on man..

Maybe not the best idea but just decades ago people did worse without thinking about it and most kids ended up surviving..nowadays people want to put them in a protective bubble from the moment they're born, turning them into entitled pussies tbh
