There ARE safety guidelines...its called: how to use a sling or wrap properly. avoid those horrid bag slings like the infantino. Which one is best depends on your needs. The most forgiving for beginners is the Moby. It is stretchy though and I find that after 15lbs or so it needs adjusting as it is worn (not a big deal). I used the moby a lot. When my baby got bigger I found that a non stretchy wrap was better expecially for a back carry. I use a mei tai for a quick easy back, front or side carry especially if I know my baby is likely to fall asleep while I'm doing light housework. If I'm doing more vigorous chores where I'm doing a lot of bending I go for my non-stretchy wrap, but a ring sling would work nicely too. For a really really fast easy on easy off I use a sarong for a kanga back carry.

By the way, don't worry so much about other people. Those other people have a neck. They can turn their head. You'd be better off getting a nursing bra and a nursing shirt so that you can be comfortable, but you don't necessary need to use your sling/wrap like a shield. Especially this time of the year, it is so hot. Unless someone is being a busybody or has their face in your space they shouldn't see anything.
