      Welcome Flame. I hope this commuity of hammock campers can help you learn and
      have fun.

      However, from the get-go - be careful of little ones in hammocks. Though I do
      not have much experience, two risks are obvious:
      - falling - lesser of the two risks
      - getting squished between hammock and adult - greater of two risks

      Either could hurt/kill a little one.
