It is a dad thing.  I’ve never seen a mom carrying her child this way.  I read a study about the differences in men and women in how they hold their children.  Whereas moms hold their children close to their bodies, facing inward, dads hold their children facing outward as if to introduce them to the world.  Kids love this vantage point and dad’s got their legs.
