"SlingRider" and "Wendy Bellissimo" Recalled
If you are going to use a Baby Sling make sure of the following:
- Your baby is over 4 Months Old
- That the slings fabric is not covering your baby's nose & mouth
- Avoid "C like positions" where the baby is carried below your chest or near your belly (this causes the baby's neck to flop forward restricting proper air flow)
- Make sure you use an upright sling that that keeps your baby solid against your body.
- Make sure your baby's legs are not pushed up against their chest, this can also restrict breathing
- Keep your baby's face in view
- Baby's born premature or who are sick are at high risk for breathing problems
Slings are like having "tummy time" all the time! They are a great way to provide security to your baby (and to you), feed your baby, vacuum or work while the baby sleeps, keep your baby calm.
When you buy a sling or baby carrier you might want to:
- Choose a model with easy to understand instructions
- Buy a product that fits you & your baby well (make sure you can see your baby's face)
- Check with your retailer or the manufacturer to ensure that the sling or baby carrier meets the ASTM-F2907-12 Consumer Safety Specifications for Sling Carriers Standard.
