Infant Deaths and Baby Carrier's Know The Facts!!!

Over a Million Infantino Baby Slings were Recalled After Links Of Infant Deaths

"SlingRider" and "Wendy Bellissimo" Recalled


If you are going to use a Baby Sling make sure of the following:

  1.  Your baby is over 4 Months Old
  2.  That the slings fabric is not covering your baby's nose & mouth
  3. 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)
  4. Make sure you use an upright sling that that keeps your baby solid against your body.
  5. Make sure your baby's legs are not pushed up against their chest, this can also restrict breathing
  6. Keep your baby's face in view
  7. Baby's born premature or who are sick are at high risk for breathing problems
Slings themselves are a wonderful invention  I personally used one right up until recently when I thought my back was finally going to give out, I think 50 lbs is enough? Don't You?

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:

  1. Choose a model with easy to understand instructions
  2. Buy a product that fits you & your baby well (make sure you can see your baby's face)
  3. 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.
 Below you will find slings that meet these requirements & are easy to use.
