When researching the past 20 years of sling use, CPSC identified at least 14 babies who died since 1998 inside their sling-style infant carriers. Twelve of the deaths involved babies younger than four months of age. Be cautious when carrying babies younger than 4 months of age in a sling and make sure that your infant's face is visible at all times when using these products.
