Parents: Use Extra Caution with Infant Carrier Slings
March 15, 2010
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.
