Baby Sling Recall

Recently a popular mode of carrying infants is with a sling.  Over 1 million baby slings have been sold by Infantino and there had been 3 cases of infant deaths associated with them.  The government agency Consumer Product Safety Commission recommends that parents stop using the sling for infants under 4 months of age.  It is believed that the infants can be accidentally suffocated while in the baby sling.    The baby sling recalls involve the models “Slingrider” and “Wendy Bellisimo” .  The Infantino company is offering a replacement of the sling for a different type of carrier or toy product that they sell. Please contact Infantino for more information

An alternative carrier that does not have the risk of suffocation would be the forward or rear facing carriers such as  Kelty Carrier
