Infant Sling Carriers


The Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) has recalled over one million infant sling carriers manufactured by Infantino after being linked to three infant deaths. The CPSC is urging parents to immediately stop using them with children younger than four months of age.

The fabric from the sling can pose a suffocation hazard to babies in their first. It can press against a baby's mouth and nose and block the air passage, making the baby unable to breathe.

The CPSC has reported that most babies who have died in a sling had a low birth weight, were born prematurely, or had a health issue affecting their breathing, such as a cold. Therefore, parents of preemies, babies of low birth weight, or babies in fragile health should exercise extra care when using an infant sling.

For more information on infant carrier slings, visit the CPSC's website.
