Biz: Apparently, carrying babies in a wraparound sling may not be safe

  • Would you put your baby in one of these things? Apparently, a company that sells baby slings is learning the hard way that it’s hard to make a backpack-styled device safe for carrying an infant. Three babies died due to breathing problems caused by the slings. Then the Consumer Product Safety Commission told the public that the slings aren’t safe. Now, sling maker Infantino just took two of their models (including the one on the right) off the market entirely, and told people to stop using them immediately. Oh, baby. source
