Baby Sling Recall
OK, so I know we don’t currently have a huge following here, but if I can help one person…even a friend of a friend of a friend…
Infantino issued a SlingRider recall in March (I know, I know…but I only JUST found out!) due to 3 infant deaths.
“Slings can pose two different types of suffocation hazards to babies. In the first few months of life, babies cannot control their heads because of weak neck muscles. The sling’s fabric can press against an infant’s nose and mouth, blocking the baby’s breathing and rapidly suffocating a baby within a minute or two. Additionally, where a sling keeps the infant in a curled position bending the chin toward the chest, the airways can be restricted, limiting the oxygen supply. The baby will not be able to cry for help and can slowly suffocate.”
