Warning: Baby Slings Are Potentially Deadly

Parents of infants younger than 4 months need to take extra care to control the head and neck movements of their babies, especially when carrying them in baby slings. The Consumer Products Safety Commission (CSPC) has issued a warning urging parents to make sure they can see their infants face at all times to prevent suffocation when using sling-style carriers. 

PositiveTip: Parents and caregivers using baby slings must be vigilant to frequently check that the baby can breathe easily to avoid suffocation.
