Regarding recent warnings from CPSC
Sling warning 2010
This week there have been many announcements in media regarding the safety of sling carriers for babies. All reporting that the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) in USA issues a warning that baby slings – more specifically soft bag style slings which wrap around the parent’s neck and cradle the child in a curved “C-like” position – may cause infant suffocation. The CPSC has no such issue with the safety of BabyBjörn Baby Carriers.
All BabyBjörn Baby Carriers position infants so that their head and neck are supported and upright to reduce the risk of airway obstruction. In addition, BabyBjörn recommends that babies should face in as infants, as when an infant is facing the wearer’s chest the parent can feel their breath, know where the infant’s head is positioned and change the infant’s head position easily to ensure the baby’s airway is open.
All BabyBjörn baby carriers have been developed in close cooperation with medical experts to give parents peace of mind knowing that they are choosing the best for their baby. Doctors at University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital, widely recognized as one of America’s top children’s hospitals, have tested and recommend BabyBjörn Baby Carriers, as they hold baby in a healthy position that supports infant’s head, neck, spine and hips.
