Babywearing tips from CPSC

Last year, baby slings and wraps were the center of controversy after the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued recalls for millions of the sling-styled carriers. As part of the product recall, parents were warned that improper use of these soft baby carriers could result in suffocation. The CPSC, with the mission of protecting the public from unreasonable risks of injury or death from thousands of types of consumer products, has monitored these parenting products for the past 20 years and identified serious risk associated with their use. Consistent with its mission, the federal agency has issued guidelines to help parents make smart and safe choices about baby slings and wraps.
