Sling recalls

I would like to address the recent recalls and news stories regarding Bag style slings. These particular carriers have been linked to several cases of infant suffucation. Here are a few links regarding initial concerns about these slings, ending in the recall of over 1m products! While it's a great victory for babywearing safety, it's important to note that we must use caution with every carrier we choose to use. Learning to use your carrier properly will ensure the best possible positioning and lessening the chances of accident. Visit your local Baby Wearing support group if you have concerns.
