We had previously recommended the Infantino SlingRider for its easy access and comfort. However, this sling, perhaps more than some others has a potential to suffocate underweight or premature babies, or those with breathing difficulties such as a cold. The recall also includes the Infantino “Wendy Bellisimo” sling.

WASHINGTON – More than 1 million baby slings made by Infantino were recalled Wednesday after claims linking them to three infant deaths.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission said babies could suffocate in the soft fabric slings. The agency urged parents to immediately stop using the slings for babies under 4 months.
The recall involves 1 million Infantino “SlingRider” and “Wendy Bellissimo” slings in the United States and 15,000 in Canada.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission also warned that all slings can be dangerous if used improperly. Make sure that babies mouth and face are clear of fabric and plainly in view when using. Small babies, especially, can not twist themselves into a breathing position and may become stuck without being able to breathe.
