Our belief is that, when properly positioned, a baby in a sling is as safe as a baby in arms. We share the CPSC's concern about the safety of bag-style slings and fully support their decision to recall the Infantino SlingRider. At TBW, we strongly encourage parents and caregivers to be informed about sling safety.
