Slings are great fun and have many benefits when used correctly. Please adhere to the following
advice at all times and seek guidance if you have any questions before using a sling.
Use common sense when using a sling: your baby’s safety is your responsibility.
Avoid strenuous activities when wearing your baby.
Be aware of any objects your child can reach, particularly anything hot or sharp.
When using a wrap, always tie securely with a double knot.
Check your sling for any signs of wear and tear before each use. Stop using immediately if you notice any damage.
Ensure that your baby has a good air supply: that there is no fabric over his/her face or mouth, and their chin is not resting directly
on their chest – there should be at least one finger width in between chin and chest.
Be aware of your baby’s body heat when using a sling. The sling provides extra layers of fabric and therefore warmth for you both;
you are also sharing each other’s body heat. You will probably need a layer or two less clothing than normal, but make sure your child
has something warm for their legs and feet if necessary.
Do not use in place of a car seat.
Exercise caution when near open flames.
Do not operate machinery, drive a vehicle or ride a bike when using a sling.
Ensure your baby’s head is well supported.
Do not leave a sling around your child unsupervised.
