Make sure you understand how to properly use your sling before placing a child in it.
Always examine your sling for signs of wear before using. If you see a tear or other problem that could put your child in a dangerous situation, do not use your sling.
If your child is too heavy or unable to be carried in your arms, then they can not be carried in your sling!
Stay in tune with your baby. Keep an eye on their breathing pattern & air flow. If you hear your child having a hard time breathing, take your child out & then reposition them in the sling so that they are breathing properly. This is a must to remember at all ages but especially when wearing newborns!
When using your sling with a newborn or small child, you must have the head supported at all times & keep the neck as straight as possible.
Check to make sure your child is secure at all times. The fabric should not be loose, but should be tightened snuggly.
Use common sense while babywearing & do not participate in any activity that could endanger your child while in the sling. Such activities would include but are not limited to: bike riding, operating heavy machinery, roller skating, etc.
The sling is NOT a car seat or safety buckle for traveling in a vehicle & can not be used as such.
NEVER cover your child's face. They need to breathe!
Keep away from high heat & open flames. Your sling is not fire-retardant!
Be careful when walking thru doorways or around corners. Remember your child's body is a part of yours when babywearing so make sure you do not bump their heads or anything else.
Remember that your child can reach far when babywearing so keep all sharp, pointed, or hot objects out of reach at all times.
