Important Recall Notice

Health and Safety Canada along with The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has recalled ALL Infantino "SlingRider" and "Wendy Bellissimo" infant slings sold online and at national retailers. There have been three confirmed infant deaths due to suffocation!
Infantino is offering a free replacement package and a rattle. Right now I have 16 week old twins, I'm not sure I would even use their replacement sling, not much trust in this company at the moment.
You can check out the recall by clicking here, as well on how to receive your replacement package.

Right now Health Canada is developing safety standards for all slings sold in Canada, as they are concerned about suffocation in young babies. Personally, I've used slings for all three of my babies and never had any concerns, but it is something you may want to watch out for.

If you are looking for an alternative carrier, we highly recommend the Ergo. It's so comfy for parent and baby, has a newborn insert that you can buy for a younger baby and best of all, we sell them at Everything After The Stork!
