Baby Sling Spokesperson On Recall: They’re Using It Incorrectly

E-mail Print PDF

baby slingEarlier today, an announcement was made regarding the recall of over one million “baby slings” for the Infantino “Sling Rider” and the Wendy Bellissimo “Infant Sling.”  During the last year, several complaints have been lodged with the CPSC about the slings and their apparent restriction of air passage in infants under the age of four months.  Initially, both manufacturers balked at the recall request because “the slings aren’t for carrying.”

William Santee, a spokesperson for the sling manufacturers, said that “the recall was completely unnecessary as the product is working perfectly well – when used correctly.  The product is not a carrying device, it’s a slinging device.  It says so right in the product name.  These baby slings were designed to get your baby from point A to point B in the least amount of time possible.  There are moments when you don’t have time to carry your child from one place to another, and this is when the sling comes in very handy.”

Santee went on to cite the recent case of a Dallas woman who slung her baby into her vehicle to stop it from being repossessed.  “See,” continued Santee, “that woman was using the sling correctly.  Her car was being repossessed and she needed to do something quickly.  Luckily, she had her child in a “Sling Rider,” and was able to deftly sling the infant through the passenger side window and halt the repo for those precious few seconds before they took her car.  Sure, she was arrested for child endangerment and ended up not only losing her car but also her child.  I can’t say I recommend slinging your baby in front of law enforcement personnel.  She needed to use better judgment there.  My point is, it’s a sling, not a carrier.  More catapult than hammock.”
