Baby Carriers and Swings

Baby Carriers and swings continue to grow among popularity with parents and child care givers. These items help entertain the baby.

Safety Tips for Baby Carriers

Here are a few guidelines to follow when using carriers and swings.

If you want to use a soft carrier, select one that is made of a durable, washable fabric with sturdy, adjustable straps.

Your baby should fit snugly in the carrier with the head supported and weight evenly distributed.

A carrier should only be used when you are walking with the baby. It should not be used for transporting baby in a car or on a bicycle.

Check the carrier periodically for sharp edges, ripped seams and missing or loose snaps.

Select a portable swing for baby that has strong posts, legs and has a wide stance to prevent tipping.

Never leave baby in a swing unattended.
