    Many parents and caregivers carry children in slings, wraps and soft carriers. The Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association recently released a set of tips for safely carrying a baby in these devices:

    • Make sure the baby's entire face is visible at all times and not pressed against the wearer.
    • Keep the baby close enough that the wearer can kiss the top of the baby's head.
    • Do not cover the baby's head with any fabric.
    • Be sure the baby is not hunched with his or her chin touching the chest.
