Hot Slings


I received in the mail as part of a product review Hot Slings. You may be asking what is Hot Slings? It is a stylish sling for carrying your baby. I got the black with white flowers called AP Reflection’s they have a variety of styles and colors to choose from. They also come in 2 sizes Regular and Large. Here is how you pick out the appropriate sling from their website www.hotslings.com
The pricing is $52.00 and up and they are well worth the price to be able to carry your baby with you freely and conveniently. There are some safety issues you will want to be aware of when you are wearing the HotSlings :


1. Make sure your baby can breathe. Baby carriers allow parents to be hands-free to do other things, but you must always remain active in caring for your child. No baby carrier can ensure that your baby always has an open airway; that's your job.
a. Never allow a baby to be carried, held, or placed in such a way that his chin is curled against his chest. This rule applies to babies being held in arms, in baby carriers, in infant car seats, or in any other kind of seat or situation. This position can restrict the baby's ability to breathe. Newborns lack the muscle control to open their airways. They need good back support in carriers so that they don't slump into the chin-to-chest position.
b. Never allow a baby's head and face to be covered with fabric. Covering a baby's head and face can cause her to "rebreathe" the same air, which is a dangerous situation. Also, covering her head and face keeps you from being able to check on her. Always make sure your baby has plenty of airflow. Check on her frequently.
c. As long as your babys chin is NOT touching their chest, baby is NOT snoring or making weasing noises, your baby is comfortable
Read and follow the instructions in this booklet and watch all video instructions online before use.
SUFFOCATION HAZARD: Be mindful of your baby's airways. Do not allow your baby's face to become completely covered by the sling. Make sure newborn's chin is not pressed to her chest.
Use common sense.
Safe for babies 8lbs - 35lbs.
Wear your sling high and tight. Wearing a sling too low can be dangerous.
Please examine your sling each time you put it on for wear and tear.
Do not take both hands off a squirming, uncooperative baby.
Tripping and balance hazard. Take care when moving about with baby in carrier.
Check all around the sling to be sure all the baby's appropriate parts are safely enclosed in the sling according to the instructions.
Do not leave a sleeping baby alone on a surface (crib/bed/fl oor) entangled in a sling. Also, the sling should be removed before the baby is buckled into a car seat.
Never jog, run, jump on a trampoline, or do any other activity that subjects your baby to similar shaking or bouncing motion. - "This motion can do damage to the baby's neck, spine and/or brain," explains the American Chiropractic Association.
Never use a baby carrier when riding in a car. Soft baby carriers provide none of the protection that car seats provide.
I love the look and feel of the fabric on my skin and so stylish! You can purchase these online at their website and what color and style do you like? Have you ever used a sling to carry your baby in? If not give it a try today and you will love it!
