Safe use and regularly checking on baby
Take your baby out of the sling or carrier straightaway if you observe any of the following:
- Their face is covered, chin tucked in or they are curled in a 'C' position
- They are grunting, wheezing, or taking laboured, rapid or whistling breaths
- There is a grey or blue tinge to their skin
- They are fussy, restless or squirming
Your baby may be in difficulty without making any noise or movement so it is important to regularly check your baby when they are in a sling or carrier.
