I know this is in babywearing, I think it should be posted here as well.

WASHINGTON — The government is preparing a safety warning about baby slings – those popular and fashionable infant carriers that parents strap around their chests to give the little ones a cuddle on the move.

The concern: Infants can suffocate, and at least a few have.

Glad that the ones that are dangerous might be less popular. Sorry that I think this is going to be translated in the minds of the public as "babywearing is not safe."

Oh yeah, more ammunition against BWing . Those "slings" that are dangerous SHOULD be taken off of the market!

Strollers, cribs, and playpens have all caused deaths. Yet those aren't being debated and I'm sure never will be.
