Make sure it's used properly and fits well
By Diana Kohnle
(HealthDay News) -- Baby carriers can help busy parents stay hands-free for a while, but it's important to use them properly.
The American Academy of Pediatrics offers these safety tips for baby carriers:
- Check the weight limit to be sure the specific carrier is appropriate for your baby.
- Make sure the carrier provides good support for baby's neck and head, and avoid those that curl baby up.
- Weigh the features and comfort against price, and consider how much you are willing to pay.
- If baby falls asleep in the carrier, make sure the head and neck are straight, and the face isn't covered.
