Customer Practices Commentary

Please see "Resolutions to Other IP Violations".

To our knoweldge, concerns were raised as early as 2007 regarding the safety of their SlingRider baby sling. No recall was issued until 2010 - after 3 infants died from asphyxiation.

Resolutions to Other IP Violations

This large company was making carriers that were not ergonomic. To our knowledge, someone employed there purchased a carrier from work at home company Catbird Baby. In our opinion, the design of the Infantino Sash Mei Tai is derived from that carrier with additions that allow for the straps to go through and stay in place, a hood and a more squared panel.
