Health Tip: Keep Baby Safe in a Carrier

(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.
