What are the defects?

What are the hazards?
Slings can pose two different types of suffocation hazards to babies. In the first few months of life, babies cannot control their heads because of weak neck muscles. The sling's fabric can press against an infants nose and mouth, blocking the babies breathing. Additionally, where a sling keeps the infant in a curled position bending the chin towards the chest restricting oxygen supply.
