Injury Prevention

Baby Carriers

While a baby carrier can be a big help to parents, it also can cause serious injuries if the child accidentally falls out or is knocked down from a high place. Here are a few tips to help avoid injury.

  • Always secure a child in a baby carrier with the safety strap.
  • Never leave a child alone while in a baby carrier. Take her with you if you must leave the room.
  • Avoid placing a baby carrier on or close to the edge of a table or other high surfaces.
  • Watch your baby carefully when other children or animals are present.
  • Never use a baby carrier as a car seat.
