Soft infant and toddler carriers covered by this policy
A soft infant and toddler carrier is a product constructed of sewn fabric. It is designed to hold a child (typically a full-term infant to a toddler) in an upright position, in close proximity to the caregiver. It is normally worn on one or both shoulders of the caregiver, with a child positioned in the carrier. Products generally referred to as “slings” are not included in the definition of soft infant and toddler carrier, and are outside the scope of this policy.
