Sling Carriers

If you list products on our store, you must comply with all federal, state, and local laws and our policies applicable to those products and product listings, including this policy.

Sling Carriers covered by this policy

A Sling Carrier is designed to hold up to two children in an upright or reclined position while being supported by the caregiver’s torso. It is designed for use with infants (full-term at birth) up to a child weighing thirty-five pounds, unless the manufacturer indicates that a higher weight limit is allowed. Slings are constructed of fabric and consist of a variety of unstructured designs ranging from a hammock-shaped product to a length of material wrapped around the caregiver’s body.
