Is sling harmful to a child: truth and fiction?

More and more often in large cities you can see young mothers not with the usual wheelchairs, but with slings of different colors and patterns. It is not surprising that using a patch holder causes a lot of controversy and speculation. Who is right: defenders talking about the merits of slings, or opponents, vigorously proving the danger of such a device? In our article we will present the objective arguments for and against, and you yourself can decide whether to carry your baby in such a cradle or not.

It would seem that in the spelling you can see only the benefit: with a convenient transportation in the transport and do homework, you can feed the crumb almost anywhere. And this is not all the advantages of the sling. However, even here one can find a fly in the ointment: a violation of the child’s posture, lack of visual contact with his mother, etc. A particularly heated debate in the press and parenting forums unfolded after the US Consumer Committee reported deaths as a result of the use of holders.

Indeed, in recent years, there have been several cases in which children suffocated in these shifts. (On May 7, 2009, Derrick Foweler gasped in a carry-over bag of Infantino, Derrick was 6 days old.The parents of the baby sued 4 million dolars from Infantino LLC.This is not the first such death, for 14 years in carrying bags 14 children died from suffocation. The US Consumer Goods Commission issued a warning about the danger of carrying bags.) Infants have poorly developed neck muscles, and they are not yet able to control the position of the head. Therefore, babies can lean their noses and mouth against dense tissue and die for lack of oxygen in just a few minutes. Another danger lies in congenital reflexes: a kid in a confined space often turns into the embryo position, pressing his knees to his chest. In this situation, he can neither breathe normally nor cry, calling Mom to help.

The culprits of such accidents were slings-bags, against which domestic and foreign pediatricians are acting. For small children fit slings with rings or slings-scarves. In these models the position of crumbs is natural, like that of the mother on the handles, and for their production breathing tissues are used. In such shifts the baby simply can not suffocate. In May-sling (a hybrid of a scarf and a backpack), the baby is at all vertically, therefore, nothing can stop its breathing.

Second thesis: sling is harmful to the musculoskeletal system of the child

A similar danger can occur if the transfer device is not used correctly. Some unconscious mothers wear children with their legs clamped together, which are sideways. Another incorrect position – the baby legs are strongly bent in the knees.

Although you can use sling from birth, it is only necessary to carry a small child in the age appropriate to his age. For example, up to four months of children should be kept in a horizontal position. In some models it is possible to carry and vertically, not being afraid to do much harm to the locomotor apparatus. Spread the legs of the baby in different directions and fix them. The wound fabric tightly presses the baby to you and relieves the load from the spine. It turns out that this posture will help prevent dysplasia of the hip joints.
