Infantino Recalls SlingRider Baby Slings; Three Infant Deaths Reported


Infantino Recalls to Replace SlingRider Baby Slings; Three Infant Deaths Reported


The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Health Canada (HC), in cooperation with Infantino LLC, of San Diego, Calif. are announcing a free replacement program for the Infantino “SlingRider” and “Wendy Bellissimo” infant slings. One million of these infant slings are being recalled in the United States and 15,000 are being recalled in Canada. CPSC advises consumers to immediately stop using these slings for infants younger than four months of age due to a risk of suffocation and contact Infantino for a free replacement product.
CPSC is aware of three reports of deaths that occurred in these slings in 2009; a 7-week-old infant in Philadelphia, Pa.; a 6-day-old infant in Salem, Ore.; and a 3-month-old infant in Cincinnati, Ohio.
The Infantino “SlingRider,” is a soft fabric baby carrier with a padded shoulder strap that is worn by parents and caregivers to carry an infant weighing up to 20 lbs. “Infantino” is printed on the plastic slider located on the strap. “Infantino,” “SlingRider” and the item number are printed on the instruction/warning label inside the baby sling carrier. “Wendy Bellissimo” branded sling carriers were sold exclusively at Babies “R” Us and have a sewn-in label on the inside of the sling strap that says in part "Wendy Bellissimo Media, Inc." and lists Item numbers 3937500H7 and 3937501H7.
Infantino LLC sold the slings in the United States and Canada from January 2003 through March 2010 at Walmart, Burlington Coat Factory, Target, Babies “R” Us, BJ’s Wholesale, various baby and children’s stores and other retailers nationwide, and on the Web at Amazon.com, for between $25 and $30.
The product was manufactured in China and Thailand.
Consumers should stop using the recalled slings immediately and contact Infantino to receive a free replacement product, with a choice of a Wrap & Tie infant carrier, or a 2 in 1 Shopping Cart Cover, or a 3 in 1 Grow & Play Activity Gym. A Jittery Pals Rattle will also be provided. Contact Infantino toll-free at (866) 860-1361 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. PT Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s Web site at www.infantino.com
Do not attempt to fix these carriers.
CPSC is still interested in receiving incident or injury reports that are either directly related to this product recall or involve a different hazard with the same product. Please tell us about it by visiting https://www.cpsc.gov/cgibin/incident.aspx
Note: Health Canada’s press release is available at http://cpsr-rspc.hc-sc.gc.ca/PR-RP/recall-retrait-eng.jsp?re_id=1001





Additional Message from CPSC:
On March 12, 2010, CPSC issued a warning about sling carriers for babies. 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 infant’s nose and mouth, blocking the baby’s breathing and rapidly suffocating a baby within a minute or two. Additionally, where a sling keeps the infant in a curled position bending the chin toward the chest, the airways can be restricted, limiting the oxygen supply. The baby will not be able to cry for help and can slowly suffocate.
CPSC has determined that a mandatory standard is needed for infant sling carriers. While a mandatory standard is being developed, CPSC staff is working with ASTM International and concerned companies such as Infantino to quickly develop an effective voluntary standard for slings. There currently are no safety standards for infant sling carriers.

Baby Shower Extravaganza Giveaway #24 Agoo Leg Huggers



Agoo® is uniquely styled athletic wear for urban kids. It is functional, fashionable and makes being a kid a lot more fun.The key  component is their fabrics. They contain a strong UV protected finish, blocking out any harmful ultra violet rays. They also have Wick Away fibers that pull moisture and sweat away from the body, and move it to the surface.  As an added bonus, they are stain resistant too!!! 

Agoo has adorable boy and girl lines but it was their Leg Huggers that caught my attention. 

 Look how cute they are on that little baby!  I received a pair of the Ed the Elephant Leg Huggers (pictured above) for Wiggle Bean.  Unfortunately they did not arrive in time for me to get her picture in them for this review.  Not only are they cute but they are also great for keeping legs cozy in cold weather.  Leg Huggers are designed for little ones on the move, they are perfect for protecting knees of new crawlers.  

I can not wait to get them on Wiggle and see how she likes them, I think they are adorable.  They are made from Bamboo fibers so they are super soft and perfect for sensitive skin

Baby Shower Extravaganza Giveaway #22: Zutano Childrens Clothing



When Wiggle Bean was born, she was to long for traditional "newborn" cloths but was swimming in the 0-3 months size so I had to bring her home in a newborn outfit that was to short for her (at least it was a short drive home).   

Itzy Bitzy is Zutano’s premier line of newborn and preemie clothing. The Zutano Itzy Bitzy line has been specially designed to fit brand new babies. The Itzy Bitzy line comes in two sizes: newborn size fits babies weighing 4-8 pounds while their size, 0-3 months size fits babies weighing 9-13 pounds (perfect for larger newborn babies).  Each piece of Itzy Bitzy clothing  is made of 100% cotton Interlock and is designed especially for a tiny infant.  

The new patterns for Spring are full of bright colors with sweet,delicate florals that sit side by side with outspoken graphics that include little dogs, tractors, colorful gardens, snails and toys.  The collection is organized according to a print family, with each print family containing a dominant print complemented by solids and stripes.  The line is available in various silhouettes including gowns, a long-sleeve wrap bodysuit, dresses and the popular kimono top as well as others. 

Wiggle Bean is too big for the Itzy Bitzy line now but Zutano also has a toddler line for children ages 2-4 (it is not available for online shopping yet).  She received the Puff Pocket Dress and reversible zip hoodie to try out.  They are a little big for her but she will grow into the dress by the time summer comes along.





Where to Buy
Zutano is now available at more than 1,500 gift and specialty boutiques and retailers worldwide as well as on the web at select e-tailers and the Zutano e-boutique.

Baby Shower Extravaganza Giveaway #21: Baby's 1st Phone Call (4 winners)



I would have loved to have this service when I had Wiggle Bean a little over a year ago.  I was not in the position to make calls after the delivery so I split up the list between my husband, mom and sister.  They each had about 10 people to call and repeat all the details over and over to.

Baby's First Phone Call is an automated call tree that allows you to notify all of your friends and family of the arrival of your bundle of joy without the hassle of making dozens of individual phone callsWith Baby's First Phone Call, you set up an account before your baby is born and enter the names and phone numbers of all the people you want to notify when the baby arrives. Then, after the baby is born, you make a single phone call and leave a personal voice-mail message of any length with all the details you want to share. Their system places calls to each of the phone numbers in your account and plays them your message.  You can even set the delivery time for family and friends that live in different time zones.

It is a genius idea, no more remembering a zillion phone numbers, no more forgetting to call your favorite uncle and no more repeating the details over  and over to each person.  Make on call and you (and you spouse) can get back to counting little toes and fingers! 


Package prices range from $20-$50 depending on the number of people on your call list.  All packages come with a luggage tag that includes the toll-free phone number to call and record your personal message when the baby arrives (you do not even have to remember that number!).  They also have a cute "I'm the One You Heard About" onesie for the new arrival.

WIN IT!!!
Four Over Thirty Mommy readers will win a $50 gift certificate to Baby's First Phone Call

Baby Shower Extravaganza: Joovy



The Joovy Room2 is the perfect fit for us, it is just what we needed.

Now that Wiggle Bean is walking and running around, she can not be left for a second.  It is amazing how fast she can be.  On minute she is standing next to you and the next, she is in the kitchen.  She could be in the living room playing with her toys and I have to run to the garage to grab a piece of wood for the fire and bam she is at the garage door.  With the Room2, I can pop her in there and she can play with her toys while I run out to the garage or mailbox and I do nto have to worry about what she will be in to or jumping off of by the time I get back.

I set the Joovy Room2 up as soon as I received it and Wiggle Bean kept trying to climb in to it.  I put her in there with a couple toys and she stayed in there just playing with her toys for over an hour.

 The Room2 is HUGE, in a good way.  Bean is 14months and just look how much space she has in the Room2.  She completely outgrew her regular pack-n-play but the Joovy Room2 will fit her for quite some time.  The Room2 has over 10 square feet of floor space, making it almost 50% bigger than a standard pack-n-play.  Just look how tiny she looks in there.  She has so much space to roam around and chace her Zhu Zhu pet


Thank you Joovy for making me a Joovy Trooper!

**Disclaimer: I was not paid in any form of cash for this posting.   I received the Room2 for my review purposes. This is solely the opinion of Over Thirty Mommy. Other people may have different experiences with the product.**

Baby Shower Extravaganza Giveaway #20: Dr. Brown's


Dr. Brown’s focus has always been to create innovative feeding products to promote good health and optimal nutrition for baby. Dr. Brown’s Natural Flow® baby bottle was the first baby bottle to feature an internal vent system that eliminated the vacuum, air bubbles and negative pressure associated with conventional bottle feeding. 

My husband and I were the last ones to have kids out of all of our siblings, we each have 3.  Both my brother and the oldest of my younger sisters swore by Dr. Brown's bottles.  They said they were the best.  Since we wanted the best for our daughter, we stocked our cupboard with about 90% Dr. Brown's bottles.  They worked great, we did not have any problems with air bubbles and she very rarely spit up (maybe 5 times ever).  

We were big Dr. Brown's fans in our house, we had almost everything.  I say had because we are transitioning Wiggle away from bottles and into their training cup, so I passed all of my Dr. Brown's treasures to my two sisters (one had a baby in December and the other is due in 4 weeks).

 I definitely recommend getting the Dr. Brown's bottle brush, it was a perfect fit for the bottles and worked great.  We also had the bottle sterilizer, it was an easy way to make sure the bottles were clean.  The steam heat effectively kills all household bacteria. You just put them in the sterilizer, add a little water and pop it in the microwave.


WIN IT!!!
One Over Thirty Mommy reader will win a Dr. Browns BPA Free Deluxe Gift Set.

Baby Shower Extravaganza Giveaway #17: My Precious Arrival



My Precious Arrival is a one stop shop for all your baby Shower favor and gift, unique baby gift, and diaper cake needs. 

My Precious Arrival was started by Eliana Owens after the birth of her first son in 2007.  It all began with a cute stork and set up in her front yard to share the wonderful news with friends, neighbors, and family. 

My Precious Arrival's Baby dessert gifts are adorable and can be used as shower decorations as well as favors.   I received one of the Waffle Cone Cups and it couldn't have been cuter.  The "ice cream" is made from a receiving blanket and wash cloth.  It comes displayed in a plastic waffle cone shaped cup with spoon that can be used again and again.  They come packaged in a set of 2 in both girl or boy colors.

Another one of my favorite dessert gifts are the Baby Bootie Mini Cupcakes.  The Bootie mini cupcakes come packaged as a set of four in a beautiful cupcake box with a delicate ribbon finish.  Each "cupcake" is made from a baby bootie and topped with a rose.


The personalized shower favors at My Precious Arrival are so cute and unique.  I wish I had found her site when I was ordering for the shower I am hosting this weekend!  You can select great personalized items like foaming hand wash, hand sanitizer, scented candles, candy jars and more all at really reasonable prices.


My Precious Arrival also makes adorable diaper cakes, decorative cookies,  and can design digital baby announcements.  




In addition to her great shower favors and unique dessert gifts, Eliana at My Precious Arrival also does nursery decor.  Her custom wooden letters and painted frames are the perfect addition to any nursery.  I love the beach name, it would have been a perfect fit for Wiggle Bean's tropical themed nursery.  You Choose from one of our designs or make your own unique design with any color or pattern combination.




I might be most jealous of those that live in Austin, Round Rock, Georgetown, Pflugerville (Texas) because My Precious Arrival can do custom painted Mural Designs for you.  I wanted so bad to have a tropical mural done on the wall in Wiggle's room but could not find a suitable painter that could do what I was looking for at at reasonable cost.  Look how amazing they are!!!

WIN IT!!!

Baby Shower Eztravaganza Giveaway #16: CloudB Twilight Sea Turtle CLOSED


CSN has over 200 shops to meet all of your online shopping needs.

Toys and Games Online is part of the CSN family of online shops.  If you are looking for toys, games, bikes and so much more, this is the website for yo.  The store is super easy to navigate, you can search by gender, age, brand, and type of toy.

A little while ago, I wrote about possibley changing the theme of Wiggles nursery after searching the kids bedding section of All Childrens Furniture (another CSN shop!) and finding the Pam Grace Creations Ladybug Lucy Bedding Set.

Wiggle LOVES anything Ladybug.  While browsing around Toys and Games Online, I found the CloudB Twilight Ladybug and knew Wiggle had to have it.

It is adorable and projects constellations on her walls and ceiling in three different colors. It runs on batteries  and has a 45 minute sleep timer so it will not go through batteries and I do not have to sneak into her room later to turn it off.  Since it runs on batteries, there are no cords for her to get tangled up with and she can (and does) drag it all over the house making it shine on anything she can.

WIN IT!!!
CSN has Generously offered one Over Thirty Mommy a CloudB Twilight Sea Turtle (pictured to the left) of their own.
