Beachfront Baby® Slings contain no neoprene or buckles- just a simple piece of cloth with 2 rings sewn onto one end. The opposite ends of the sling fit through the rings, much like a belt buckle, creating a pocket that holds baby close to the wearer’s body. A photo instruction booklet with babywearing safety information and tips is included with each sling. A sling-style carrier places baby in the optimal position- high on the wearer’s chest and close enough to kiss. This is extremely important in any water environment.
Only SlingRings™ brand aluminum rings are used in the production of the Beachfront Baby® Sling. These rings are made of anodized aluminum which increases their resistance to corrosion & have been tested and approved by the manufacturer for use in chlorinated water. We recommend rinsing the sling & rings with tap water after wearing in salt water or chlorinated water. Using the smallest size of rings ensures a safe fit with no fabric slippage. Larger rings are not recommended by SlingRings for lightweight fabric as the fabric can slip through the rings and possibly cause your baby to fall. Each individual ring is pull tested to 250 pounds, is RoHS compliant, lab-verified heavy metal and toxin free & they are smooth & safe for babies to chew on. The rings are sewn into the shoulder each sling using high quality polyester thread. 3 separate seams are sewn with backstitching on the end of each of the 3 seams. This means that in the unlikely event that one seam were to come undone, it would not affect the performance of the other 2 seams and your baby would remain safely in their sling.
Beachfront Baby fabric complies with European standard EN 71-3:2013- Migration of certain elements- Category III: scraped off as Verified by UL- ICQ Laboratory in Cabiate CO, Italy. In simple terms, this means the fabric and dye processes are safe and non-toxic for you & your baby. Babies often chew on carriers and we want to assure you that the fabric is perfectly safe for your precious little ones! Each of the carriers include a safety & warning label with pictograms demonstrating safe versus unsafe positioning so there is always a visual reminder to the wearer of the carrier to keep baby safe.
This 100% polyester does NOT include sun protection factor. Please use care & common sense when taking your baby out in the sun or water. Don’t do anything with your baby in the sling that you wouldn’t do with him/her in your arms. By purchasing a Beachfront Baby® Water Sling Carrier, you agree to release Beachfront Baby, LLC & it’s members, employees and/or retailers from any & all liability for any injury which might result from the use of our sling. The wearer is responsible for using the sling safely & correctly.
