Framed Baby Carriers: The framed carriers are intended for children who can sit unaided (approximately six months of age) and are designed to be attached to a carer’s torso allowing a hands-free operation: when standing and/or walking.
Soft Baby Carriers: The soft carriers are designed to allow the carer a hands-free operation when standing and/or walking. These soft carriers are for use up to a maximum weight of 15 kg. If the soft carrier has functions not covered in this European Standard, reference should be made to the relevant European Standard.
Baby Walkers: The baby walking frames into which a child is placed, and intended to be used from when the child is able to sit up by itself until the child is able to walk by itself.
Slings: The slings are designed to carry a child solely on the carer’s torso, which does not have integrated openings for the child’s limbs and is designed to allow the carer a hands-free operation when standing and/or walking.
