One of my favorite companies, Hotslings, was one of the most well-known makers of Infant Carriers for over 7 years. Recently, they made a sad announcement, stating that they would be closing their business due to various factors including the recession, a bad supplier that caused a 9 months delay in receiving their products – costing them over half a million dollars in sales, and of course, the recent CPSC warnings. Although the CPSC recalled a completely different baby sling brand, it caused quite a bit of damage in the baby carrier world.
Danielle Friedland, entrepreneur, mom of two and the founder of Celebrity Baby Blog, put together a beautiful tribute to this company that was loved by so many. You can follow Danielle on her website daniellefriedland.com or through twitter @that_danielle.

The new album Do Fun Stuff Volume 1, is their very first release of kids music. In partnership with PRISMS, The Panic Room will be raising awareness about SMS and benefiting the foundation through sales of this new CD.
