Dangerous Baby Products: Infant Inclined Sleepers
Rock ‘n Play Sleeper Recalled
Numerous lawsuits have been filed against Fisher-Price in response to more than 32 infant deaths involving the company’s Rock n’ Play Sleeper.
In April 2019, Fisher-Price recalled more than 4 million Rock n’ Play Sleepers due to a design flaw that allegedly causes infants to suffocate. According to Consumer Reports, babies who roll over in the Sleeper may be put in a position that cuts off their airway, resulting in asphyxia.
Pediatricians advise parents only to let their babies sleep flat on their back without bedding to prevent asphyxia. The lawsuits against Fisher-Price allege that the design of the Rock n’ Play Sleeper violates this well-known rule.
Other Recalled Inclined Sleepers
The following products have been recalled by the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC):
- Kolcraft Cuddle N Care
- Fisher Price Rock N Play
- Graco Little Lounger Rocking Seat
- Evenflo Pillo Portable Napper
- SwaddleMe By Your Bed
These are just a handful of the dangerous products recalled by the CPSC. Parents with infants should pay close attention to the agency’s website for news and additional updates. With more than 73 deaths associated with such products, it’s no wonder so many experts encourage families to stop using inclined sleepers altogether.
