More infant sleepers recalled

Feb. 16, 2020—The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is recalling multiple models of inclined infant sleepers to prevent the risk of suffocation. The recalls follow a warning the CPSC issued last fall urging parents to stop using these types of products.

Inclined sleepers have been linked to more than 70 infant deaths. Babies are able to roll over in the sleepers and onto their sides or stomachs. Those sleep positions can lead to suffocation.

Babies should always sleep on their backs on a firm, flat surface with no loose bedding or bumpers, according to the CPSC and the American Academy of Pediatrics.

This recall affects more than 165,000 inclined sleepers.

The sleepers being recalled include:

If you have one of these sleepers, you should stop using it right away. You can contact the manufacturer for a refund using the information posted at the above links.

The CPSC previously recalled the Fisher-Price Rock ‘n Play Sleeper in April 2019. It had been linked to 32 infant deaths. And all Kids II Rocking Sleepers were recalled later the same month.

If you're not sure whether your baby product has been recalled, you can find out at the CPSC's website.
