CPSC warns against Rock 'n Plays for babies over 3 months

CPSC warns against Rock 'n Plays for babies over 3 months

A national warning has just been sent out by the US Consumer Safety Commission after at least 10 deaths have been reported from using Fisher-Price's Rock 'n Play infant sleeper device. They recommend that parents stop using it once their infants reach that age, or sooner if they "exhibit rollover capabilities". The most recent death was reported last month.

Since the release of the Consumer Reports investigation, the AAP has also called on the Consumer Product Safety Commission to recall the Fisher-Price Rock 'n Play Sleeper, as seen in the tweet below.

A previous warning from Fisher-Price said that babies over three months old that were not buckled into the sleeper had rolled over and fallen out of it to their deaths.

The company's general manager, Chuck Scothon said that a "child fatality is an unimaginable tragedy".

However parents have been asked to "never add blankets, pillows, stuffed toys, or other items to the environment". In a blog post from 2016 on storyoffive.com, a mother called the sleeper the best baby product she had ever bought.

"The guidelines went over several important ways that parents can ensure that their children were sleeping safely", Benaroch tells Garcia.

They were also encouraged to put their children to sleep on their backs. "The Rock 'n Play is neither firm nor flat".

We call on the @USCPSC to issue an immediate recall for the @FisherPrice Rock 'n Play Sleeper, which has been tied to 32 infant deaths. One might think that it's a good, safe place for a baby to sleep. The children who died in the sleeper were older than 3 months and, while unrestrained, managed to roll on their stomachs or sides before they died, BuzzFeed News reports.

The Rock 'n Play Sleeper is a seat that includes vibrations and an incline to help babies sleep.

Doctors advise parents to position babies on their backs in cribs, bassinets or other infant beds.

Despite these numbers, the product has not been recalled by Fisher-Price, part of the children's products giant Mattel, which had about $4.5 billion in sales in 2018. We are always concerned by reports such as those we are seeing from the U.S., ' the ACCC spokesperson told The Age.
