TEN babies have died in a Fisher-Price sleeper, officials warn parents to stop using the rocking crib

TEN babies have died in a Fisher-Price sleeper, officials warn parents to stop using the rocking crib

“Fisher-Price warns consumers to stop using the product when infants can roll over, but the reported deaths show that some consumers are still using the product when infants are capable of rolling and without using the three point harness restraint,” the warning states.

The issue, the company said, is that the sleeper is only meant for infants 3 months and younger. Once infants reach 3 months of age, they tend to be able to roll over on their own.

At least 10 babies have died in Fisher-Price’s ‘Rock ‘n Play’ sleeper since 2015, a warning from the company and the US Product Safety Commission (USPSC) revealed on Friday. The USPSC did not reveal the exact causes of the babies’ deaths, but said they died after rolling from their stomachs to the backs or sides unrestrained in the sleeper.

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. 

Both the USPSC and Fisher-Price are warning parents to stop using the rocking crib without restraints after their children are over three months old. Safe sleeping is always a top-priority concern for new parents. 

Some studies have suggested that babies that sleep on their backs have a lower chance of dying of sudden infant death syndrome. baby sleeping on their stomach can much more easily choke if they regurgitate milk, the USCPSC warns.

More importantly, if they are sleeping somewhere high and without some kind of barrier around them, babies that roll over can fall. Elevated rockers and bassinets come with warnings that babies should be always strapped in to the seat. But despite instructions and prior warnings, 10 babies have fallen to their deaths since 2015. 

The USCPSC and Fisher-Price are now begging parents to stop using the Rock ‘n Play Sleeper as soon as their children are able to roll over when they are awake – as they are then able to do so in their sleep too – or after they are three months old. 

Fisher-Price said in a statement that their product meets safety standards.But the risk that it will be used improperly is too high, and the cost too great.  ‘A child fatality is an unimaginable tragedy,’ the company said in a statement. 

‘We are there with you from the moment you bring your child home and take our responsibility for product safety very seriously.’

    Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a
    sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She
    never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
