Government moves to stop sales of infant recliner models after 5 deaths
December 6, 2012


Washington (CNN) -- The deaths of five infants and more than 70 reports of children nearly falling out of a popular infant recliner have the federal government looking to stop the sales and manufacture of the product.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced Wednesday it filed an administrative complaint against Baby Matters, LLC, after discussions with the company and its representatives seeking a voluntary recall plan broke down.
The recliners, manufactured by Baby Matters, LLC, based in Berwyn, Pennsylvania, include the Nap Nanny and Nap Nanny Chill infant models. The CPSC alleges parents who continue to use the products are putting their infants at significant risk of injury and death.

Nap Nanny Recall: Four Retailers To Recall 150,000-Plus Baby Recliners (PHOTO)
December 27, 2012

WASHINGTON — Four national retailers agreed to recall more than 150,000 Nap Nanny baby recliners after at least five infant deaths and dozens of reports of children nearly falling out of the recliners, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday.

The recall covers Nap Nanny Generations One and Two, and the Chill model infant recliners. All were sold between 2009 and 2012. The Nap Nanny was designed to mimic the curves of a baby car seat, elevating an infant slightly to help reduce reflux, gas, stuffiness or other problems.

The CPSC warned parents and caregivers that the Nap Nanny contains defects in its design, warnings and instructions. The agency said the product poses a substantial risk of injury and death to infants.

The four retailers – Amazon.com, Buy Buy Baby, Diapers.com and Toys R Us/Babies R Us – agreed to voluntarily participate in the recall of the Nap Nanny because its manufacturer is unable or unwilling to participate, the government agency said in a statement.

6th baby dies in 'Nap Nanny' recliner; officials urge owners to stop using product
June 3, 2014


NEW YORK — The Consumer Product Safety Commission reported last week that a sixth infant has died while using a product called the Nap Nanny.
“Our Safe to Sleep experts urge all parents and caregivers who own a Nap Nanny or Nap Nanny Chill recliner to stop using it immediately.  We do not want any other family to suffer the loss of their child or experience serious injury to their child,” a blog post on CPSC.gov said.
According to CPSC’s website, Since 2010, safety problems with the Nap Nanny have been explained in recalls, a safety blog, and a legal settlement against the now out-of-business firm. CPSC is again warning parents to stop using these infant recliners because deaths occurred in two ways:
The baby partly falls or hangs over the side of a Nap Nanny and gets trapped between the product and crib bumpers;
The baby suffocates on the inside of the Nap Nanny.
The latest death occurred in Hopatcong, N.J. where an 8-month-old girl secured by a belt was found partly hanging over the side of a Nap Nanny recliner, trapped between the product and a crib bumper.
