Reports of infant death associated with Rock ‘N Play units has prompted the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Fisher-Price to issue an alert notifying parents.
According to a CPSC news release, 10 infant deaths have been reported since 2015 after infants “rolled from their back to their stomach or side, while unrestrained” while in a Rock 'N Play.
The infants were all over the age of three months.
CPSC and Fisher-Price urge parents to stop using Rock ‘N Play when their child reaches 3 months old or “as soon as an infant exhibits rollover capabilities.”
CPSC and Fisher-Price remind consumers to create a safe sleep environment for infants, whether using a crib, bassinet, play yard, or inclined sleeper: Never add blankets, pillows, stuffed toys, or other items to the environment and always place infants to sleep on their backs.
