Portable Baby Recliners Recalled

recall notice new Portable Baby Recliners RecalledPortable baby recliners that are supposed to help fussy babies sleep better are being recalled after the death of an infant.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recall Monday of 30,000 Nap Nanny recliners made by Baby Matters LLC of Berwyn, Pa.

The CPSC says it’s investigating a report that a 4-month-old girl from Royal Oak died in a Nap Nanny that was being used in a crib. The child was reportedly found hanging over the side of the foam recliner, caught between the Nap Nanny and the crib’s bumper.

The agency says it is aware of 22 reports of infants, mostly under 5 months, falling over the side of the Nap Nanny despite most of the babies being strapped into the harness on the recliner. The Nap Nanny is not meant to be used in a crib and instead should be placed on the floor away from other products, CPSC said.

The Nap Nanny was designed to mimic the curves of a car seat – elevating a baby slightly to help reduce reflux, gas, stuffiness or other problems.

The recliners were sold at toy and children’s retail stores nationwide and online from January 2009 through this month. They cost about $130.

Consumers should contact the company to receive new product instructions and warnings and in certain cases, a coupon toward the purchase of a new Nap Nanny.
