Baby Matters Nap Nanny Infant Recliner Recall

(Best Syndication News) - One infant has died because it became entrapped in the Baby Matters Nap Nanny recliners which has prompted the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) along with the company to issue a voluntary recall of around 30,000 of these portable baby recliners. The CPSC is investigating the death of the 4 month old baby girl that died while using the portable recliner in a crib. The infant was secured in the harness of the Nap Nanny and was found stuck on the side of the product and was in between the crib bumper and the Nap Nanny.

Baby Matters Nap Nanny recliners were sold nationwide at retail stores and online at napnanny.com between January 2009 through July 2010 at a cost of around $130.

According to the CPSC and Baby Matters there was another case of an infant that was entrapped while using the Nap Nanny in a crib. The manufacturer's instructions said not to put the recliner in the crib. This infant survived but had gotten a cut to the forehead. Altogether CPSC has received 22 reports of infants mostly under the age of 5 months old either hanging or falling out over the side of the recliner, even though the baby was strapped in with the harness.

The Nap Nanny should be used on the floor away from any other products, and never placed on a high surface like a counter top. You shouldn't place the Nap Nanny inside a confined area such as a playpen or a crib, because of the dangers of suffocation or entrapment.
