Fisher-Price Is Warning Parents After 10 Babies Died In The Rock ‘N Play Sleeper

Infants who can roll over by themselves should not be put in a Rock ‘n Play sleeper.

Fisher-Price and federal regulators are warning parents about the Rock ‘n Play Sleeper after 10 infants died while using the popular product.

The babies managed to roll onto their stomachs or sides while unrestrained in the sleeper before they died, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) said Friday. The deaths date back to 2015, with the most recent taking place last month, CNN reported.

The sleeper so far hasn’t been recalled, and Fisher-Price noted that its product meets international safety standards.

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.

The company also said that its instructions warn parents to not use the sleeper with babies who can sit or pull themselves up independently. Each of the infants who died were 3 months or older, the CPSC said.

“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 sleeper is advertised for babies’ naps, playtime, or overnight sleep. Parents can rock babies in it, or it also vibrates on its own. The popular product has thousands of online reviews, and Amazon lists it as a best-seller.

On Friday, Fisher-Price reminded parents to always use the restraint in the sleeper and place babies on their backs, and to never add extra padding.

“Fisher-Price takes the responsibility of being part of your family seriously, and we are committed to earning that trust every day,” the company said.
