Transcript - Nap Nanny - A Danger to Infants
Nap Nanny infant recliners have been linked to at least 6 infant deaths since the products’ introduction in 2009. Nap Nanny is a portable infant recliner designed for sleeping, resting and playing. The recliner includes a bucket seat shaped foam base and a fitted fabric cover with a three-point harness to hold the baby securely in place.
Though a popular sleep aid with parents, the Consumer Product Safety Commission received at least 92 incident reports involving the Nap Nanny Generation Two Recliners and Nap Nanny Chill products. These reports included startling claims of infants hanging or falling over the side of the products. The Commission alleged that the Nap Nanny contains a design defect, that its use presents a risk of injury to infants, and that the instructions and warnings are inadequate.
Nap Nanny was first recalled in 2010 after regulators found that its harness could trap babies in an unsafe position causing them to suffocate. By 2013, it was illegal to sell the Nap Nanny in the United States. Safety experts worry that these products can still be found at yard sales, online auction sites, or given as hand-me-down gifts. The Consumer Product Safety Commission has one message for parents about the Nap Nanny: Stop using it! It’s an entrapment and suffocation risk to babies. Consumers are urged to dispose of the products to ensure they are never used again.
