Just recently another death has occurred with babies using the Nap Nanny recliner. The latest 6th death happened this week to an 8-month infant in New Jersey. While the seat was placed in the crib with the infant strapped with a belt. The infant rolled over the edge of the seat and hung himself between the seat and the crib. There have been 92 incidents of babies falling out of the seat or hanging themselves by the seat.
The seats were first purchased in 2009 to 2012. After the first 5 deaths, the company refused to recall the seat. Since then the company is no longer in business. You can return the seat to any store for a refund. Since the seat is recalled is prohibited to resell the seat.
According a statement from CPSC “Our Safe to Sleep experts urge all parents and caregivers who own a Nap Nanny or Nap Nanny Chill recliner to stop using it immediately,” “We do not want any other family to suffer the loss of their child or experience serious injury to their child.”
The 2 ways infants can die from the Nap Nanny is rolling over the side and suffocating in-between the crib bumper and the seat, or rolling over to the side of the seat and suffocating that way.
The CPSC urges parents not to use the seat anymore, and either return to the store for a refund, or dispose of the seat. You can also contact where you purchased the seat to see what can be done.
If you own the Nap Nanny be sure of the remove the seat from your home, to protect your infant.
