Baby sleep positioners, a popular product for safety-conscious parents, were suppose to save lives by keeping infants from rolling onto their stomachs.
Instead, these products are now being added to the growing list of dangerous nursery products.
While the products haven’t been banned, the government is warning parents and caregivers to stop using infant sleep positioners. These are the soft fabric products that parents put in cribs to keep babies safely sleeping on their backs.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission and the Food and Drug Administration say they know of 12 infants in the last 13 years who died when they suffocated in a positioned or became trapped and suffocated between the positioned and the side of the crib.
This is a significant safety problem that must be addressed. Hopefully it will soon be resolved. If you or someone you know has a child who has been injured by one of child accidents listed above you need information.
