The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Fisher-Price are warning consumers about the Fisher-Price Rock ‘n Play due to reports of infant deaths when they rolled over in the product.
The CPSC is aware of 10 infant deaths in the Rock ‘n Play since 2015, after the babies rolled from their back to their stomach or side while unrestrained. All of the infants were 3 months or older.
Consumers should stop using the product when infants reach 3 months of age or show signs of being able to roll over. CPSC previously warned consumers to use restraints in infant inclined sleep products.
Caregivers also are reminded to create a safe sleep environment for infants. Always place infants to sleep on their backs on a firm surface without blankets, pillows, stuffed toys or other soft items.
