Five Infant Deaths: CSPC to Sue Makers of Nap Nanny and Chill Infant Recliners

Retailers to recall over 150,000+ Baby Recliners. Sold at the retailers Amazon.com, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Buy Buy Baby, Diapers.com, and Toys "R" Us/ Babies "R" Us between 2009 and 2012. All of the retailers have agreed to recall the Nap Nanny at the request of the CSPC. 

As of December 5, 2012 the CPSC has filed a complaint (after a 3-0 Commission vote) against the manufacturer Baby Matters, LLC, of Berwyn, Pa., the manufacturer of Nap Nanny® and Nap Nanny Chill™ infant recliners. A recall plan could not be reached with the manufacturer and Nap Nanny's owner and founder, Leslie Gudel denies the allegations and says the product is safe when used properly- on the floor and using the harness. The company has since gone out business due to the ongoing battle with the CSPC she also states. 



The Consumer Product Safety Commission is aware of four infants who died in Nap Nanny Generation Two recliners and a fifth death involved the Chill model. CPSC has received a total of over 70 additional incident reports of children nearly falling out of the product. 


In July of 2010 announced a voluntary recall of 30,000 Nap Nanny® portable baby recliners when a report of  4-month-old girl from Royal Oak, Mich. who died in a Nap Nanny® that was being used in a crib. At that time, the CPSC and the firm have received 22 reports of infants, primarily younger than 5-months-old, hanging or falling out over the side of the Nap Nanny® despite most of the infants being placed in the harness. One infant received a bruise as a result of hanging over the side of the product. 


The recent complaint filed would force Baby Matters, LLC to inform the public of the defect and offer a full refund. I wonder how the CPSC monitors the aforementioned requirements, if at all and how are the refunds accounted for? Something to think about I guess. Hopefully, the issue is resolved and no other innocent babies and families have to suffer as a result. Will the families be filing their own lawsuits? For the families that lost their babies or any babies that were harmed. My heart goes out to you
