Doctors Urge Recall of Fisher Price Sleeper Seat

Fisher Price Rock 'N Play							Handout  Consumer Reports

According to Evan Overton, the infant's mother, they haven't filed suit but are negotiating with Fisher-Price.

"A child fatality is an unimaginable tragedy". "Our main thing is to inform other people so, that it won't happen to somebody else".

A separate investigation by Consumer Reports, however, revealed that the Rock 'n Play sleeper was tied to at least 32 infant deaths - a far cry from the number reported by both Fisher-Price and the CPSC.

"We continue to work closely with the Consumer Product Safety Commission regarding the safe use of our products, including the Rock 'n Play Sleeper", a spokesman said.

"We understand that Mattel has not shipped the Fisher Price Rock 'n Play to Australian retailers since 2012".

But the AAP said on Tuesday that the warning does not go far enough. "That's why [the AAP] feels a move toward a recall is really important".

Peachman said this product should be off the market.so there is no confusion for parents.

"When parents purchase a product for their baby or child, many assume that if it's being sold in a store, it must be safe to use", Yasuda said. Tragically, that is not the case.

Fisher-Price's Rock 'n Play Sleeper, a device created to help infants fall asleep, should be recalled "immediately", the American Academy of Pediatrics said. The loss of a child is tragic and heart-breaking. Some models include a feature that automatically rocks the inclined sleeper with a button; others vibrate or rock manually.

The AAP does not recommend any sleeping products for infants or any products that require restraining a baby.

The inclined sleeper has been associated with 32 sleep-related infant deaths, according to a new Consumer Reports analysis. The AAP says the design causes asphyxia, or the lack of ability to breathe, based on the baby's position in the sleeper.

But AAP's chair of the Task Force on SIDS said the product fails to meet the group's recommendations for a "safe sleep environment".

The Rock 'n Play is still on store shelves because there's no reported defect. It also advises against using vehicle seats, strollers or other devices for sleep. Combine that with the risk of suffocation, and Hoffman says the Fisher-Price cot "is just not a safe sleep environment". Buerkle has confirmed that 10 babies older than three months have died in the cot since 2015, and says the agency is in the midst of investigating another 22 deaths to see if they are linked to the sleeper. It noted that the company does not believe that "any deaths have been caused by the product" citing "the many situations where a medical/health condition was identified as the cause of death, and/or those in which the product was clearly used in a manner contrary to the safety warnings and instructions".

The most recent infant death took place last month, CPSC spokeswoman Patty Davis told CNN.
