Major Baby Bath Seat Recall: What You Need to Know

idea baby bath seatA huge recall involving thousands of baby bath seats has been issued due to possible drowning risks -- so now is probably a good time to check your tub to see if you're bathing your child in one of them.

There are actually two different recalls. The first is for 34,000 Idea Baby Bath Seats (pictured at left), which were sold at Buy Buy Baby, both in stores and online, and at Bed Bath & Beyond between September 2012 and April 2013.

While no babies have actually been harmed while using the seats, the Consumer Product Safety Commission has determined that they can tip over in the tub, which can pose a drowning risk to babies.

And the second recall involves 5,600 BeBeLove E-Zee Bath Seats, which were sold online, including through Amazon.com and Overstock.com, between May 2011 and November 2012. (Pictured below.)

Since the seats do not meet federal safety standards for stability, there's the potential that they can tip over and pose a drowning risk, just like the Idea Baby Bath Seats.

Both seats are intended for use for infants between the ages of 5 and 10 months old, so even if your baby isn't old enough to sit up, make sure to check and see if you received one of these seats as a gift.

If you do happen to have one of them, here's what you need to do.

For the Idea Baby seat, you can either return it at any Buy Buy Baby store for either a refund or store credit, or you can also visit www.buybuybaby.com or www.bedbathandbeyond.com for recall information.

With the BeBeLove E-Zee Bath Seat, either visit www.bebeloveusa.com for more info, or contact the company via phone at (888) 464-1218 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday to receive your refund.

Do you have one of these bath seats?

"If you do happen to have one of them, here's what you need to do."  Should have been followed with: never leave your baby unattended in the bath and the chair will work as intended!  Both my kids used one of these and they survived because I was right there the entire time.  Common sense people.  If you don't have any, don't have kids.

So they can tip over? Shouldn't we just assume that any bath seat can tip over...

These recalls should be started off with saying "to the stupid and reckless parents". Anything bad can happen in any baby tub. That's why parental supervision is important. Who are these idiot breeders who don't know supervision is always required?
