Another day, another scary baby product recall. Today's news is a big deal for any new parent desperate for solutions to help their babies sleep better -- in other words, every new parent. More than 150,000 Nap Nanny baby recliners have been recalled, covering Nap Nanny Generations One and Two, and the Chill model infant recliners. All were sold between 2009 and 2012.
The recall comes after at least five infant deaths and dozens of reports of children nearly falling out of the recliners. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the Nap Nanny poses a serious risk to babies, due to defects in its design, warnings, and instructions.
It's important information to share, because the manufacturer hasn't actually agreed to the recall, and has now gone out of business. Unless parents hear about the recall through the major retailers pulling the Nap Nanny from their shelves, they may have no idea about the CPSC's complaints about the product.
