The Consumer Product Safety Commission has filed a complaint against the makers of Nap Nanny, a portable baby recliner, after five infant deaths. The newest model of the Nap Nanny, called The Chill, along with two other models pose serious risk for injury or death to infants.
The complaint includes a request for the makers of Nap Nanny, Baby Matters LLC, to inform the public of the dangers of this product and offer a full refund for consumers. An email from the company states that Baby Matters went out of business a month ago and doesn’t believe the complaint has merit. They stand behind the safety of their product.
The first death occurred in July of 2010, along with 22 injuries from infants hanging out or falling over the side of the Nap Nanny, even when used properly. Since then, four more deaths have been linked to the Nap Nanny.
The Nap Nanny mimics a car seat, with curves that elevate the baby to reduce reflux, gas, stuffiness or other problems. Over 150,000 products have been sold of the three models since 2009.
