Thinking About Buying a Nap Nanny? Think Again!
If you’ve been thinking about purchasing a Nap Nanny, or know someone who uses this product, please read on! According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, or CPSC, a sixth baby has died using a recalled “Nap Nanny” infant recliner. The 8 month old baby girl was from New Jersey and she suffocated while being secured by the belt as she was trapped between the product and a crib bumper.
DO NOT purchase this product in online auctions or at yard sales, as they could be part of the recalled batch.
According to ABC News,
About 165,000 Nap Nanny and Nap Nanny Chill recliners were sold between 2009 and 2012. Nap Nannies — which are no longer sold in stores — were recalled last year, but for months the company that made the portable recliner refused to pull it from shelves or offer refunds, instead insisting on the product’s safety when used properly.
In a statement, an official with the company, now out of business for two years, told ABC News it was heartbroken for the families who have lost a child, but said the Nap Nanny was never intended for use in a crib.
