After the reported deaths of 10 infants, the US Consumers Product Safety Commission and FIsher-Price have jointly issued a warning about the Rock ’n Play sleeper. The deaths, since 2015, apparently occurred after the infants rolled over while in the seat.
The company advises that parents stop using the seat when the child reaches 3 months old or exhibits rollover capabilities. The incidents happened after infants rolled over from their back and unrestrained in the seat. All were 3 months or older, the statement said. Fisher-Price said parents should always use the sleeper’s harness to secure infants.
