Baby sleep positioners, a popular product for safety-conscious parents, were supposed to save lives by keeping infants from rolling onto their stomachs. Instead, these products are now being added to the growing list of dangerous nursery products. While the products haven’t been banned, the government is warning parents and caregivers to stop using infant sleep positioners. These are the soft fabric products that parents put in cribs to keep babies safely sleeping on their backs.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission and the Food and Drug Administration say they know of 12 infants in the last 13 years who died when they suffocated in a positioner or became trapped and suffocated between the positioner and the side of a crib. This is a significant safety problem that must be addressed. Hopefully it will soon be resolved. Parents should be able to rely on the manufacturers of product used for babies to design and sell only products that are safe to use.
