What is a Nap Nanny Infant Recliner?
The Nap Nanny is a portable infant recliner designed with an inclined indentation intended for sitting, resting, sleeping, or playing. The product comes with a fitted fabric cover and a three-point harness. Infants should be secured in the harness any time they are resting in the Nap Nanny.
Nap Nanny is manufactured by Baby Matters, LLC. Between 2009 and early 2012, about 5,000 Generation One models were sold, and 50,000 Generation Two models were sold. Both products have been recalled. Since January 2011, Baby Matters has sold about 100,000 Nap Nanny Chill models. All of the products were priced about $130.
What is the problem?
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has received 6 reports of infants who died in a Nap Nanny infant recliner, and more than 90 reports of infants who were found hanging or falling over the side of the recliner, despite the fact that most infants were in the harness.
If the Nap Nanny is placed inside a crib, play yard, or other confined area, the infant can hang over the side of the recliner and suffocate between the edge of the crib and the recliner.
If the Nap Nanny is placed on a table or other elevated surface, the infant can call over the side and suffer a serious head injury.
Nap Nanny Recalls
The Nap Nanny infant recliners were first recalled on July 26, 2010, after a 4-month old girl died when she suffocated between the recliner and the edge of her crib. At the time, the CPSC and the manufacturer had received 22 reports of infants falling out of the recliner despite being placed in the harness.
After the recall, Baby Matters offered customers an $80 coupon toward the purchase of a newer model (Generation Two), which had additional warnings and instructions.
Despite the recall and improved design, the CPSC continued to received reports of child injuries — 5 additional deaths, and 70 additional incident reports. The CPSC has filed a lawsuit against Baby Matters because the company has failed to implement a recall to address the hazard.
