Kids2 Rocker Linked to 1 Baby Death in 2019
In June 2022, Kids2 issued a Safety Warning after a baby died in a Bright Starts® Disney Baby® Minnie Mouse Infant-to-Toddler Rocker in 2019. The company issued this warning:
“Kids2 Bright Starts and Baby Einstein Rockers should never be used for sleep and infants should never be unsupervised or unrestrained in the Rockers.”
Fisher-Price Baby Rocker Linked to 13 Deaths
The warning was announced at the same time that 13 baby deaths were linked to Fisher-Price Rockers, including the Fisher-Price Infant-to-Toddler Rocker and the Newborn-to-Toddler Rocker, between 2009 and 2021.
Kids2 sells many types of baby rockers that pose deadly safety hazards for babies. The baby who died was using a Kids II Bright Starts Disney Baby Minnie Mouse Stars and Smiles Infant-to-Toddler Rocker, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
What is the Risk?
Babies can suffocate to death in minutes when using an inclined sleeper or baby rockers. The problem is that babies can flip over from their back to their stomach, or twist onto their side, and get trapped with their face pressed into the fabric.
Head Injury & Tip-Over Risk of Baby Rockers
Baby rockers also pose a risk of head injuries. The problem is that older babies can flip the rocker forward, lean over the side, or tip over and hit their head on the floor, even when they are properly restrained with the harness.
Babies can suffer serious head injuries, lacerations, or get trapped under the rocker. There are many 1-star reviews on amazon.com of babies who tipped over in a rocker, even while wearing the harness.
Was My Baby Rocker Recalled?
Kids2 is not recalling baby rockers. The company has sold around 1.8 million baby rockers in the U.S., but no recall was announced because the rockers are not advertised for sleeping.
Rockers Could be Banned Under Safe Sleep for Babies Act
Even so, baby rockers could soon be banned under the Safe Sleep for Babies Act, a law that will take effect in June 2022. This law will ban all inclined “rockers, bouncers, and other soothing infant seats regardless of whether they are intended and marketed for sleep,” according to CPSC Commissioner Rich Trumka Jr.
Kids2 Recalls All Rocking Sleepers After 5 Baby Deaths
In April 2019, Kids2 recalled around 700,000 Rocking Sleepers after 5 babies suffocated to death. The recalled rocking sleepers were sold under dozens of brands, including Disney Baby, Bright Starts, Ingenuity, Rock ‘n Soothe, DreamComfort, and more.
