WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recently warned the public about infant inclined sleepers. Now CPSC is warning consumers about Summer Infant, Inc.’s SwaddleMe By Your Bed Sleeper.
Based on CPSC staff’s evaluation of the product, how it is used, and outside expert analysis, CPSC staff believes that the Summer Infant SwaddleMe By Your Bed Sleeper puts infants at risk of suffocation. Although CPSC is not aware of any incidents or deaths involving the Summer Infant SwaddleMe By Your Bed Sleeper, CPSC urges consumers to stop using the product immediately.
To date, CPSC and Summer Infant have not reached agreement to recall the SwaddleMe By Your Bed Sleeper. CPSC intends to continue pressing for a recall.
The agency continues to emphasize that the best place for a baby to sleep is on a firm, flat surface in a crib, bassinet, or play yard. Parents and caregivers should never add blankets, pillows, or other items to an infant’s sleeping environment. Babies should always be placed to sleep on their back.
Report any inclined sleeper incidents to CPSC at www.SaferProducts.gov.
