Baby Sleeper Lawsuits & Class Actions

In April 2019, a grieving family from Delaware filed a class action lawsuit (PDF) against Fisher-Price after their 3 month-old daughter suffocated and died in a Rock ‘n Play Sleeper within a few minutes. They say the recall came “far too late” and accuse the company of ignoring warning signs and selling a dangerous product.

Baby Sleepers Linked to 53 Deaths

Baby sleepers, also known as inclined bassinets, are linked to at least 53 deaths, according to Consumer Reports. The products are designed to make babies sleep at an incline between 10º and 30º — but the problem is that all of these products increase the risk of airway compression, suffocation, and death.

What is the Problem?

Babies can roll over from their back to their stomach or side and suffocate against the fabric walls of the sleeper. Another problem is that very young infants who can’t hold their head up can suffocate if their chin touches their chest and compresses their airway, in a condition known as positional asphyxia.

Fisher-Price Rock ‘n Play Baby Sleeper Recall

In April 2019, Fisher-Price recalled 4.7 million Rock ‘n Play Sleepers after they were linked to 32 deaths since 2009. The babies died when they “rolled over while unrestrained, or under other circumstances” according to the recall posted by the CPSC.
