UPDATE: Sixth Infant Death Linked to Nap Nanny Infant Recliner

May 29, 2014 — The CPSC has announced the tragic death of a sixth infant in a Nap Nanny Infant Recliner. Though a recall has been issued, used products continue to be sold at yard sales, as hand-me-down gifts, and online auction websites. The CPSC is urging consumers not to use the products and to dispose of them immediately. They are illegal to sell or resell. Click here to read more.

December 6, 2012 — Despite a recall in 2010, the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) has received 5 additional reports of infants who died, and more than 70 additional incident reports. Discussions with Baby Matters, LLC have failed to result in a recall plan that will adequately address the hazard. Therefore, the CPSC has filed an administrative lawsuit against the company.

What is the Nap Nanny Infant Recliner?

The Nap Nanny is a type of infant recliner — a molded piece of foam with an indentation, a fitted fabric cover, and a harness. The product is intended for infants to sit, rest, sleep, or play. The product should never be placed on an elevated surface, in a crib, playpen, or other enclosed area.

There are several models of Nap Nanny:

  • Nap Nanny Generation One (recalled)
  • Nap Nanny Generation Two (recalled)
  • Nap Nanny Chill

All Nap Nanny products are sold by Baby Matters, LLC. Since 2009, the company sold about 5,000 Generation One models and 50,000 Generation Two models. The Nap Nanny Chill model has sold about 100,000 units since January 2011 and it is still on the market.

What is the problem with the Nap Nanny?

The problem with the Nap Nanny infant recliners is that infants can fall or hang over the side of the product, even while properly secured in the harness. This is very dangerous. If the product is inside a crib, the infant can suffocate between the Nap Nanny and the edge of a crib. If the product is on a table, the infant can fall and suffer a deadly head injury.

The manufacturer has received nearly 100 incident reports, including 6 reports of infants who died while using the Nap Nanny infant recliners.

Nap Nanny Recalls

On July 26, 2010, the CPSC and Baby Matters, LLC voluntarily recalled the Nap Nanny infant recliners after a 4-month-old girl suffocated and died because the recliner was placed in a crib. The manufacturer and the CPSC had also received 22 reports of infants who fell out of the recliner despite being secured in the harness.

Baby Matters re-designed the recliner and placed additional warnings and instructions on the new product. They also offered customers an $80 coupon toward the purchase of a new infant recliner.

Despite the “new and improved” design, infants continued to be injured and killed in the recliners. By December 2012, the CPSC had received 5 additional reports of infants who died, and more than 70 more incident reports.

Risks and Hazards of the Nap Nanny Infant Recliner

The following life-threatening hazards have been associated with the Nap Nanny infant recliners:

  • Infants can fall or hang out of the recliner, despite being in the harness
  • If the product is in a crib, infants can get trapped between the recliner and the edge of the crib
  • Suffocation
  • Falling out of the recliner from an elevated surface
  • Head injuries
  • Death
