SLEEPING ON INCLINE NOT SAFE FOR BABY

November 20, 2019 by Adam Levin

(Source: https://www.cpsc.gov/Newsroom/News-Releases/2020/CPSC-Cautions-Consumers-Not-to-Use-Inclined-Infant-Sleep-Products).

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), a federal safety agency, has issued a warning for parents and caretakers to stop using inclined sleep products for infants, citing dozens of deaths and evidence indicating that such products do not provide a safe sleep environment for infants. The CPSC cited a new study in which the CPSC states “is part of a growing body of evidence showing that inclined sleepers with higher angles” are unsafe sleep environments for babies. The CPSC notes that there have been recalls of inclined sleepers in the past.

It is the position of the CPSC that the very best place for a baby to sleep is on a flat and firm surface in a crib, play yard, or bassinet. On the other hand, according to the study referenced by the CPSC, soft, and plush surfaces pose a real danger to infants sleeping on such surfaces. The CPSC also notes that babies should always be placed on their backs to sleep and that blankets, pillows, and any other item should never be added to the area where a bay is resting or sleeping.

As far as inclined sleep products are concerned, the CPSC recommends that parents and caregivers immediately take the following steps:

Stop using sleep products for infants which have inclined seat backs of more than ten percent (10%).
Do not use infant car seats, bouncers, and any other infant inclined products for sleep.
Follow manufacturer instructions for all baby/infant sleep products.
Check for recalls for all nursery products used by you or used by the caregivers to your children.

The attorneys at Liever, Hyman & Potter, P.C., are concerned for the safety of children and families in Reading, Berks County, Pottsville, Schuylkill County, and throughout Central and Eastern Pennsylvania, including Philadelphia. The lawyers at the firm handle injury claims, including claims for serious injury and death caused by the negligence of others and by unsafe and dangerous products. The firm also handles motor vehicle accident cases, medical malpractice cases, workers’ compensation cases, and nursing home neglect cases.
