Stop using baby sleep devices, U.S. tells parents
Risk of suffocation from positioning devices outweighs benefit, officials warn
WASHINGTON — Sleep positioners marketed with the promise of helping babies sleep safely are too dangerous to use and should not be sold, U.S. officials warned on Wednesday.
"The deaths and dangerous situations resulting from the use of infant sleep positioners are a serious concern," Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) Chairman Inez Tenenbaum said in a joint statement with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
She said parents and caregivers should "stop using these sleep positioners, so that children can have a safer sleep."
I used one, but, mine was WAY smaller than the new ones. That is probably why they are having issues. I also stopped using it when he could roll from tummy to back.
NEW ONE:OLDONE: GBig difference in sizing.
