Popular Inclined Sleepers Led to Death in Infants

Study by Consumer Product Safety Commission Confirms

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has found that inclined baby sleepers are unsafe and the CPSC has called for taking the popular product entirely off the market. The action followed the reported deaths of at least 73 infants in inclined sleepers. The danger that lies within these devices is the risk of babies rolling onto their side or backs while unrestrained and suffocating to death.

Condemned by the American Academy of Pediatrics, incline sleepers have been found to cause torticollis (which twists the head to one side), flatting parts of infants’ skulls, and suffocation. Both the AAP and numerous other organizations have called for parents to discontinue use of all products marketed as incline sleepers due to the high number of infant fatalities due to their design.
