Four Retailers Participating in Nap Nanny Recall

Jan 2, 2013

Following the news that the company, Nap Nanny, had gone out of business earlier this year, four national retailers agreed to recall over 150,000 Nap Nanny baby recliners this past week. The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced last Thursday that major retailers agreed to participate in the voluntary recall after the report of five infant deaths and numerous reports of infants falling out of the recliner.

A Message from the Owner/Founder of Baby Matters LLC, pointed to the cost of an initial recall of the Nap Nanny Generation One prompted by the CPSC as one of the leading factors in the company’s closing. The company manufactured Generation One and Two recliners, as well as the Chill Model Infant Recliner between 2009 and 2012. During that period they sold over 50,000 Generation Two recliners, 5,000 Generation One recliners, and 100,000 Chill model recliners.

The Nap Nanny is an infant recliner designed for sleeping or resting infants; the product consists of a bucket seat shaped foam base and a fitted fabric cover with a harness. The recliner was designed to mimic the curves of a baby car seat, and designed to be used on the ground while supervised. The CPSC warns consumers that the Nap Nanny recliner contains defects that could be dangerous, and potentially fatal to infants. The first two versions of the recliner were recalled in 2010 after 22 reports of infants hanging or falling over the side of the recliner, even though they had been secured in the harness. The CPSC points to flaws in the product’s design, warnings, and instructions as leading to these tragic accidents.

Amazon, Buy Buy Baby, and Toys R Us/Babies R Us agreed to participate in the voluntary recall because the manufacturer is unable to or unwilling to participate in the recall. The CPSC urges consumers to review the individual return policies of retailers participating in the voluntary recall.

The infant deaths associated with this product are truly tragic. Any time a trusted product causes injuries or deaths, it’s a setback to parents everywhere. Please remember to supervise your children whenever they are in a restrained seat or bed.
