Parents Beware: Nap Nanny Blamed for Multiple Infant Deaths

On Wednesday, December 5, 2012, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) filed an administrative complaint against Baby Matters, LLC, for its Nap Nanny and Nap Nanny Chill infant products. CPSC announced this step after failed discussions with the company regarding a voluntary recall of the infant recliners.

The complaint seeks to halt the sales and manufacture of these product due to the five infant deaths and more than seventy reports of children nearly falling out of the product. The Nap Nanny and Nap Nanny Chill are infant recliners and have been very popular infant sleep device choices for parents. In fact, according to CNN, one hundred thousand of the Nap Nanny Chill models have been sold since 2011.

In response to the Government's suit, Lelie Gudel, founder of Nap Nanny, stated that no infant using a Nap Nanny properly had ever suffered an injury requiring medical attention. Gudel also questions the accuracy of the news reporting by pointing out that the seventy complaints of incidents mentioned by the news media did not involve the Nap Nanny or the Nap Nanny chill products.

Nevertheless, CPSC is warning parents against the use of these products as a significant risk of injury and death to infants. CPSC is seeking a court order requiring the company to notify the public about the risks and offer purchasers a full refund.

If you or someone you know have been injured by a defective product for infants, contact the attorneys at Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Sorrels, Agosto & Friend by calling 713-396-3964 or 1-800-594-4884.
