Fisher-Price asks parents for vigilance with certain baby rockers
Fisher-Price, one of the largest manufacturers of baby products, is warning customers about some of its baby rockers.
The issue is with the Fisher-Price Infant-to-Toddler and Newborn-to-Toddler rockers.
Fisher-Price and the Consumer Product Safety Commission say that at least 13 children died between the years 2009 and 2021 in these devices.
Fisher-Price says kids should never be allowed to sleep in these rockers, and that they should always be supervised.
The company recommends that parents watch the videos on its Safe Start website for tips on how to use these products safely.
Beginning June 23, 2022, a rule recently finalized by the Consumer Product Safety Commission forbids any infant sleep products from having an angle of ten degrees or less.
Experts say that babies should sleep on firm, flat surfaces, and only with a fitted sheet. Any other bedding material poses a suffocation hazard.
