Nap Nanny infant recliner seats, a popular option for mothers with babies suffering from acid reflux or sleep issues, is being sued by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
The Nap Nanny seats are portable recliners for playing, resting and sleeping. The seats are constructed of a foam base that is shaped for the baby as well as a three-point harness covered in a fitted fabric.
While there have been recalls of their products issued in the past, the 5th baby death prompted the complaint that led to the action being taken.
The order seeks to require Baby Matters, the company behind the products, to notify the public of the product defects and to offer consumers refunds. According to the CPSC the seats are dangerous if used in cribs or when the harness isn’t securely fastened.
When defective product cases like these occur it’s important to know your legal rights and contact a lawyer.
