"Infant fatalities have occurred in inclined sleepers after the infants rolled from their back to their stomach or side while unrestrained, or under other circumstances."
The recalled baby hammock swings were sold online from November 2022 through January 2023 for between $70 and $100.

The CPSC Recall Number for this item is 23-237.
What's the Problem with Inclined Sleepers?
Approximately 3,400 infants die unexpectedly during sleep in the U.S. To help prevent these deaths, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that babies should sleep on flat and firm surfaces. They should sleep by themselves, without any bumpers, soft bedding, pillows, or stuffed toys.
According to the CPSC, sleep products that incline over 10 degrees are not safe. Inclined sleepers position babies to sleep at a 30-degree angle, and infants placed in these products may fall asleep in the chin-to-chest position, which can restrict their airways. They can also roll out of the devices and become trapped under them. Inclined sleepers have been linked to over 100 deaths.
