Congress Bans Deadly Inclined Sleepers
In May 2022, Congress passed the Safe Sleep for Babies Act of 2021, a law that bans inclined sleepers and crib bumper pads. The law comes after hundreds of baby deaths, and years of advocacy from angry parents, doctors, and consumer groups.
Under the new law, manufacturers will not be allowed to sell any inclined sleeping products designed for infants under 1-year-old if the sleep surface has an incline greater than 10º.
One advocate for the law is Erika R., a mother who filed a lawsuit against Fisher-Price after her 2-week-old daughter, Emma, died while using a Fisher-Price Rock ‘n Play Sleeper. She told Good Morning America:
“I have learned that we have a long way to go when it comes to consumer protections, and that legacy brands do not equal trust. People die because they make assumptions that the brands themselves are doing their due diligence, and you cannot put that type of control in the hands of profit maker or profit owner.”
