What Makes Inclined Sleepers So Dangerous?
From 2005 to 2019, inclined sleepers were linked to at least 73 infant deaths and more than 1,000 incidents, including serious injuries, according to the CPSC. An investigation by the agency revealed that none of the inclined beds and swings they tested were safe for sleep.
Between 2009 and 2022, at least 14 infants died after falling asleep in inclined rockers from Fisher-Price and Kids2. Even more disturbing, these numbers were all calculated before the more than 80 most recent infant deaths associated with inclined, rocking sleepers.
Inclined sleepers position babies at a steep and unsafe-for-sleep incline ranging from 10 to 30+ degrees. They are poorly designed because babies’ heads are heavy, and their necks are weak, so when their heads inevitably droop down toward their chest when sleepy, their neck muscles are often not strong enough to lift them back up, which can result in suffocation.
There’s also a risk that the inclined sleeper’s restraining belt can potentially slide up and cut off infants' airflow, causing suffocation or strangulation. Additionally, many of the recalled inclined sleepers feature plush surfaces that pose an extra suffocation risk if your baby leans their face into the soft surface.
