December 10, 2012 – Last week, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) filed a lawsuit against the makers of Nap Nanny and Nap Nanny Chill baby recliners in response to the deaths of at least five infants that may have been caused by the dangerous design of the beds. The lawsuit is intended to force a nationwide Nap Nanny recall that would inform all retailers and consumers who purchased the beds of the unreasonable dangers they pose. The CPSC’s lawsuit marks only the fourth administrative complaint filed by the agency in the last 11 years, a statistic that highlights the seriousness of the situation with Nap Nanny baby recliners.
Nap Nanny Recall Update 6/2/14: Another baby death has been linked to the Nap Nanny Infant Recliner, the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) announced today. The death occurred in Hopatcong, N.J., where an 8-month-old baby girl fastened in a belt was found hanging over the side of a Nap Nanny, trapped between the recliner and a crib bumper.

What’s the Problem with Nap Nanny Baby Beds?
In July 2010, a first generation of Nap Nanny baby recliners were recalled nationwide after the CPSC received information about the death of an infant, as well as 22 reports of babies hanging or falling out of the beds, despite the use of a three-point harness designed to avoid these types of accidents. After the recall, Baby Matters LLC released an updated version of the Nap Nanny with more detailed warnings and instructions, as well as the Nap Nanny Chill. However, these versions proved to be unsafe as well, having been linked to five additional deaths and at least 70 incident reports.
The proposed recall would involve approximately 55,000 generation one and two Nap Nanny baby recliners, as well as about 100,000 Nap Nanny Chill baby beds. The CPSC’s lawsuit calls for Baby Matters to issue an urgent public notice stating that both products are dangerous and defective. It also requires the company to mail a notice to all consumers and retailers who purchased the baby beds. Additionally, Baby Matters would also be required to provide a complete refund to every consumer who purchased a recliner included in the recall, and provide the CPSC with regular reports regarding its progress in reaching all its customers.
