"5.4 Million Rock 'n Play Sleepers Linked to 115 Infant Deaths"

The Rock 'n Play Sleeper, manufactured by Fisher-Price was recalled due to reports of more than 115 infant deaths associated with the product. The recall affects approximately 5.4 million units of the sleeper that were sold in the United States. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) advises that the product be immediately discontinued use.




As of 2021, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have issued warnings and recommendations against the use of inclined sleep products, including the Rock 'n Play Sleeper, due to reports of more than 115 infant deaths associated with the product. The CPSC advises that the product be immediately discontinued use. Therefore, I would not recommend the use of Rock 'n Play sleepers.


The AAP recommends that infants be placed on their backs to sleep, as this position has been shown to reduce the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). Safe sleepers for infants include bassinets, cribs, Pack 'n Play, and co-sleepers. These options should have a firm, flat surface without any soft bedding or loose objects and should be used according to the manufacturer's instructions. Parents should also check for any recalls or safety warnings before using any sleepers.
