A sixth baby has died using the Nap Nanny, the recliner for babies that made national headlines in 2012 after five babies died while using versions of the product.
ABC News reports:
The latest tragedy involved an 8-month-old girl from New Jersey. The baby suffocated while secured by a belt, trapped between the product and a crib bumper. (Consumer Product Safety Commission) officials said the infant was found stuck over the side of a Nap Nanny.
The two products—the Nap Nanny and the Nap Nanny Chill—were recalled last June by Baby Matters LLC, the company that created it. Prior to that recall, several retailers had issued their own recalls in response to the five deaths. According to ABC, about 165,000 of the recliners were sold prior to the recall.Adam can be reached at email@example.com. Follow him on Twitter at @adamtvaccaro.
