Baby Dies in Recalled Nap Nanny Chair
If you own the Nap Nanny, you’ll want to stop using it immediately as another baby has died as a result of the recalled product.
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, an 8-month-old baby girl in New Jersey is the latest of several babies to die in the Nap Nanny.
The baby who lost her life was secured into the chair by a belt but was found hanging over its side, trapped between the chair and a crib bumper.
The design of the Nap Nanny was to mimic the curves of a baby car seat, elevating an infant slightly to help reduce reflux, gas, stuffiness or other problems. The chairs aren’t being sold in stores anymore but the CPSC says they’re still a popular item to find at yard sales and online auctions and to receive as hand-me-down gifts.
“The products are hazardous and it is illegal to sell or resell them.” the CPSC says. About 165,000 of the Nap Nanny and Chill products were sold between 2009 and 2012 for about $130.
