Parents warned to stop using this baby rocker ASAP.

At least 10 babies have died in Fisher-Price’s ‘Rock ‘n Play’ sleeper since 2015, a warning from the company and the US Product Safety Commission (USPSC) revealed on Friday.

The USPSC did not reveal the exact causes of the babies’ deaths, but said they died after rolling from their stomachs to the backs or sides unrestrained in the sleeper.

A previous warning from Fisher-Price said that babies over three months old that were not buckled into the sleeper had rolled over and fallen out of it to their deaths.

Both the USPSC and Fisher-Price are warning parents to stop using the rocking crib without restraints for children over three months old.

They are begging parents to stop using the Rock ‘n Play Sleeper as soon as their children are able to roll over when they are awake – as they are then able to do so in their sleep too – or after they are three months old.

  • Thanks for this warning and I would always strap bubs in anyway but I guess sometimes you might forget. How very sad for all those parents who have lost bubs.

  • Do not leave them unattended is the key message. The name is confusing as it says Rock and Sleep but ideally you don’t want them to sleep in it.

  • Thank you for alerting us to the danger. I have never seen one with the part the baby lays in positioned on the frame as this one is. One of the other brands you can adjust the “tilt” of the part baby lays in or even with a tiny baby in it there is the danger of baby tipping over out and baby falling out even with the so called harness done up.
