Another Inclined Sleeper Linked to Infant's Death

Another Inclined Sleeper Linked to Infant's Death Jayme Minnich, of Sinking Springs, Pa., noticed that his 3-month-old son Cayson wasn’t breathing 30 minutes after he put him down to nap. Cayson was on his back, in a hammock-shaped insert sold w ith the Lullaby Dream Playard. While Jayme's wife performed CPR, he called 911. Cayson was soon rushed to the hospital by ambulance, but it was too late. According to a lawsuit recently filed by the firm Feldman Shepherd against Chicco USA, the maker of the product, hospital staff couldn’t revive Cayson. He had suffocated while sleeping on his back in the inclined sleeper, the suit alleges.

Inclined sleepers for infants have been controversial since Fisher-Price invented them more than a decade ago. A new study confirms the design is dangerous and deadly.

Amanda Butler's daughter, Arya, died in a Fisher-Price Rock 'n Play Sleeper.

"It's turned our life upside down," Butler said.

Nationwide, 59 babies have died in that type of sleeper since 2005, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Millions of sleepers were recalled.

New study finds children don't like nature as much as you think they do

New study finds children don't like nature as much as you think they do New US research has found that children might not have an inherent love of nature like we think they do, but a preference for a natural environment appears to develop over time.

Design . Fashion. Architecture. Memory card found on street leads to murder suspect. (CNN) The federal Consumer Product Safety Commission and Fisher - Price are recalling all of the company's Rock ' n Play Sleepers, with the commission linking the product to over 30 infant deaths in 10 years. This grieving family wants Fisher - Price 's Rock ' n Play sleeper recalled and pediatrics group agrees.

The safety commission's new study said that none of the inclined sleep products it examined are safe for babies to sleep. The study was led by Erin Mannen, assistant professor at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences.

"Babies are dying and have died in these products," said Mannen. "Based on the results of our research, it's something that has to do with the design of the product."

Pediatric experts say babies should sleep flat on their backs. But some infant sleepers are set on an incline, as high as 30 degrees. Doctors say the angled position can cause the head to fall forward and block an infant's airway.

The safety commission said suffocation risk to infants disappeared when the incline was below 10 degrees. But doctors had warned of risks for years and Butler believes earlier action would have saved her daughter's life.

"Our daughter had a full life ahead of her. She only got to live ten weeks of it. I don't want anyone else to have to go through that," she said.

The safety commission is expected to vote on the tougher standard next week. It will then be open for comments.

All Infant Inclined Sleep Products Should Be Recalled, Consumer Reports Says .
In addition, the Consumer Product Safety Commission says that “none of the inclined sleep products that were tested and evaluated as part of this study are safe for infant sleep.” Based in part on that study, the CPSC’s staff proposed last week that infant inclined sleepers be eliminated from the market by recommending that no infant sleeper exceed a back angle of 10 degrees.
