Passing this article along. Up until this announcement I have only herd good things about them! It will be interesting to see what caused these deaths...


 


Anyone have one? Thoughts?

Wow, I'd never heard of one before but how sad that it looks so safe and it apparently wasn't.  It looks like a clever design too.  How sad for those poor families.

From what I read the deaths happened because the parents put the Nap Nanny in the crib which is a huge no no and is clearly labeled on the product. 


What I don't understand is how it is the company's fault?  It's like getting hot coffee, burning yourself and then suing the coffee shop - it's clearly marked on the cup "Caution Hot". 


Take the Bumbo seat - it was recalled because parents where placing their child on a table or countertop and the child would wiggle and fall over the edge.  I have a bumbo seat and I never placed G anywhere in it other then the floor. 


If you really think about it - nothing is safe lol

Ditto Jennifer -ANYTHING can be "unsafe" if you don't use it correctly AND I'm pretty sure these products that are designed to be kept on the floor are clearly marked "do not place on an elevated surface" ...! More importantly, do these products really NEED to have these warnings on the label (well, they do so they don't get sued, but even that doesn't work!) People should have enough common sense not to place their baby up off the ground unsupervised. Period.

I've heard these are absolutely amazing for reflux babies - but yeah never in the crib and only when you are right there!

Yea- thats what I told my friend bc I read the same thing about the bumbo seats- and I know the nap nanny says not in a crib... so I agree with that- can't change stupid. So I think as more comes out it will be interesting to see what all the causes were. What more do you want, it already has a harness and they seem so sturdy. I guess we wait for further reports. But it is on my registry.

The first thing I thought when I saw the picture was parents being dumb enough to put it on a counter or dresser.  It seems only fair to sue a company if there was a malfuction with the product.  If using it properly causes harm/injury to a child, then yeah, sue the heck out of them!  But failure to follow clearly marked directions and then suing seems crazy.


"I used my hairdryer in the bathtub and it didn't go well.  How could that be my fault?"  Sheesh!
