Do you use a co-sleeper for baby? CNP Brands has just issued a safety recall for the Childcare Snuggle Time Bedside Sleeper.
There is some concern that a malfunction may cause an unsafe sleeping position.
The affected co-sleeping bassinets were sold nationally at Baby Bunting stores between May 2017 and September 2018.
Product Safety Australia says the drop-side bassinet mattress base may lean very slightly left to right, towards the drop down side (the co-sleeper function side of the product).
This slight incline can may cause a baby using the bassinet to roll if the unit is not set up correctly, placed on an uneven surface or have a manufactured variation of 1.5 degrees. SIDS recommendations are for infants to ALWAYS be put to sleep on their back.
There have been no reports of injuries to babies. The problem only affects some models of the co-sleeper:
Model number: 036310-356
Design: Storm Cloud
Barcode number: 9314824024786
What should consumers do?
“Consumers should test their unit and if the unit is not level, contact the distributor for a replacement mattress cover, which can be placed over the existing mattress of the product to ensure that any impacted units lay flat as intended,” the recall notice says.
