Fisher-Price Rock 'n Play Sleeper Lawsuit

Popular Fisher-Price Sleeper Has Caused Asphyxiation Deaths

Fisher-Price's popular Rock 'n Play baby sleeper was recalled in April of 2019 due to significant concerns about the safety of the device. The manufacturer has confirmed 32 Rock 'n Play sleeper deaths of infants, caused by asphyxiation or smothering. The design of the deadly Rock 'n Play sleeper, also known as an inclined sleeper, features an angled seat that nestles the baby at a 30-degree incline. Marketed as "safe for all-night sleep" the Rock 'n Play sleeper design violates safety standards for cribs and bassinets, as well as fundamental "Safe to Sleep" recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Despite safety concerns raised since the device was first marketed in 2009, Fisher-Price and parent company Mattel have sold approximately 4.7 million Rock 'n Plays in the United States. In comparison, Australian safety experts never permitted the sale of Rock 'n Play sleepers, and Health Canada only allowed the product if marketed as a "soother", with warnings to supervise infants at all times during use. Parents across the United States have put their newborns in harm's way in the now-recalled Rock 'n Play sleepers since 2009, with no knowledge of the deadly danger for asphyxiation or smothering. Mattel, which actively advocated the dangerous inclined sleeper be exempt from sleep safety standards, had sales of approximately $4.5 billion in 2018.

Today, Fisher Price and Mattel face difficult questions over the record of Rock 'n Play sleeper deaths. A deep look into the design process reveals a flawed approach that prioritized company profits over the safety of newborn babies. When a company lacks the moral compass to do right by consumers, litigation becomes the best tool for consumers to seek justice. Families whose child was harmed or died as a result of an inclined sleeper such as Fisher-Price Rock 'n Play or Kids II Ingenuity Moonlight Rocking Sleeper are filing Rock 'n Play sleeper lawsuits against the manufacturer. Filing a baby sleeper lawsuit is the only means to obtain deserved compensation for the suffering, medical expenses and loss and hold Fisher-Price accountable for selling a deadly baby sleeper.

Rock 'n Play Sleeper Dangers

In an era where safe newborn sleeping recommendations are clear about flat, firm, and wide surfaces to prevent SIDS, the very idea of an inclined sleeping device marketed for overnight and unsupervised use by newborns is preposterous. The very design of the Fisher-Price Rock 'n Play baby sleeper violates these standards and puts newborns and infants at risk for death by asphyxiation and smothering. Read full information on baby sleeper dangers, for both the Fisher Price Rock 'n Play and the Kids II Moonlight Rocking Sleeper.

Rock 'n Play Sleeper Recall

The baby sleeper recall came under intense pressure from the American Academy of Pediatrics after Consumer Reports released a comprehensive investigation into product design, interactions with federal regulators, and a total of 32 confirmed Rock 'n Play sleeper deaths. Parents are instructed to stop using the dangerous baby sleepers immediately. Read full Rock 'n Play baby sleeper recall information.
