Nap Nanny Recall Announced by CPSC & Baby Matters

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with Baby Matters is announcing the voluntary recall of 30,000 Nap Nanny® portable baby recliners. CPSC is investigating a report of a 4-month-old who died in a Nap Nanny that was being used in a crib, contrary to the product instructions.

The Nap Nanny is an infant recliner designed for sleeping, resting and playing. The Nap Nanny is a solid foam unit with an inclined indentation for the infant to sit in. Over the foam unit is a fitted fabric cover and a three point harness. There are 2 generations of the Nap Nanny. To identify the difference between the two simply remove the cover and look for D-rings attached to the foam base. The old version does NOT have these D-rings. The newer version has the D-rings and Velcro straps inside the fitted fabric cover. (See below)

To learn more about the recall please view the Nap Nanny Recall Information Page or the CPSC official release. There are instructions on what to do if you have purchased one. The instructions differ based upon which generation you have which is determined by when the item was purchased.

  • If you bought a Nap Nanny after August 15, 2009 CLICK HERE
This recall is due to the fact that a consumer did NOT read the instructions provided with the product. The Nap Nanny was not intended for use in the crib and said so in the instructions. Most people don’t read instructions on many of the products they purchase but they are there for a reason. When using items with a baby, toddler or any other age family member it is important to make sure you are using the item correctly to avoid injury or even death. Protect your loved ones. It can be as simple as reading.
