Parents whose child was injured in a Nap Nanny infant recliner may have legal recourse in light of recent reports. According to ABC News, the U.S. Product Safety Commission has filed a lawsuit which alleges that the Nap Nanny Generation One, Generation Two or chill infant recliners "pose a substantial risk of injury and death to infants." The suit seeks a court order requiring the manufacturer, Baby Matters, LLC, to notify the public about the defect; however, some attorneys believe that suits on behalf of children injured in the recliners may also be viable.

Nap Nanny Lawsuit Filed by CPSC
The CPSC filed a complaint against Baby Matters, LLC after it received reports of four infant deaths in Nap Nanny Generation Two recliners, and an additional death involving the Chill model. According to the complaint, the products contain design defects and lacked proper warnings and instructions, putting infants at risk for serious injury or death. It has been reported that the suit was filed after discussion with the manufacturer failed to culminate in an adequate recall plan. Allegedly, the products put children at risk when they are used in a crib or without the harness straps being properly secured.
Nap Nanny Recall
The first two versions of the infant recliner were subject to a July 2010 recall after the CPSC learned of one death and 22 reports of children falling or hanging out of the recliners, even when secured with the harness. Allegedly, a six-month old suffered positional asphyxia while using the Generation Two infant recliner. It has been alleged that despite updates to the products' warnings and instructions additional deaths involving the infant recliners have been reported.
