USA- Newyork.cbslocal.com writes that a consumer alert was recently issued for parents of young infants. The CPSC is stating that nursing pillows present a potentially life-threatening danger to infants.
According to the CPSC, if children are left on the pillows or near the pillow, they can roll over, roll-off, or fall asleep in a position that is not safe. Parents are being warned not to allow their babies to sleep on nursing pillows or other similar products. Data linked 28 fatalities to nursing pillows so far.
According to safety experts, the pillows should include better messaging warning parents of the potential risks. It should be made clear to parents that the pillows are not intended to be used for infants to sleep on. Statistics indicate that close to 1,000 infants are killed every year because they suffocate in their sleep. There are several concerns regarding products designed for babies to sleep in, including cribs and inclined sleepers. The pillow warning is one of several sleep-related notices officials released following an investigation.
The CPSC did not specify any brand names in its report. Rather, the agency states that they are investigating all nursing pillow related products. The CPSC chose to get the word out as quickly as possible following reports of fatalities. According to experts, nursing pillows can be helpful when they are used as intended. A nursing pillow can prop up a baby to make nursing more comfortable for the mother and the child. When used incorrectly, these pillows can present serious risks and lead to tragedies.
Numerous baby products designed for infants to sleep in had presented risks over the years. Rock n Play devices recently underwent a recall due to concerns about suffocation risks. Those products were especially popular with new parents, leading to a large recall. Parents can register many baby products in order to ensure that they are notified if that product is subject to a recall.
