10 infant deaths linked to recalled Boppy loungers: Urgent warning for parents to stop using

Federal regulators have issued a warning to parents after at least 10 newborn deaths were linked to the recalled Boppy Newborn Lounger. The baby pillow has been widely sold on various platforms, including Facebook Marketplace, despite being recalled.

According to NBC News, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has received reports of 10 infant deaths linked to the lounger since its launch in 2004. Two more infant deaths were recently reported, prompting the CPSC to issue another warning.

The Boppy Newborn Lounger was recalled in 2019 due to a potential suffocation risk. It is designed to support a baby in a semi-upright position, but infants can roll over and become trapped against the lounger’s soft surface.

Despite the recall, the product has remained popular and continues to be sold on various online marketplaces. The CPSC has urged parents to stop using the recalled Boppy loungers and to take advantage of the company’s refund or voucher program.

In a statement, Boppy said, “We continue to be committed to the safe use of our products for children and families, and we remind all parents and caregivers to prioritize safe sleep environments for infants, whether using a Boppy product or other products.”

This latest warning serves as a reminder to parents to always check and research the safety of baby products before purchasing them. Remember, the safety of your child should always come first.
