Consumer Advocates Support Rulemaking on Infant Sleep Products

CFA and other consumer groups support the Supplemental Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPR) on Infant Sleep Products issued by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). CFA has expressed serious concerns about the dangers of inclined sleep products including the Nap Nanny type loungers, free standing products like the Fisher-Price Rock ‘n Play, and infant hammocks. Our organizations find it deeply troubling that currently, products intended for infant sleep that are not bassinets, cribs or play yards, can freely enter the marketplace without meeting a safety standard. This is confusing to parents and caregivers, who presume that the infant sleep products they can buy must be safe.
