CPSC urges parents and caregivers to avoid Summer Infant’s SwaddleMe By Your Bed Sleeper

By Colleen Kave, J.D.

Product puts infants at risk of suffocation.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is warning consumers to stop using Summer Infant, Inc.’s SwaddleMe By Your Bed Sleeper immediately. Based on CPSC staff’s evaluation of the product, how it is used, and outside expert analysis, CPSC staff believes that the Summer Infant SwaddleMe By Your Bed Sleeper puts infants at risk of suffocation. No incidents or deaths involving the product have been reported to date (CPSC News Release, No. 20-055, January 16, 2020).

CPSC is pressing Summer Infant to recall the SwaddleMe By Your Bed Sleepers, but so far the parties have not reached an agreement.

The agency is reminding parents and caregivers to observe the safety recommendations for infants’ sleep environment, including:

  • Place baby to sleep on a firm, flat surface in a crib, bassinet, or play yard.
  • Never add blankets, pillows, or other items to an infant’s sleeping environment.
  • Place babies to sleep on their back.
  • Report any inclined sleeper incidents to CPSC at www.SaferProducts.gov.
