Becoming a parent is a highlight for many people and it is a moment in life that they will never forget.
From the moment that they look down and see the precious little baby in their arms, they realize that they are going to have to step up their game. It’s a wonderful experience, but it isn’t without its problems.
One of the issues that many families face is the fact that the children don’t sleep very well. There’s nothing quite like looking at a sleeping baby but when they aren’t sleeping, it can really be difficult to make it from one day to the next.
In order to help their children sleep, many parents will do almost anything, from taking them on a long car ride to putting them in a carrier on the clothes dryer while it is running.
One of the ways that some parents find works well for their children is to put them in a device that rocks the baby gently. Those baby seats are not necessarily meant for putting babies to sleep, but they work well in that regard. However, they can also be very dangerous, which is why we are seeing Fisher-Price recall some of their models.
Fisher-Price, along with the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), announced the recall of two Fisher-Price products. The recall includes the Fisher-Price 4-in-1 Rock ‘n Glide Soothers and the 2-in-1 Soothe ‘n Play Gliders.
These products have been around for a while, so you may have them new or perhaps even used. The problem is, 4 infant deaths have been reported because of these gliders since 2019. In each of the cases, the babies were put in the glider on their backs, but later, the parents discovered them on their stomachs. These gliders are for young children that are not able to roll over yet.
The CPSC reports that about 120,000 of the 4-in1 Rock ‘n Glide Soothers and about 50,000 2-in-1 Soothe ‘n Play Gliders have been sold. They were a popular item at large retail stores, such as Walmart and Target. They were also found online on Amazon and other stores.
For those that own one of these gliders, it is important to stop using it right away. You can get a full refund by contacting Fisher-Price, either by calling 855-853-6224 between the hours of 9 AM and 6 PM or going to their website and following the “recall & safety alerts” link.SKM: below-content placeholder
