Infants can partially fall out of or hang over the side of the Nap Nanny even while the harness is in use. This situation can worsen if the Velcro straps, located inside of the Nap Nanny cover, are not properly attached to the "D"-rings located on the foam, or if consumers are using the first-generation Nap Nanny model that was sold without "D"-rings. In addition, if the Nap Nanny is placed inside of a crib, play yard, or other confined area (which is not a recommended use), an infant can fall out of or hang over of the side of the Nap Nanny and become entrapped between the crib side and the Nap Nanny and suffocate. Likewise, if the Nap Nanny is placed on a table, countertop, or other elevated surface and a child falls over the side, this poses a risk of serious head injury. You should always use the Nap Nanny on the floor, away from any other products.
This recall involves about 30,000 Nap Nanny portable baby recliners. The Nap Nanny is a portable recliner designed for sleeping, resting, and playing. The recliner includes a foam base with an inclined indentation for an infant to sit in, a fitted fabric cover, and a three-point harness. The first-generation model of the Nap Nanny can be identified by the absence of "D"-rings in the foam base. In second-generation models, the harness system has "D"-rings in the foam base and Velcro straps inside of the fitted fabric cover.
The recalled Nap Nannys were sold at toy and children's retail stores nationwide and online, including at napnanny.com, from January 2009 through July 2010, for about $130.
Those with a first-generation Nap Nanny model, without "D"-rings, should stop using the recalled baby recliners immediately and contact the company to receive an $80 coupon (plus free shipping) toward the purchase of a new Nap Nanny. Those with a second-generation Nap Nanny model, with "D"-rings, should immediately stop using the product until they are able to visit the firm's website to obtain new product instructions and warnings. You can also view an important instructional video to help you ensure that the harness is properly fastened. If you are unable to view the video or new instructions online, contact the company to receive free copies by mail.
