How Can a Baby Suffocate On the Recalled Boppy Loungers?
An infant may suffocate if the baby rolls, moves, or is placed in such a position that the newborn’s breathing is obstructed by the Boppy lounger material or if the newborn rolls off onto another pillow or soft bedding after being placed on the Boppy lounger. Infant suffocation can happen very quickly if the child’s breathing is obstructed since the infant does not have the strength or motor skills to prevent the same. All eight of the known infant suffocations reportedly occurred after the infant was placed on its back, side, or stomach on the lounger. The baby was found unresponsive and not breathing on their side or on their stomach.
The acting Chairman Robert S. Adler has given a statement that the products are being recalled now because “these Boppy lounger products are simply too risky to remain on the market.” Had this been recognized when the product was designed or at least after the first reported incident, lives may have been saved.
