Government issues warning about infant Rock 'N Play deaths

- The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Fisher-Price are warning parents to stop using a Rock 'N Play if their child is old enough to roll over after several deaths have been reported.

At least 10 deaths have been reported since 2015.

Because deaths are still happening, the CPSC and Fisher Price are recommending that the Rock 'N Play stop being used by three months of age, or as soon as the infant can rollover.

Previously, Fisher-Price warned consumers to discontinue the product due to the possible dangers of infants rolling over and falling. According to medical literature, infants typically begin rollover behaviors at 3 months. If unrestrained, the infants can roll from their back to their stomach or side and suffocate.

Koskinen made 28 saves and Connor McDavid tied a career best with his 41st goal for Edmonton. "I don't know", McDavid replied. It was his 25th goal. "Tonight was a ideal game, for me, going down the stretch", Golden Knights coach Gerard Gallant said.

The product has a harness restraint, but the company said that the deaths showed that people were still using the product after their babies were able to roll over and the infants were not being restrained.

Chuck Scothon, general manager at Fisher-Price, noted that a "child fatality is an unimaginable tragedy" in a statement shared Friday. Generations of parents have trusted us for nearly 90 years to provide safe products for their children.

In addition to these warnings, the CPSC and Fisher Price reminded parents to not add blankets, pillows, stuffed toys or other items to a baby's environment.
