3 Cribs Recalled in the Wake of the Fisher-Price Rock ‘n Play Sleeper RecallJanuary 16, 2020
Since April 2019, millions of inclined cribs have been recalled in the U.S. These recalls were issued in the wake of reports that:
- The Fisher-Price Rock ‘n Play Sleeper had been linked to at least 32 infant deaths and hundreds of injuries.
- The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) deemed the Sleeper to be against long-standing guidelines for safe infant sleeping.
- Other cribs on the market had a similar and risky inclined design as the Fisher-Price Rock ‘n Play Sleeper.
In addition to the nearly 5 million Fisher-Price Rock ‘n Play Sleeper cribs that have been recalled, about 789,000 other inclined cribs have been pulled off the U.S. market. Here’s a closer look at why—and exactly which cribs have been recalled.
Brief Background on the Inclined Crib Recalls
As pediatricians with the AAP have pointed out, the design of inclined cribs prevents infants from lying flat on their backs, as established baby sleeping safety guidelines dictate. The inclined position can result in neck injuries and even suffocation if infants’ heads roll into dangerous positions and/or cut off their airways.
Along with these risks, inclined cribs, like the Fisher-Price Rock ‘n Play Sleeper, usually have features, like:
- Steep sides, which babies can dangerously roll up against
- Loose restraints, which can let babies roll over onto their stomachs
- Attached pillow headrests, which can suffocate babies if they roll over in the crib.
Following the Fisher-Price Rock ‘n Play Sleeper recall, here are three other inclined cribs that have been the target of recalls.
Inclined Crib Recall #1: The Rocking Sleepers Recall
Exactly two weeks after the Rock ‘n Play Sleeper recall, 694,000 Rocking Sleepers were recalled in the U.S. Made by Kids II, the Rocking Sleepers have been linked to at least 5 infant deaths.

- Ingenuity Rock N’ Soothe Sleeper
- Automatic Rock ‘N Soothe Sleeper

Inclined Crib Recall #2: The Ultra-Lite Day & Night Play Yards Recall
On June 27, 2019, Fischer-Price inclined cribs were, again, the subject of a national recall. This one involved about 71,000 inclined sleeper accessories that:
- Were sold with all Ultra-Lite Day & Night Play Yards, a portable play yard with a changing station and an inclined sleeper
- Had model numbers CBV60, CHP86, CHR06, CJK24, and DJD11, with the model number printed on the back of the inclined sleeper pad
