Health Canada advises on some Fisher-Price rockers

Health Canada is advising parents to not allow their infants to fall asleep in Fisher-Price Newborn-to-Toddler and Infant-to-Toddler Rockers.
The incline of these products is dangerous to a baby while sleeping, as it can cause suffocation. Between 2009 and 2021, there have been at least 13 deaths reported to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission which occurred when babies fell asleep in the Fisher-Price rockers.

They remind parents and caregivers that the devices should not be used for babies to sleep and that babies should never be unsupervised or unrestrained while using these rockers.

If your baby falls asleep in this product, move them to a safe surface intended for sleeping, such as a crib, cradle, or bassinet.

There have been no reported incidents in Canada, however Health Canada adds that the safest place for a baby to sleep is on their back on a firm surface intended for sleep.

Products designed for play should not be used for sleep.
