The deaths of seven infants in recent months have been linked to popular pillow-like baby products made by Boppy according to a new report that comes less than a year after a federal product safety watchdog warned against their misuse.
Boppy infant loungers and nursing pillows have become staple items for many homes and child care facilities where babies are present. While such products are not intended to be used as a place for babies to sleep, investigators believe the deaths could be attributed to babies sleeping on the products while unattended and then rolling over and suffocating.
Last October, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) warned parents of the dangers of allowing babies to sleep on pillow-like products such as those made by Boppy, after finding a possible link to infant deaths due to the purported misuse.
