Most of the bassinet in the market is designed by following the safety standards set by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) [1] and Federal Register Gov [2] to provide a safe sleeping environment for newborns.

However, some brands even try to get a certificate from third parties.

Such as a Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA) [3], a Greenguard [4], or an American Society for Testing and Materials (ATSM) [5] to show how safe their product is to gain customer trust.

Bassinet Recall

But still, sometimes companies recall their bassinets, even the top-notch brands like Graco Baby, Fisher Piece, Delta Children, Dream On Me, Summer Infant, Evenflo, etc.

But why did they recall their bassinet?

The reason is CPSC and Comsumerreport.org [6], who are continuously working to keep testing bassinet to evaluate, whether they are safe or not for infants to reduce the risk of SIDS.

Because of them, the incidence of SIDS has dropped from 103 to 35 babies per 100,000 births, and clearly defined bassinet rules have a lot to do with this positive trend.

Now the question is, what should you have to do if the manufacturer recalls their bassinet? How can you contact the companies & claim your refund or replacement?

Everything you want to know will be answered in this guide, along with all the necessary information you need. But before that, let’s quickly check which bassinet has been recalled recently.

What Bassinets Are Recalled, Recently?

The last bassinet that CPSC recalled was on August 15, 2022. The product was 4moms mamaroo Baby Swing sleeper and 4mom mamma oo rockaroo Baby Rockers. This is because a baby can get entangled in the straps, posing a strangulation hazard.

How To Claim Refunds or Replacements for Bassinet?

The first step to do that is to get informed and collect the necessary information. After that, contact the company directly by Phone (can also prefer email) to register a call for the recalled bassinet.

Getting a repair and replacement one after a recall is time-consuming. I personally suggest refunding so you can buy the new one ASAP.

Step #1 Gether Product Details:-

The first step to do that is to get informed and collect the necessary information. After that, contact the company directly by Phone (you can also prefer email) to register a call log for the recalled bassinet.

Getting a repair and replacement one after a recall is time-consuming. I personally suggest refunding so you can buy the new one ASAP.

Step #2 Contact The Manufacturer:-

The next step is to contact the company. You can ask for a full refund, Voucher, or a replacement ( upper model ) if you feel comfortable with that.

Most good companies are more than willing to refund or replace without any additional charges since they are also committed to safety and security needs.

You can contact the manufacturer through the contact details available on their website or by connecting to the distributor from whom you made the initial purchase.

 Final Words

Not all recalls mean manufacturers provide the new or replace the product; in some cases, they fix or change the hazardous parts for infants to lower the cost.

Even after you have done your research and due diligence in finding a bassinet for your baby, it is always possible that it might end up being a recalled item in the future.

So, Parents need to keep researching & remain up-to-date on the developments regarding babies’ safety.

It is hard to keep tabs on everything we buy nowadays, but purchasing something as long-lasting is crucial to a baby’s health.

Some FAQ:-

Q1: How Did Rock And Play Cause Death?

Most of the rock n play in the market had more than 10 degrees of incline angle. This higher angle falls the baby’s head forward, blocks the airflow, and increases the risk of suffocation. That’s why most of the incline rock n play sleeper was recalled in 2019 by CPSC.

Q2: How Do I Know If My Bassinet Is Safe?

If your bassinet is not on the bassinet recall list and you purchased JPMA, Greenguard, or ATSM certified bassinet, and you have assembled it properly by following the manual guide, that means your bassinet is safe.

Q3: Is It Safe To Use An Old Bassinet?

Partially yes, if your bassinet is in good condition, doesn’t have any loose parts, has no chance of the bassinet collapsing when you place the baby in it, and it’s properly clean for healthy sleep, then the use of an old bassinet is safe.

Q4: Why Are Inclined Sleepers Banned?

Incline sleeper is banned because it blocks the airflow when an infant sleeps or lays in it. As per the latest research by the American association of paediatrics (APP), when infants sleep more than 10 degrees on an inclined surface, their heads can fall forward & increase the risk of suffocation.
