Babysleep positioning devices that were delivered to stores after the death caution.
A number of British retailer have discontinued the sale of baby slumber positioning devices because of concern about their safety." A positioner designed for babies under six month of age should keep a baby in a certain posture during bed. Mothercare, John Lewis, eBay, Boots and Tesco have discontinued the sale, but they are still available from other dealers.
Jenny Ward of Lullaby added: "The age-old issue that hasn't really change is: How do I get my baby to go to bed? "If there is one thing that says, "This will help your baby sleep," then of course it is something some people want to know more about. "But she said that the Trust recommended a solid, shallow, waterproof mattress, in a clear bed free of cushions, toys, pushrods and sleepers, because the proof shows that this reduced the chance of SIDS.
Trusts do not advise the use of a wedge or bed positioner, regardless of other possible advantages. For example, if a parent is concerned about the low levelhead syndrome of a baby who sleeps on his or her back, there are technologies that can be used - such as monitored waking belly hours - that do not raise the chance of SIDS.
On Wednesday, the US Food and Drug Administration issued a declaration stating that the objects - often referred to as "nests" or "anti-roll" goods - suffocated some infants after they rolled from their sides to their bellies. He said that the two most frequent kinds of sleeping positions have elevated braces or cushions (called "pillows") fixed to either side of a blanket, or a chock to lift a baby's skull.
Seven years ago, the FDA launched its first ever security alert, saying, "Given the choking hazard and the absence of proof of any benefit, we are issuing a warnings to consumer no longer to use these drugs. "Producers, distributors as well as retail traders shall be required to verify that the devices comply with the applicable security standards and to be able to demonstrate this on request before the device is placed on the market.
This came with a caution that it should not be used once a baby was able to turn itself around. Tesco, which has been selling sleeping positions on its website through a third person, said: "As a precaution, we have deleted these items from our website. Lewis, who had a sleeping postman to sell, the Cocoonababy sleeping postman, also said he took it off as a "precaution".
Said the retail store said it would also remove the cocoonababy nest, a sleeping capsule, while waiting for "further guidance and appeasement from the supplier". An eBay spokesperson said the site would prohibit the selling of the product and added: "Boots said it will stop selling all sleeping positioning equipment "while we continue to work with our suppliers".
However, sleeping posters are still available on other sites, such as Amazon, which said they wouldn't comment on the problem. Jo Jo Maman Bebe's spokesperson said that it still sells the product, but "the problem is urgently investigated with our suppliers". The Lullaby Trust said that it is not necessary to use any kind of gear or curled covers to keep a baby in a certain posture unless the parent has been instructed by a doctor to do so for a particular medicinal state.
She added: "Babies are at higher risks for SIDS if they have their faces capped, and some objects added to a child's bed can raise the risks of headgear and also accident risks. "It is recommended that although proof of single product is not available everywhere, there is no need for parental concern and that they follow scientific, safe sleeping guidelines".
