Breaking news: Peapod travel crib recall

Just yesterday, the CPSC and KidCo Inc. recalled all 220,000 of their Peapod travel cribs that have been sold since 2005. We were so sad to hear that the recall was due to a possible infant death (though the cause is unknown), and others being trapped and distressed–however these occurred in some cases due to users placing the mattress on the floor of the tent and not in the pocket as the directions specify. KidCo Inc. is offering a kit so parents who own a Peapod travel beds and Peapod Plus travel beds can fix them, making the cribs safe...

Breaking news: Peg Perego stroller recall

If you bought a Peg Perego stroller between January 2004 and September 2010, you’ll want to check to be sure it’s not one of the 223,000 strollers that are only just now being recalled after an infant died in 2004. Little ones, particularly those under 12 months old, can pass between the seat and the tray and can get their heads stuck.  The specific recalled strollers are the older Venezio and Pliko-P3 models that have a child tray with a single cup holder, not the bumper bar. To be certain if yours is on the list, check the CPSC information...

Breaking news: BOB stroller recall

The CPSC action du jour is a BOB stroller recall affecting nearly 500,000 single and double strollers sold in the US and Canada. Evidently the backing behind the company logo on the stroller canopy can detach, and babies, particularly those in infant seats, can reach it and put it in their mouths. While of course choking hazards can be quite serious, fortunately no children have been hurt. If you own a BOB stroller (a very good one, in our estimation), the solution, according to the CPSC is simply to remove the embroidery backing patch from the canopy (visit www.bobnotices.com...

Breaking News: IKEA Crib Recall

The CPSC issued a recall of IKEA SNIGLAR cribs in the US and Canada, because the four bolts that secure the mattress support may not be long enough. Check your crib and see if the mattress support bolts extend through the nut. If so, you’re fine. If not, the mattress can detach and collapse. No injuries have been reported so don’t panic. Just find the baby somewhere to sleep until you can get a repair kit–which probably consists of four longer bolts. Find full info at the CPSC website. If you need a repair kit for your IKEA Sniglar...

If you mamas are owners of the Graco Quattro or MetroLite strollers that was bought before November 2007, check the serial numbers because they’ve been voluntarily recalled by Graco and the CPSC.

Breaking news – CPSC votes to ban sale of all drop side cribs

With the recent slew of crib recalls, and now Pottery Barn Kids voluntarily recalling 82,000 drop side cribs today, it seems that the CPSC has had enough, so much so that they voted unanimously to ban the sale of drop side cribs in the United States. The issue with drop-side cribs is not a new one, mostly due to poorly constructed and installed sides on specific brands and models coming loose and babies getting dangerously and sometimes fatally trapped. However, this new ban now applies to all brands selling this type of crib. So, once again, check your cribs,...
