Death spurs recall of 220,000 infant travel beds - Yahoo! News
That's really sad, but I hate when what is essentially user error scares people away from good products. We have a PeaPod and I actually can't even imagine how it could suffocate a baby as described. Unless his twin sister's position trapped him in a really awkward way, which isn't the bed's fault. Hm.
Ugh. We have this too. So basically they might not have used the product correctly. Heck, we didn't even use the mattress most of the time because it was placed on plush carpet.
I think Erin has one.
That's a very sad but ridiculous reason to recall the product. They're such fabulous little contraptions and I have no intention of discontinuing its use. I happen to use it properly.
ETA: We didn't start using ours until Teagan was closer to 10 months. I don't think she would have been OK with using it prior to that because she so rarely slept anywhere but on me or maaaaybe in her crib for naps.
We used ours for the first time at 6 months on a camping trip, but I still feel like it was completely safe. And wonderful, actually, because she laid in it awake while we were sitting around camp, too, and it kept her bug-free without any sprays or lotions necessary
Nevermind the mattress being used improperly, they also put TWO babies in it at once! A huge no-no! I can't help but feel like multiple user errors = personal tragedy, not reason to recall an entire product.
