Attention parents: There’s been a recall on a popular baby bassinet

Childcare Snuggle Time Co-Sleeping Bassinet, sold exclusively at Baby Bunting, have issued a warning to parents who may have purchased the model to check if their model’s mattress base leans slightly to the left.

If this is the case, infants may roll on to their stomachs in their sleep which breaches safe sleep guidelines to prevent SIDS.

The details

Model number: 036310-356

Design: Storm Cloud

Barcode number: 9314824024786

The product was sold at Baby Bunting between May 2017 and September 2018.

The statement says there have been NO reports of injury, but they urge consumers to test their unit. They also note not all units are impacted, so it is vital that you assess.

How to check your bassinet

1. Ensure the Bedside Sleeper is on an even and level floor

2. Remove the mattress from the bedside sleeper

3. Remove the base board and mattress from the mattress cover

4. Place the base board back to the position inside the sleeper where the mattress would usually lie

5. Place a round object (e.g. a pen, a small ball) in the middle of the base board and observe whether it rolls freely to one side. Alternatively, use a spirit level if you have one.

If you believe your product is not level you can contact the distributor and receive a replacement mattress cover to ensure the base lays flat, as intended.

For more information customers can contact the distributor by phoning 1800 656 743 Mon-Fri 8:30am-6:30pm or via email at: [email protected]
