Disney, Eddie Bauer Baby Sleepers Recalled Over Safety Risk

The maker of the Eddie Bauer Slumber and Soothe Rock Bassinet and the Disney Baby Doze and Dream Bassinet is voluntarily recalling these products due to the increasing safety concerns about inclined sleepers. Dorel Juvenile Group USA is recalling about 24,000 sleepers that were sold for about $60 at Target, Kmart, Ross, Marshalls, TJ Maxx, and children’s stores across the United States from November 2014 through February 2017.

This sleeper recall comes just months after Fisher-Price recalled about 4.7 million Rock ’n Play Sleepers after a Consumer Reports investigation warned that dozens of infants had died in the sleepers over the past 10 years.

Dangers of Inclined Baby Sleepers

The American Academy of Pediatrics has warned that products like the Eddie Bauer sleeper and the Disney baby sleeper are dangerous because infants should only be laid down on their backs on a firm, flat mattress. Babies who are left unrestrained in the inclined, padded sleepers may roll onto their sides or stomachs, resulting in suffocation.

About the Recalled Eddie Bauer and Disney Sleepers

Dorel issued the recall alert on July 31, offering a refund to anyone who had purchased:

  • Eddie Bauer Slumber and Soothe Bassinet, model number BT055CSY
  • Disney Baby Doze and Dream Bassinet, model number BT071DHS

Parents can find the model numbers on a label underneath the fabric of the sleeper pad. The inclined sleepers have a soft bottom with cushioned fabric. They are about two feet tall and were designed for sleeping newborns and infants up to 6 months old. The Eddie Bauer sleeper is beige, and the Disney sleeper is purple.

If you have one of the recalled sleepers, call Dorel at 1-877-657-9546 or text Dorel at 812-373-6673 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday. You can also email inclinesleeperrecall@djgusa.com. Dorel will issue you a refund in the form of a $60 voucher.
