Last week we first told you about the government’s warning about the Fisher-Price baby sleeper that was linked to the death of a reported 10 infants. 

Now, Consumer Reports says there have been more deaths than previously reported by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. 

An investigation by Consumer Reports revealed that Fisher-Price has confirmed they are aware of 32 infant fatalities associated with the Rock ‘n Play Sleeper since it first hit the market in 2009. 

The review also reportedly found fatalities involving children younger than three months. 

CPSC had reported last week that all fo the 10 infant deaths were of babies ages three months or older. 

According to officials, the deaths happened when the infants rolled from their back onto their stomach or side. 

Consumer Reports advised parents to stop using infant-inclined sleep products altogether. 

At last check, the product has not been recalled by Fisher-Price and has only prompted warnings from the company and the CPSC.
