Safety Requirements Recommended for Nursing Pillows After Dozens of Infant Deaths

An NBC News investigation recently found that at least 162 babies have died in incidents involving nursing pillows since 2007. Most of the infants died after they were placed to sleep on or with the pillows.

Just two weeks after the investigation was published, Consumer Product Safety Commission staff recommended the first federal requirements to make nursing pillows safer. Enclosed is more information on their findings and recommendations.

The staff recommended requiring nursing pillows to be “sufficiently firm that the product is unlikely to conform to an infant’s face,” to reduce the likelihood of babies’ suffocating. The staff also recommended that the U-shaped pillows have openings wide enough to avoid restricting infants’ head movements, which could cut off airflow.

“Because infants frequently fall asleep during or after feeding, nursing pillows are foreseeably misused for infant sleep, which creates a potential hazard for the infant,” according to the staff’s draft proposal. 

The CPSC staff also proposed requiring prominent labels warning caregivers about the product’s hazards. Most nursing pillows already have warning tags that caution against using the products for sleep or leaving infants unsupervised on them, but they should be more visible and more difficult to remove, unlike the hanging warning tags currently attached to many nursing pillows, the draft proposal said.

In addition, the staff recommended that nursing pillows not include straps to secure babies, which could lead parents to believe it’s safe to leave infants alone in the products.

The CPSC staff cited 154 deaths involving nursing pillows from 2010 to 2022, including deaths caused by suffocation, asphyxia and sudden infant death syndrome. In 2020, the most recent year for which the agency had complete data, 38 deaths were associated with nursing pillows, the CPSC said. 

Nursing pillows are a common staple on baby registries, with an estimated 1.34 million sold annually in the U.S. The horseshoe-shaped pillows can help position infants so they get the correct latch as they nurse — and they are marketed as essential tools for reducing parents’ neck and shoulder strain as they breastfeed or bottle-feed their babies.

If your family has been afflicted by a nursing pillow without sufficient labeling or safety information, please call the experts at Inserra Kelley Sewell today for a free consultation.

2023 Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month

May has been designated as Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month, an important initiative dedicated to safeguarding the well-being of everyone who rides a motorcycle and all those who share our country’s roads. 

As we approach the summer season and embark on road trips, it becomes vital for all drivers to be aware of and considerate towards those on two wheels who may occupy their blind spots. While motorcyclists possess the same rights and deserve the same consideration as drivers of four-wheeled vehicles, motorcycles constitute a minority on the road.

Ensuring the safety of motorcyclists is a shared responsibility. Statistics reveal that in collisions involving motorcycles and four-wheeled vehicles, it is often the driver of the non-motorcycle vehicle who fails to yield the right of way to the motorcyclist.

There are several common factors that contribute to the discounting of motorcycles on the road. Recognizing and addressing these factors can help prevent future motorcycle fatalities and serious injuries:

  • Motorcycles are relatively smaller in size compared to other vehicles
  • Drivers sometimes fail to anticipate the movements of motorcycles
  • Motorists’ view of motorcyclists may be obstructed by blind spots in their own vehicles or the presence of other vehicles
  • Drivers may become distracted while operating their vehicles

By being mindful of these everyday circumstances, we can actively contribute to the safety of motorcyclists on the road and help reduce accidents. Join Inserra Kelley Sewell in prioritizing motorcycle safety and a harmonious coexistence among all road users.

5 Tips for National Bicycle Safety Month

Bicycling offers numerous health benefits that contribute to overall well-being, including improved physical fitness, cardiovascular health, mental well-being, joint mobility, weight management, and more. 

This enjoyable pastime can also result in injury, which is why it’s so important to take precautions to protect yourself and others. 

In recognition of National Bicycle Safety Month, here are 5 tips to stay safe while cycling. 

  1. Always wear a properly fitting bicycle helmet when on a bicycle. This helps prevent serious head injuries in case of a fall or collision. 
  2. Follow traffic rules. Bicyclists should obey the same traffic laws as motorists. Ride in the same direction as traffic, use hand signals to indicate turns, and obey traffic signals and signs. 
  3. Be mindful of pedestrians. Yield to them when necessary, announce your presence, and use designated bike lanes whenever available.
  4. Enhance your visibility by wearing bright, reflective clothing and equipping your ride with lights and reflectors. 
  5. Ride predictably and defensively. Ride in a predictable manner to help motorists anticipate your movements, be aware of your surroundings at all times, and anticipate potential hazards.

Bonus Tip: get regular maintenance! Ensure your bicycle is in good working condition by conducting regular maintenance checks. Check your brakes, tires, and gears before each ride. Properly inflated tires with good tread provide better control and reduce the risk of accidents.

Bicycle safety is paramount. By following these tips, you can significantly reduce the risk of accidents and enjoy a safe and enjoyable cycling experience.

Peloton Recalls 2.2 Million Exercise Bikes Due to Safety Hazard

Peloton is issuing a recall for 2 million exercise bicycles due to safety concerns, marking the second major recall faced by the fitness company.

According to an announcement from the Consumer Product Safety Commission on Thursday, the seat post of the bikes has the potential to break while in use, posing a risk of falls and injuries to users.

The CPSC reported that Peloton has already received 35 complaints of the seat post breaking and detaching from the bike during usage. Among these incidents, 13 reports included injuries such as fractured wrists, lacerations, and bruises.

In response, the CPSC advised consumers to immediately stop using the recalled exercise bikes and to contact Peloton for a free repair. Peloton is offering customers a complimentary seat post that can be self-installed.

This is not the first large-scale recall faced by Peloton. In May 2021, the company was compelled to recall 125,000 Tread+ treadmills following the tragic death of a child and other safety issues associated with the machines.

Affected Model
The affected model is Peloton Bikes Model PL01. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled exercise bikes and contact Peloton for a free repair. Peloton is offering consumers a free seat post that can be self-installed.

If you or someone you know has been injured by a Peloton product, please call the experts at Inserra Kelley Sewell today for a free consultation.
