MamaLittleHelper Baby Hammocks Recalled

baby recallThe U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with MamaLittleHelper, today announced a voluntary recall of MamaLittleHelper Baby Hammocks.

The side-to-side shifting or tilting of the hammock can cause the infant to roll and become entrapped or wedged against the hammock’s fabric and/or mattress pad, resulting in a suffocation hazard.

This recall includes MamaLittleHelper Hammocks with model numbers 1010, 1020 and BL222. They have a steel frame and a fabric hammock with a mattress which are connected by a large spring, safety rope and a metal hanger. Model BL222 has a computerized rocker device. “MamaLittleHelper” is printed on a label sewn onto the hammock models 1010 and 1020. Model BL222 does not have a label.

Sold exclusively: Online at www.mamalittlehelper.com from May 2008 through February 2010 for between $100 and $230.

Parents should immediately stop using the hammocks. Contact MamaLittleHelper to receive a free repair kit for hammock models 1010 and 1020. Consumers who own model BL222 should return the hammock to Mama’s Little Helper in exchange for a new hammock. There is no repair available for model BL222.
