Paddling pools potentially deadly for babies, safety regulator warns

Federal safety officials are urging parents and other caregivers to stop using the 5in1 Rocker Bassinets because the infant products pose suffocation, suffocation and fall hazards.

The strollers sold online at and other sites do not meet federal safety standards for baby products and lack required labeling, labeling and instructions, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday in a news release release warning about the products. The walls and their packaging also lack tracking labels required for children’s products, the agency said.

The China-made bassinets were imported by Pleasant Hill, Missouri-based Rev Grace Import, which is not cooperating with the agency and does not offer a remedy to customers, according to the CPSC.

CPSC advises people who own bassinets to take them apart and throw away the pieces.

The green and gray bassinets were listed as a 5-in-1 Rocker Bassinet on the product packaging. The markings “Ya.Ya.Ya, 5IN1UPC Code 09331849600139, 01 Rock Sleeper, 02 Dream Centre, 03 Cozy Seat, 04 Travel Bassinet, 05 Rock & Play, Made in China, and Age 1-36 months” also appear on the packaging, according to the agency.

The warning comes more than a month after the CPSC voted in favor expand protections in the agency’s 2022 Infant Sleep Product Rule to include the provisions of the Safe Sleep for Babies Act. The measure bans crib bumpers — blamed for at least 107 infant deaths between 1990 and 2016 — and prone sleepers like the recalled Fisher-Price Rock n’ Play attached to more than 100 deaths.

Other CPSC Guidance for Parents and Caregivers:

  • The best place for an infant to sleep is on a firm, flat surface in a cradle, crib or playpen
  • Use only a sheet and never add blankets, pillows or padded crib bumps to a baby’s sleeping area.
  • Babies should always be placed on their backs to sleep
  • Infants who fall asleep in an inclined or upright position should be moved to a safe place with a firm, flat surface
