From the BBC News:

“Some UK retailers have stopped selling baby sleep positioners amid concerns over their safety.

A US health regulator said they “can cause suffocation that can lead to death” and have been linked to 12 infant deaths in the US.

The positioners, aimed at infants under six months, are intended to keep a baby in a specific position while sleeping.

Mothercare, John Lewis, eBay and Tesco have stopped selling them, but they are still available from other retailers.

The Lullaby Trust, a cot death charity which advises the NHS, told BBC News that there are hundreds of baby sleep products on the market – and “parents assume that if something is for sale, it is safe to use”.”
