CPSC Warns Consumers to Stop Using Momaid Infant Lounger Due to Suffocation and Fall Risks

The manufacturer of the Momaid infant lounger has refused to issue a recall or provide solutions to customers, according to the CPSC.

Amid continuing concerns about the risk of suffocation and death linked to infant lounger products sold in recent years, federal safety officials are warning parents to stop using Momaid infant loungers, indicating the products do not comply with product design standards and pose a serious risk for infants.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued a Momaid infant lounger warning on June 8, indicating the infant loungers do not meet the minimum side height requirements for infant sleep products and were manufactured without a stand, creating an unsafe sleeping environment in which an infant can suffocate after rolling over, or falling out of the lounger.

According to the warning, the infant cushions are in violation of the federal “Infant Sleep Products rule,” which pertains to products manufactured on or after June 23, 2022. In addition, the products and their packaging were not labeled with required information, including a manufacturing date, and did not include product use instructions, as required.

Despite the suffocation and fall risks the loungers pose to infants, a Momaid infant lounger recall has yet to be announced, as the seller, Zhejiang Juster Trading LLC, has not cooperated with the CPSC and has not offered a remedy to consumers.

While the baby loungers and their packaging are not labelled and may be difficult to identify, they were manufactured in four printed fabric patterns including;

  • Banana Gray Leaf
  • Blue Palm Leaf
  • Mint Lychee Leaf
  • Pink Lychee Leaf

The infant loungers were advertised as “Baby Lounger Portable Infant Co-Sleeping Bassinets” and “Newborn Cocoon Snuggle Reversible Nest Bed Travel Cribs” with a pillow included through online retailers, including www.amazon.com, and retailed for approximately $55.

Consumers should stop using their Momaid infant loungers, cut the fabric to prevent further use, and dispose of them immediately, according to the CPSC. Any product injury or defect incidents can be reported to the CPSC at www.SaferProducts.gov.

Infant Lounger Recalls

Over the last several years, federal safety officials have issued similar infant lounging product recalls and warnings, following reports of infants rolling and falling off of the pillows or infants rolling over and suffocating after becoming trapped against the fabric.

Baby Formula Lawsuits

Premature infants fed Similac or Enfamil cow's milk formula faced increased risk of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) or wrongful death.


The CPSC issued a massive Boppy newborn lounger recall over suffocation hazards impacting over 3.3 million units in September 2021, following reports of at least eight infant suffocation fatalities after they rolled over and became trapped against the fabric. After the recall was issued, the dangerous loungers continued to be sold through online platforms, including Facebook Marketplace, and resulted in the death of two more infants, bringing the total number of deaths linked to the Boppy loungers to 10.

Just last year, officials issued a Podster infant lounger warning in January 2022, stating nearly 200,000 devices pose risks of entrapment and suffocation. The warning was released after at least two infant suffocation deaths were linked to the loungers. Despite the two fatalities, the manufacturer refused to issue a voluntary recall, claiming their products were clearly labeled to warn consumers that they were never intended to be used as infant sleep products and infants were not to be left unattended while using them.

The CPSC reminds parents and caregivers that babies should always be placed on their backs to sleep and the safest sleeping environment for an infant is on a firm, flat surface inside a bassinet, crib or play yard. Babies should not have any items in their sleeping environment, including blankets, pillows, or padded crib bumpers, with the exception of a fitted sheet. Parents should move their infants to a safe sleeping environment with a firm, flat surface if they fall asleep in an upright or inclined position.
