Momaid Infant Loungers Pose Safety Hazards for Infants

Momaid Infant Loungers Pose Safety Hazards for Infants

Infant sleepers and loungers have been in the spotlight in the last few years due to a series of tragic incidents involving infants dying or getting injured. In a recent announcement, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued a critical warning to caregivers and parents regarding the immediate discontinuation of the use of Momaid infant loungers. These loungers violate federal safety standards for infant sleep products. Failure to meet these standards poses significant risks of suffocation and fall hazards for infants.

CPSC Cautions the Public Against Momaid Infant Lounges

Described as a safe and cozy environment for babies to lounge and sleep safely, the Momaid infant lounger was sold online at and other websites. The seller, Zhejiang Juster Trading LLC, of China, fashioned the lounger to mimic a mother’s womb to comfort children 0-2 years of age. Additionally, these loungers came with a pillow to strengthen babies’ neck muscles and support them as they learn to sit independently. Caretakers could choose from four printed fabrics: Banana Gray Leaf, Blue Palm Leaf, Mint Lychee Leaf, and Pink Lychee Leaf. However, Momaid infant loungers violate several key safety requirements set forth by the CPSC’s Infant Sleep Products rule. 

One critical safety feature absent in Momaid infant loungers is a stand, compromising their stability and creating a fall hazard for infants. Moreover, these loungers fail to meet the side height, markings and labeling, and instructional literature requirements. These shortcomings collectively contribute to an unsafe sleeping environment for infants.

In addition to the non-compliance issues, the Momaid infant loungers and their packaging lack a tracking label that contains important information, including the date of manufacture. The absence of this label hampers the ability to track and identify potentially hazardous products.

CPSC Recommendations for Momaid Infant Loungers

It is concerning to note that Zhejiang Juster Trading LLC has not cooperated with the CPSC on a recall of the Momaid infant loungers and is not providing any remedies to consumers. Therefore, the CPSC has taken it upon itself to alert parents or caregivers about these potentially dangerous loungers.

To ensure the complete removal of the product, the CPSC advises consumers to stop using the loungers immediately. The agency recommends people cut the fabric and dispose of both the fabric and the pillow securely.

Promoting Safe Sleep Practices

Regardless of the date of manufacture, the CPSC strongly urges firms to halt the sale of non-compliant infant sleep products. Even though the Infant Sleep Products rule primarily applies to products manufactured on or after June 23, 2022.

In light of this situation, the CPSC is reiterating safe sleep practices for infants. Parents and caregivers should adhere to the following CPSC guidelines to prioritize the well-being of their little ones:

  • Provide a firm, flat surface, such as a crib, bassinet, or play yard, for your infant to sleep on.
  • Use fitted sheets. Avoid adding blankets, pillows, padded crib bumpers, or any other items that may pose suffocation risks.
  • Always put infants to sleep on their backs. If they fall asleep in an inclined or upright position, move them to a firm, flat surface.

Infant Sleeper and Lounger Lawsuits

The Momaid infant lounger is not the only sleep device that has come under fire for allegedly putting children in harm’s way. Other products that have been recalled, include the Fisher-Price Rock ‘n Play Sleeper, the Boppy Newborn Lounger, and the Kids2 Rocking Sleeper.

Families have reportedly experienced profound losses due to infant sleepers and loungers. Lawsuits aim to hold manufacturers accountable for allegedly manufacturing devices unsafe for infants. We understand that no amount of compensation can ever fully make amends for what has happened. However, The Lake Law Firm is dedicated to fighting for justice and compensation while providing support and guidance to families affected by infant sleepers or loungers.
