Infant Suffocation Deaths Prompt Recall of Amby Baby Hammock Motion Beds

About 24,000 Amby Baby Motion Beds were recalled due to two infant suffocation deaths. 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.

The Amby Baby Motion Bed consists of a steel frame and a fabric hammock which are connected by a large spring and metal crossbar. There is only one model of the hammock available which can be identified by a label sewn onto the hammock stating: "Amby - Babies Love It, Naturally."

The Motion Beds were sold online at and other Internet retailers from January 2003 through October 2009 for about $250.

Consumers should immediately stop using the Amby Baby motion beds/hammocks and contact Amby Baby USA for a free repair kit. Parents and caregivers are urged to find an alternative, safe sleeping environment for their baby.

For additional information, contact Amby Baby USA toll-free at (866) 544-9721 between 9 a.m. and 5p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit the firm's Web site at
