You know what totally clashes with $200 baby Gucci sneakers? Infant skull fractures. Which is apparently what happened to 21 babies who fell from the very popular Bumbo infant seat—so the company is doing a voluntary recall.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission says that babies can "maneuver out of or fall from the Bumbo seat, posing a risk of serious injuries... CPSC and Bumbo International know of at least 50 incidents after the October 2007 voluntary recall in which babies fell from a Bumbo seat while it was being used on a raised surface. Nineteen of those incidents included reports of skull fractures. CPSC and Bumbo International are aware of an additional 34 post-recall reports of infants who fell out or maneuvered out of a Bumbo seat used on the floor or at an unknown elevation, resulting in injury. Two of these incidents involved reports of skull fractures, while others reported bumps, bruises and other minor injuries."
What does the recall entail? Consumers should not use the seat—which is made of low-density foam—until they get a "free repair kit, which includes: a restraint belt with a warning label, installation instructions, safe use instructions and a new warning sticker. The belt should always be used when a child is placed in the seat." Bumbo has even created a video—parents/caregivers, never leave the baby unsupervised in the Bumbo!
