The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recently warned consumers to stop using Momaid Infant Loungers because they present a suffocation risk and fall hazard to infants.

The manufacturer—Zhejian Juster Trading LLC, of China—is not cooperating with the CPSC on this matter and has not issued a product recall.

CPSC Urges Consumers to Stop Using Momaid Infant Loungers

The problem, according to the CPSC, is that the loungers fail to meet the safety requirements of the CPSC’s Infant Sleep Products Rule because they do not have a stand. The lounger also fails to meet the side height, markings and labeling, and instructional literature requirements.

“These failures,” the CPSC states in its release, “create an unsafe sleeping environment for infant.” The loungers also lack a tracking label containing the required information like the date of manufacture.

The loungers were advertised as a “Baby Lounger Portable Infant Co Sleeping Bassinet Newborn Cocoon Snuggle Reversible Nest Bed Travel Crib.” They were sold online at Amazon and other websites for about $55. They came with a pillow and in four different printed fabrics:

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

There is no labeling on the loungers.

Momaid Infant Loungers Don’t Meet Safety Standards

The Infant Sleep Products rule applies to products manufactured on or after June 23, 2022. It establishes a safety standard for infant sleep products—those marketed or intended to provide sleep accommodation for an infant up to 5 months of age, and that are not subject to any of CPSC’s mandatory standards for infant sleep.

The final rule requires that infant sleep products be tested to confirm the seat back/sleep surface angle is 10 degrees or less from horizontal to prevent any suffocation hazards. The rule was passed to help reduce deaths associated with known infant sleep hazards, including sleep surface angles that are greater than 10 degrees from horizontal.

The CPSC urges companies manufacturing infant sleep products to consider stopping the sale of non-compliant products regardless of the date of manufacture.

With the Momaid Infant Loungers, the CPSC urges consumers to immediately stop using them, cut the fabric, and dispose of the fabric and the pillow. Report any incidents involving product injuries or defects to the CPSC at

Unfortunately, since the manufacturer is not cooperating with a recall, there is no remedy available for consumers. Still, the CPSC urges parents and caregivers to stop using these products to keep their infants safe.

Safe Sleep Recommendations for Parents

The CPSC recommends the following when putting infants to sleep:

  • Always place infants on a firm, flat surface in a crib, bassinet, or play yard.
  • Use a fitted sheet only and never add blankets, pillows, padded crib bumpers, or other items to an infant’s sleeping environment.
  • Always place the infant on their back. Infants who fall asleep in an inclined or upright position should be moved to a flat surface.
