Joint consumer group comments to CPSC on proposed infant bouncer seat standard

We support the staff recommendation to adopt ASTM F2167-15 as well as the strengthening additions to the warning label requirements. Many families and caregivers use infant bouncer seats to position a young infant in a semi-reclined position in many settings throughout the home and to allow the baby’s movement to create soothing motion. The product becomes unstable and unsafe for infants above the recommended developmental stage. Babies that can turn, sit up or pull out of loose restraints can get in positions leading to death or injury.
