After being placed in the boppy pillow lawyer at least eight children died of suffocation. All of them were placed on their stomachs, backs, stomachs, or sides and then later discovered by their parents on either their stomachs or sides.
Parents have been warned by the CPSC to not use lounger-type products and to only allow babies to rest on flat, firm surfaces such as a crib, bassinet or play yard.

Three Boppy products are affected by the CPSC recall notice:
- Boppy Original Newborn Loungers

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission urged parents not to use affected Boppy products.

What to do if your child was hurt by a boppy lounger
Boppy Loungers were used to protect children from drowning. At least eight children perished.
You may be able to sue the company if your child was injured or killed by the Boppy Lounger’s dangerous design. The Boppy Company won’t compensate you for your losses. You should instead contact an experienced trial lawyer to file a claim against The Boppy Company.
The Case Barnett Law Corporation is able to assist you in filing a personal injury claim. You might be entitled to damages for:
- Hospital bills
- Emotional suffering and pain
- Funeral and burial costs
- Loss of companionship
A personal injury lawsuit can help you get financial compensation. While money cannot replace the life of your child or your trust and security, it can help you to recover. This sends a strong message to those who design and sell dangerous products. Personal injury settlements can be more than just financial. They may also include new policy provisions that ensure no one else is subject to the negative consequences of unsafe products.
