Product Recall Alert: DaVinci Bailey Bassinet

Product Recall Alert: DaVinci Bailey Bassinet

Our name says it all – we are dedicated to the safety of children. We want the very best for our readers. But let’s face it: it can be tough to keep kids out of trouble sometimes. They’re curious, adventurous and determined. We spend our days locking cabinets and securing toilet lids shut. When we go to bed, we want to be absolutely confident that our child’s sleep environment is completely safe. 

We’ve talked about your child’s sleep environment a lot in the past, addressing topics like crib bumper pads, secondhand high chairs, the risk of SIDS and more. As a parent or caregiver, you do everything you possibly can to keep them safe. That is why it is unfortunately when a trusted company has to recall an item. Sadly, DaVinci has had to do just that this week. The baby furniture company has recalled its Bailey bassinets.

Why was this item recalled?

These particular DaVinci bassinets presented themselves to be a fall hazard for babies. In all, 19 injuries were reported.  As it turns out, the support legs on this item for infants can break, presenting a potentially serious falling hazard. The wooden bassinets in question was sold in four colors – gray, espresso, natural and white – all of which are part of the recall.

What to Do if You Have a DaVinci Bailey Bassinet

If you own one of these bassinets, you may receive a call from DaVinci directly. No matter what, owners should remove the product's legs right away. Since the legs are the reason behind this recall, removing them will help to temporarily eliminate a major part of the problem. In this case, you can briefly use the bassinet on any safe surface. However, ideally you should find an alternate safe sleeping space for your baby while you wait for a replacement item.
