Little Sleepies, a popular brand known for its super-soft bamboo baby blankets and bibs, has voluntarily recalled nearly 500,000 products due to a potential choking hazard, the Consumer Product Safety Commission announced this week.
The recall involves two styles of baby bibs – Terry Bib and Satin Bib – as well as the Satin Potato Sack baby blanket. The bibs and blankets contain small metal snaps that could detach and pose a choking risk to young children. The products were sold online through Little Sleepies’ website, Amazon, and other online retailers from November 2020 through September 2022.
Little Sleepies is a family-owned business founded in 2017 that quickly became a favorite among parents for its ultra-soft, breathable bamboo fabrics. The company’s products have gained a loyal following especially for their use in the baby sleep training community.
The recall was initiated after Little Sleepies received two reports of snaps detaching from the bibs. No injuries have been reported so far.
Consumers are advised to immediately stop using the recalled bibs and blankets and contact Little Sleepies for a full refund. The company can be reached online, by email or by phone at 855-498-6942.
Recalls of baby products have become increasingly common in recent years, as parents and companies work to identify potential hazards. In 2022 alone, more than 2 million cradles, strollers, infant carriers and other baby items have been recalled due to risks of entrapment, falls and choking. With this latest recall, Little Sleepies joins dozens of other brands working to pull unsafe products from the market and prevent infant injuries.
For any parents concerned about the safety of Little Sleepies blankets or bibs, be sure to check the manufacture dates and lot codes to determine if your items are affected. The full details on identifying recalled products are available on the Little Sleepies website and the Consumer Product Safety Commission website.
