The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is proposing a complete ban on inclined baby sleepers.
That’s after the popular product has been implicated in dozens of infant deaths nationwide.

A number of consumer and child safety groups supported the announcement, but the proposed ban still needs to be approved by the full commission.
