I am reporting my concern regarding the Venice Child® California Dreaming Foldable Bedside Bassinet. The bassinet is not levelled (photo Provided) which creates a lateral tilt, that increases risk for child to slide to the edges of the bassinet, which could lead to suffocation. Other customers have expressed their concern on buybuybaby.com under the review section (screen shot provided).
I woke up to find my 4 day old newborn on his side and his face against of the side of the bassinet.
I believe this product is designed to decrease safety and increase the risk of SIDS. This product has a lateral tilt that enables a newborn to 1) roll onto his/her side and 2) slide to the edge of bassinet. These two involuntary actions increases the risk of airway compression, suffocation, and even death. This product is not aligned to general bassinet safety precautions as outlined by American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), CDC, Maternal and Child Health Bureau, or the National Institutes of Health.
