Investigation into Deaths and Injuries Caused by Fisher-Price’s 4-in-1 Rock 'n Glide Soother and 2-in-1 Soothe ‘n Play Glider

Calcaterra Pollack LLP is investigating Fisher-Price’s 4-in-1 Rock ‘n Glide Soother and 2-in-1 Soothe ‘n Play Glider. Both products were recalled on June 3, 2021 due to infants placed in the products suffocating. So far, there have been four reported cases of infants dying in the 4-in-1 Rock ‘n Glide Soother. The infants were placed on their backs and later found on their stomachs.

The 4-in-1 Rock ‘n Glide Soother and 2-in-1 Soothe ‘n Play Glider were sold at stores nationwide and online, including Walmart and Target stores and Amazon.com, between January 2014 and December 2020 and November 2018 to May 2021, respectively. Approximately 120,000 4-in-1 Rock ‘n Glide Soothers and 55,000 2-in-1 Soothe ‘n Play Gliders were sold in the U.S – putting thousands of infants at risk of injury and death.

We believe these products are dangerous. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends babies sleep on their back on a firm, soft surface free of padding or restraints. However, both products have soft padding, place babies on an incline and contain a harness, all of which places babies at risk of suffocation or asphyxiation.

If your child was injured by, or died in, the 4-in-1 Rock ‘n Glide Soother or the 2-in-1 Soothe ‘n Play Glider, we urge you to email or call:

Calcaterra Pollack LLP has particular expertise in pursuing justice for infants allegedly harmed by unsafe children’s products. The Firm, together with Blank Rome LLP, currently represents seven families suing Fisher-Price and Mattel for their infants’ deaths in the recalled Rock ‘n Play Sleeper. Over 4.7 million Rock ‘n Play Sleepers were sold between 2009 and April 2019, when it was finally recalled after over 90 reported deaths. As the lawsuits brought by Calcaterra Pollack LLP and Blank Rome LLP allege, the Rock ‘n Play Sleeper was unsafe because it positioned infants at a 30-degree incline on a padded fabric surface, increasing infants’ risk of suffocation or asphyxiation. These lawsuits are pending in the California Supreme Court, Los Angeles County. Read more about the Rock ‘n Play lawsuits here.
