Baby Dies in Simplicity Bassinet

Federal consumer safety officials are investigating a bassinet design made by Simplicity after the death of a four-month-old baby in Missouri.

Authorities say the infant slipped out of the side of her bassinet feet first.

She then became trapped with her chest in a 4-inch gap between the railing and the top of the mattress.

The coroner called the death an "accidental" asphyxiation.

The bassinet model is a "Simplicity 4-in-1."

It was not part of the September recall of one-million other baby beds made by Simplicity. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
