Infant rocking sleepers from multiple brands are being recalled weeks after Fisher-Price

Just two weeks after the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced all models of the Fisher-Price Rock 'n Play sleeper have been recalled, the CPSC has announced another recall of inclined infant sleepers.

Kids II has voluntarily recalled nearly 694,000 of its Rocking Sleepers after five infants died in the sleepers. Some of the infants "rolled from their back to their stomach while unrestrained," the CPSC notes

The sleepers were sold between March 2012 and April 2019 at major retailers including Walmart, Target and Toys "R" Us for between $40 and $80. The sleepers were sold under multiple brand names, including: Bright Starts, Ingenuity, DreamComfort, Taggies and Disney Baby.

If you have one of these rocking sleeper, stop using it and contact Kids II for a refund or voucher.

"At Kids II, our number one priority is the safety and well-being of the families who love our brands and use our products," the company notes in a statement emailed to Motherly and posted on Facebook. "We are devastated by the loss of any child, and our hearts go out to the families affected. We are committed to proactively informing parents on safe sleep habits for all of our sleep products."

The recall comes after an investigation by Consumer Reports amid growing frustration from parents who say their children sleep best in inclined sleepers. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, the safest place for a baby to sleep is "on his or her back on a firm sleep surface such as a crib or bassinet with a tight-fitting sheet."

Kids II tells Motherly the company has been "actively working with the CPSC to understand and address this issue, we believe there is inconsistency in standards on products marketed for inclined sleep. This must be addressed industry-wide, and we will have an active voice in these discussions to ensure safe sleep solutions."

Again, if you have one of these sleepers, the company and the CPSC ask that you stop using it and contact Kids II at 1-866-869-7954 8:00 or visit and click on "IMPORTANT RECALL INFORMATION" (at the top of the website).

10 must-have registry items that will change your life, mama

The baby gear heavy hitters that should be top of your list

Calling all mamas-to-be! It's a fundamental truth of (impending) motherhood that your prepping-for-baby To Do list can feel a mile long, but really the best way to feel organized is to sort out the most important item at the top of your list: your registry. Sure the items you choose to include will end up running the gamut from nice-to-haves to absolutely essential game-changers, but mamas in the know quickly learn one thing: Not all baby gear is created equal.

So while you can and should pepper your registry with adorable inclusions that aren't necessarily can't-live-withouts (go ahead, add 'em!), you should make sure you're ticking the boxes on those pieces of baby gear that can be absolute life savers once you're in full-blown mama mode. From car seats to bouncers and playmats, your play and travel gear will be some of the most obvious important items on your list, but so can unexpected things, like a super comfy baby carrier and a snooze-inducing white noise machine. So to help you sort through the must-have options, we turned to the holy grail of motherhood that is buybuy BABY and handpicked 10 of the very best essential pieces that will change your life, we promise.

Earth Mama: Effective, natural herbal care for mamas and babies

Founded and grown in her own garage in 2002, Earth Mama started as an operation of one, creating salves, tinctures, teas and soaps with homegrown herbs. With a deep desire to bring the healing powers of nature that have been relied on for thousands of years to as many mamas as possible, Melinda Olson's formulas quickly grew into Earth Mama Organics. Since then, the brand has remained committed to manufacturing clean, safe and effective herbal solutions for the entire journey of motherhood, including pregnancy, breastfeeding and baby care, and even the loss of a baby.

Bravado Designs: Soothing sounds for a good night's sleep

With 28 years of serving pregnant and postpartum mamas under their belt, Bravado Designs is a true authority on the needs of changing bodies. It's true that we have them to thank for rescuing us from the uncomfortable and frumpy designs our own moms had to live with. Launched in Canada by two young mamas, they designed the first prototypes with extra leopard print fabric certain that a better bra was possible. Throughout the years they've maintained their commitment to ethical manufacturing while creating long-lasting products that truly work.

The Sill: Instagram-ready potted plants

We've long admired this female-founded brand and the brilliant mind behind it, Eliza Blank. (She even joined Motherly co-founder Liz Tenety on and episode of The Motherly Podcast!) The mission behind the business was simple: To make the process of bringing plants into your home as easy as possible, and as wonderful as the plant themselves. With their in-house, exclusively designed minimalist planters, the end result makes plant parenthood just a few clicks away.

The 6 biggest lies I believed before having kids

Just about all of us had set assumptions about raising kids before we became parents ourselves.

Just about all of us had set assumptions about raising kids before we became parents ourselves. Some of these ideas might have been based on our own ideas of how we would absolutely do things differently than everyone else. Others, we believed what everyone else told us would happen would apply to our littles, too. But, that's not always the case, mama.

Below are six of the biggest lies I believed before having kids—and the reality of what actually happened for me.

1. Put your baby down drowsy, but awake
