BPA issues urgent safety alert for baby self-feeding pillows

The Baby Products Association has been advised by the Office for Product Safety and Standards of an urgent safety alert for baby self-feeding pillows and urges the public to stop using these products immediately and dispose of them safely.

Businesses selling these products must immediately remove them from the market as they cannot comply with the safety requirements under the General Product Safety Regulations 2005.

Baby self-feeding pillow products are designed to be attached to a bottle so that the baby may be positioned on its back to self-feed without the assistance of a caregiver holding the bottle and controlling the feed.

This is inconsistent with NHS guidance in relation to safe bottle feeding.

When used as intended, even while under the supervision of a caregiver, it could lead to immediate, serious harm or death from choking or aspiration pneumonia.

Consumers, local authority trading standards services and businesses are asked to take specific action to cease use or remove these products from the market.

You can visit the Office for Product Safety and Standards web pages on GOV.UK for further information and contact details.
