Injury Board: The first week in December, The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Amby Baby USA, of Minneapolis, Minn. recalled 24,000 Amby Baby Motion Beds. The side-to-side shifting or tilting of the hammock can cause the infant to roll and become entrapped or wedged against the hammock's fabric and/or mattress pad, resulting in a suffocation hazard.

Amby Baby marketed the bed as a cure-all for fussy babies. They are aware of two infant suffocation deaths in the Amby Baby hammock. In June 2009, a 4-month-old girl in Lawrenceville, Ga died in a baby hammock and in August 2009, a 5-month-old boy from Gresham, Ore.

The Amby Baby Motion Bed consists of a steel frame and a fabric hammock which are connected by a large spring and metal crossbar. There is only one model of the hammock available which can be identified by a label sewn onto the hammock stating: "Amby - Babies Love It, Naturally."

The beds and other Internet retailers from January 2003 through October 2009 for about $250. The beds were made in China.

Consumers should immediately stop using the using the Amby Baby motion beds/hammocks and contact Amby Baby USA for a free repair kit. Parents and caregivers are urged to find an alternative, safe sleeping environment for their baby. Amby Baby USA can be contacted toll-free at (866) 544-9721 or by visiting the firm's Web site at

It was reported this week , that one of the families of a suffocated infant has filed suit against the company in Multnomah County Circuit Court, Oregon
