Abstract

This consumer safety specification covers the requirements and test methods to promote safe use of infant and infant/toddler rockers by both occupants and caregivers. It is intended to minimize the risk of injury or death associated with a child’s use of an infant or infant/toddler rocker. The specific hazards addressed by this specification are product disassembly/collapse, stability, and falls from elevated surfaces. Intended occupants for infant rockers are infants who have not developed the ability to sit up unassisted (approximately 0-6 months of age), and infant/toddler rockers with an extended use with occupants until toddler age (approximately 2.5 years of age). Both infant and infant/toddler rockers include a restraint system. This specification does not address positions or modes on products that recline to 10 degrees or less above the horizontal or are intended primarily for sleeping. Also excluded from this specification are rockers intended for toddler only use without a restraint system, hand-held infant carriers or inclined sleep products that have the ability to rock or have a rocking mode. Test methods include seat angles test and cover single action release mechanisms, restraint system, stability, static slip resistance, structural integrity, disassembly/collapse, toy bar attachment integrity, permanency of labels and warnings, and protective components. Requirements for marking and labeling are also covered by this specification.
