I never really paid attention to the recall of children's items before, because, well, I didn't have to. But now I freak out everytime I see something on T.V. about a baby item recall. Case in point: my husband was awakened out of a deep sleep last night as I punched him repeatedly on the arm shrieking, "I think that's the travel play pen we have!" (I have no idea if it really is, but pregnancy hormones, what can I say?)
Anway, it was this story:

I must admit, I've read the story several times trying to understand/figure out how EXACTLY this happened. According to the story, this was the play yard in question:
Now, here's my confusion: How big is a baby at 10 months? 20 pounds? 30 pounds? Less? More? I have no idea, but why the heck were the parents stuffing this child under the removable changing table on top? According to the story, the baby sadly strangled himself on the loop of the strap that hangs down from this changing table. HELLLOOOO?!?!
