Frantically checking her son’s body, the horrified mother found a cut on his toe.

She believed little Parker had gotten his tiny toe caught in the mesh of the Childcare Lullabye Bassinet, which she purchased from Big W.

‘I went into my son’s room, he was asleep, and then he started crying so I went to pick him up, I moved his blanket and there was blood all on the side of the bassinet,’ she told 7News.

‘I saw a massive amount of blood all over him, his blanket and his bassinet. I got mum to come straight away and she took him to the doctors quickly so I could get dressed and get he’s bottle and meet her there.’

Following the ordeal, Ms Duffy said she noticed her son’s toe has started blistering.

‘Turns out Parker had gotten he’s little baby toe stuck in the little holes in the side and it cut he’s baby toe,’ she said.

‘We think it might be because maybe he was rubbing his foot against the fabric.’

The retailer said the company will not remove the bassinet from shelves because it fully complies with safety standards – but confirmed it will inspect the family’s cot.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Childcare Nursery’s manufacturer CNP Brands for further comment.

Ms Duffy revealed the bassinet was a gift from her mother.

‘I never even thought of something like that happening and I thought it was a good idea having the holes to help the air flow but not now,’ she said.

‘Very very dangerous. Although Parker’s cut wasn’t big at all he lost a lot of blood… He’s okay now and is very happy sleeping.

‘Anyone with this bassinet, please keep on eye on your little ones toes. I’m just trying to spread the hazard so it doesn’t happen to another little bubba.’
