Also please note, if you have a drop side crib, they are now banned and considered unsafe for your child. (see below)
In December 2010, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC)voted to ban all drop-side crib designs from the marketing, including the sale, RESALE (this includes yard sales and thrift stores) and manufacture of the cribs. The vote came after the drop-side design was linked to at least 32 infants and toddler deaths since 2000, and was suspected in another 14 fatalities. If you are a reseller, consignment store, thrift store, or even just having a yard sale...Do not re-sell recalled products. IT IS AGAINST THE LAW. Recalled products can cause deaths and injuries.
