New Safety Rule for Used Cribs

Just recently, there has been a federal ban on the sale of used cribs at all retail outlets, online sites (i.e eBay and Craigslist), and yard sales in the U.S.  Wow, that's a tough rule isn't it?  But, in all honesty, we want our preemies and newborns to be safe.  A lot of people I believe ruined it for those who keep our cribs in good condition and have the good sense not to resell them.  I think a lot of people sell broken cribs without alerting the consumer of the problem which then could lead to a catastrophe at large.  This ban also includes drop side cribs.  Apparently 10 babies a year die in crib accidents so I think it is best that the resale of cribs be banned ASAP. 

The day before this report came out, I tore down my used crib to let my brother and sister-in-law use for their upcoming baby.  It's a Babee Tenda, a certified hospital bed which also happens to be a drop side crib with a little door for soothing.  Granted, I didn't sell them the crib since it was a donation but I alerted them of this report and advised them to reconsider using the crib for the safety of their baby.

If individuals do not follow these new guidelines, if found out (which could potentially be difficult to find every resale of a used crib), there is up to a $100,000 violation.  Yikes!  So per sale of used crib by one party, the fine can potentially double.  That's scary to say the least but I think all parents should follow these new safety rules. After all, babies are priceless and it's definitely worth paying money for a new crib.  If you can't afford a new crib, consider a fundraiser or ask for donations.  Good minded people are usually always ready to help those in need, especially when it comes to babies.

What do you think of this new safety report?  Do you think it's the right move?  Or do you think there is nothing wrong with used cribs as long as they are in good shape?  Please share your thoughts and opinions with us.

  29. You need to find a way to move your baby out of your bed Into His Own His Maintaining security while. Just leivang HIM to cry Will not Achieve this and you will end up with a very stressed, apologetic baby. On the other hand, it is well Recognized That a baby's sleeping habits are basically cast in stone by around four months of age. In other words, if h is in your bed at four months it will be traumatic Extremely HIM to move out of your bed until he is old enough to Understand That You have your bed and he has His and That It does not mean you do not want to be with HIM (usually at around four years old.) My Advice. Buy a bassinet if you do not have one. Put baby to sleep on your bed next to you in the bassinet. When he cries, comfort HIM Quickly with your voice, but do not pick HIM up. Keep soothing until he settles. HIM put to sleep in the bassinet During the day too Whichever room you are in at the time. If he cries, soothe with your voice and touch but do not even pick HIM up. Eventually he will associate with the security of the bassinet and Mom will not fret as long as you are close. At this stage place the bassinet in the crib for His daytime sleep. Be quick to soothe but do not pick up. When this starts to go Smoothly try it at night. You will not get much sleep the first nights but he will settle Few After A Few Days. I have HAD four babies, all sleeping through the night in Their Own Hotel from 8 weeks. They all still sleep right through. i never have to get up for the unless Them They Are Sick. Both in the long run you and he will sleep better and be healthier if you Establish a good sleep pattern now.

  30. Not surprised. Simplicity has the Most On Any rllaces crib-EVER. This infuriates me. Why?? My mom bought us a crib. She Believed Every baby needs a crib. My husband put it together A Few months ago, she is 21 months old. He Was planning to use it for her naps. She sleeps with us. Anyway, When It Was together, we Discovered a huge gap in the crib mattress-Several inches on Each side. I called the company and They told me to use a 2 4 to block up the sides. The mattress Was a standard size mattress, no reason for the gaps. I Took pictures and emailed themto the company. That crib is a convertible crib and we Planned to use it as a big girl bed When Our Baby Was ready. It's as kindling to Concerned as I am. It is sitting in a heap in Our garage. It will stay there. I did not expect money back We'd Had it for over a year before we set it up. I DID expect Them to take the crib or to offer a solution-Perhaps a trade. Nope. I will never suggest this company to a crib by ANY parent. Edit: while this recall is old, it's still good to see it and the dangers from These cribs. This company does not Have a baby's best interest at heart.
