Sturdy Cribs to Keep Baby Safe

May 7 2009 - 6:00am

Many parents don't mind putting the bulk of their design budget towards the newborn's crib — the most important item in a nursery. In recent days, some crib makers and their retailers [1] have decided to stop manufacturing and selling the popular drop-side versions leaving many customers wondering if their current crib is a hazard.

In an effort to keep customers hazard free and to prevent further recalls, Babies R Us will no longer stock and shelve the drop-side style, but encourage consumers to buy either a fold down design or version with fixed rails. With so many cute options on the market, it's hard to pick a favorite!
