Thanks for posting this! I had a feeling our crib would be recalled sooner or later…I guess this weekend we move our daughter to a big girl bed.
what else is new! Cheap ass made cribs for mega bucks! I believe it.
At least people can get new cribs with the credit. They should start making cribs metal like in hospitals! LOL
