I am on the lookout for a good quality crib....I was waiting till we were moved to do DD's nursery.
I just saw this article and now I am nervous about drop side cribs...Do you have one and do you like yours?
I do have one. I bought it 2 years ago for my first daughter. I wanted a non-drop side crib but I'm short and I bought one to save my back. Truth be told, I rarely dropped the side on it.
If I were in the market for a crib now I probably wouldn't go with a drop side. If you do, just regularly check that the pins haven't fallen out of their tracks and that the side is sturdy.
Kuuipo1006:I was hearing a lot of bad things about them myself...I went with a stationary one. You can read reviews from people who have actually used the cribs...usually on babies r us or other websites to help you make a choice. I'm sure they are all not a problem...but I just didn't want to risk it! I went with the Graco Lauren crib. It was a good quality and decently priced. Good luck! I hope you find something :-)
I would get a stationary. I too went with the Graco Lauren and I love it. I accidentally ordered the dropside version of this crib and exchanged it for the stationary and I'm glad I did because the dropside was recalled.
I'm 5'0 and I have no problems getting LO in and out of the stationary crib. If you havn't bought one yet, go with the stationary. Better than getting a dropside and it getting recalled later.
