I'm just posting a little PSA here about command strips and how they have p*ssed me off this week. I finally hung up the wall art in the baby room with my H, and it's been falling off the wall at random times. We took down the rest of it now and will rehang with nails. If our LO had been in the crib one of the times, she would have been clobbered, and as it stands now there's am unsightly gash in the wood of our new crib. I am extremely irritated by this but also relieved that it happened now and not when we have an outside baby sleeping there!
I know in the commercials, it shows them using command strips for things like hanging a loaded Christmas stocking and putting a mailbox on the side of the house, but IRL it doesn't work that way. Even if you follow all the directions like we did and make sure you are putting less than 1 pound per hook (or whatever the weight rating is for the size you get), apparently they can still come crashing down when you least expect it.
If any of you are planning to hang things in the nursery with these things, I wouldn't put anything heavier/harder than some ribbon crafts or a stuffed animal net on them. Definitely don't use them over the crib for a mobile! For the safety of your family, just deal with the hassle of potentially having to re-arrange the room and re-hang everything in another spot in a couple of years. Command Strips are apparently really a bad idea for a baby's room.
