I just discovered that there is a huge crib recall, and I'm a bit worried that our crib is one of them. CBS News posted an article on the recall of over 2.1 million Stork Craft drop-down side cribs. Our crib has actually had an issue with the railing staying up and it seems the plastic hardware is the culprit. There is a free repair kit that can be sent to parents, to which I'm in the process of getting one.
The terrible news is that babies are being suffocated due to the railing falling down and entrapping them between it and the mattress. I can't even imagine the horror these families are dealing with.
I was just thinking the other night how I needed to get Maddie out of my bed and back into hers, but I'm ok with it now. She's really started moving and I don't like the idea of her bed not being sturdy enough at the moment. Please keep the families that have been effected by this in your prayers, and pray now that the recall has begun, others will be able to take precautions.
