Our crib is from my 1st baby in 2003. It's been thru 2 kids and done fine and we plan to use it again, but lots of the dropside cribs have been recalled. My Dad even said he heard they are recommending you don't use ANY drop side cribs.
I have checked and our model is not on any recall lists that I've seen.
What would you do? Get a new one? Use the old one?

as of january 1st 2010 they are no longer manufacturing drop sides in the US. I think if I had one I might still use it as long as it hasn't been recalled. I know DH was like a nazi about NO drop sides. Usually he's impartial but he was very adament that we were not using one even if it hadn't been recalled. I would just really research it and make sure it's not on a recall list anywhere. We had to buy a crib, so I don't know what I would do if I already had a dropside
A great big thank you to Megan for my awesome siggie! You rock!!
As long as it hasn't been recalled I would use it. I was going to use mine. It's a drop side that I got in 2000 for my first baby but the head rail fell off of it today so I'm thinking I need a new one instead.
I have a dropside crib that was made in 2000 that I got from my aunt and uncle. ONly used about 6 times total fro their grandbabies. I searched and searched and can't find that it was recalled. I am going to use it.
i'm writing this without reading through the comments because im in a hurry, but my friend has a dropside crib, and hers was okay because it was made out of metal pieces, not plastic.. I guess all the dropsides are plastic piece ones.. And you can also get a kit to fix it, if it IS recalled.. I'd find the product, model #, etc, and google it, or call the company to make sure.
I have a drop-side crib and we'll be using it again. It's just over 2 years old and we've never had a problem with it, nor has it ever been recalled. I did register it when we bought it though, so hopefully the company will notify me if there's a problem!
