I've never heard of a crib expiring, but I only learned that carseats expire with DD. With DD I use the crib that I had as a baby. I'd just make sure that it meets current safety requirements (the slats can only be so far apart), other thanthatI wouldn't worry about it.

I don't believe cribs have expiration dates. If it's all wood and metal and meets the current safety requirements, you should be fine. If there are plastic bits that can wear out with use, you want to check those out thoroughly.

Car seats expire because of the extreme hot and cold temperatures to which they get exposed. Sun, heat, and cold degrade the plastic over time. Degraded plastic is likely to snap when subjected to the force of an impact.
