Baby’s Uncle Anton has been on the safety watch.
This morning he forwarded a crib recall announcement to Dominic so we could make sure our crib was safe. Before we got our crib I checked all the recall notices and we were good to go. Unfortunately, 2 days ago our Simmons crib was recalled :( Well, I guess it’s actually a good thing so we can order the repair kit and disable the drop down side before baby arrives. Thanks Uncle Anton for watching out! You’re the best!!!
Have you checked your crib for a recall lately? If not, it is a definite must. You can subscribe to e-alerts for all future recalls related to infants/children here. My hubby (who I have dubbed Father of the Year) has already signed up and is officially on the watch for our family.
The crib drama has me thinking about how tied I am to actually having a crib … I’ve actually been thinking about it for a few weeks now. Ever since I ran across this article linking crib mattresses to SIDS I’ve felt a bit worrisome about it all. Take the time to read the article … it is just as important as keeping in touch with recall notices. There are some valid concerns about the mattresses letting off toxic nerve gases which originate from phosphorus, arsenic and antimony (which are used as preservatives and fire retardants). Something none of us would want our little ones around!
So, now that I’ve got a bum crib and a mattress that will keep me up at night with worry I’m a bit perplexed on what to do. I think it’s time to start reading up on co-sleeping … any advice/experience with that?
Other option is to just order the repair kit from Simmons and get this mattress cover.
OMG … the deliberations of being a parent.
