My family thinks I'm crazy because I want to buy two new fixed side cribs for my kids... My oldest is 15 months and I am expecting another one in January. My 15 month old hates the toddler bed we tried but he goes to sleep without crying every night at 8 in his crib so rather than ruin a good thing we decided it may be easier to keep him in the crib after the new baby arrives. Anyways the issue is his current crib is 13 yrs old and has never been recalled but is a double drop side. Recently all drop side cribs have been banned in the U.S. also I just found out it isn't recommended to use any crib that is more than 10 yrs old. It seemed reasonable to me and my husband to buy him a new fixed side that can be converted into a toddler bed later because of this. Of course regardless I will have to buy at least one for the new baby. So would you do the same thing or continue to use the older double drop side crib?
