After our second child was born in 2010, the U.S. government decided that ALL drop down side cribs were unsafe and in 2011 banned the manufacture and sale of them, even at rummage or garage sales. This has left us with a crib we can no longer even give away and since we don't see a third child in our near future, we will have to simple dispose of this perfectly fine (and safe) piece of furniture.
So your baby is in a big kid bed! But that crib (or mattress, or change table, or…?) wasn’t cheap! In fact it was quite the investment – so now what?
