LAWS HAVE CHANGED REGARDING THE RESALE OF DROP-SIDE CRIBS
In December 2010, the Consumer Product Safety Commission mandated new safety standards be implemented for all cribs sold or manufactured in the United States by June 28, 2011. While stores already are carrying the new products, childcare services, such as daycare centers and in-home providers, have until Dec. 28 to replace all noncompliant cribs with the new, safer models. The new standards require strengthening slats, improving mattress support, eliminating drop sides, making hardware stronger and conducting more rigorous testing. The Child Care Resource Center suggests that if you already own a crib to verify with the manufacturer that it meets the new safety standards and check to make sure it has not been recalled by going to www.cspc.gov. The agency also warns against buying previously used cribs, or using hand-me-down cribs.
