Crib Recall

Our Jenny Lind crib is part of the massive recall in drop side cribs. I know many of you have the same one, so I wanted to bring it to your attention in case you hadn’t heard already. Free repair kits are available from Da Vinci / Million Dollar Baby.

Jenny Lind Crib

We stopped using the drop side a long time ago, when the first recalls were announced (under different brands and styles). We also turned the crib around so that that side would be against the wall. Our crib is still sturdy, but we’re glad our repair kit will be arriving soon.

    Thank you for posting this. We have the same crib, and I hadn’t heard about the recall.

    we had our crib recalled with the april drop side recalls. boo. our repair kit arrived quickly though, and we fixed it right away- i never used the drop side, but i’m dreading what will happen when my child is standing- i’m only 5’1″ and getting him in/out of the crib is going to stink!

    brilliant idea on turning it around- ours is higher in the back though, so that wouldn’t work for us!

    So glad you posted on the recall! There have been so many lately and that crib is such a popular style. We recently went crib shopping and purchased one that didn’t have any drop/fold options at all because we were so worried about things.

    I remember when your little cutie was born. I can’t believe how fast time has gone by! It makes me more excited for when mine finally makes his appearance!

    I also have a crib by Da Vinci and I ordered the repair kit well over a month ago but have not yet received it. I hope they are able to get those out fast enough to everyone!

    Completely off topic…

    Where did you buy the curtains (for the nursery)?

    I specifically bought a stationary-sided (is that a term?) crib because I had read about the problems and I figured the recall would come. We’re tall so it wasn’t really an issue. I really love our crib and I’ve never been sorry we got it. Aurora still can’t climb out of it, although that day is coming soon.

    I don’t want to be a debbie downer, but turning the crib around won’t prevent anything. Issues are that the plastic pieces are breaking and the crib is collapsing.
    Our crib was recalled in the spring for the dropside and the everything out there about it said to stop using the crib immediately until the retrofit kit arrived (which took 6 weeks!). Charlotte slept in her pack & play until then. The thought of her being in her crib terrified me!
    I hope your kit comes soon!!!

    That is the style of crib I would like to have when I have kids. Where did you get the bedding?

    thanks!

    We did just the same with our crib, turned the drop side to the wall. It’s almost impossible to adjust in the first place so I’m not to worried about it budging.
