Cribs with rear closed panels? Safe or not?

I'm looking at buying a Madison Lifetime 3 in 1 crib by Jardine, from a friend who bought it a couple years ago brand new and never used it. He is going to sell it to me for a really good deal and I would like to buy it, but the fact that the back panel is all solid wood and not slates, kind of makes me nervous. Seems like it would be the same thing as them rolling into a bumper and not being able to breath. What is your opinion on these cribs? Here is a picture of it

  • My son has a crib (converted into a toddler bed now) like that (not the exact one you showed, but similiar style) and we haven't had any problems. I actually like that it has a solid back like that, makes it look more elegant in a way. He never had any issues with sleeping in it.

  • I mean it hasn't been unsafe for us.
