I broke the crib.

Ds woke up and when I went to get him out of the crib he did the "I want to get out of the crib, but I'm too tired to sit up" thing. So he's crying his little head off at the back corner of the crib. I lean over the rail to pick him up and I hear a "CRACK!" I felt the top rail, and thats what broke. It's a cheap, particle board crib (a gift from my parents. It looks really nice!) so I'm sure that had something to do with it.

I don't have anywhere else for him to sleep. So I put some duct tape over the crack until I can see it in the morning. Idk how bad it is, but it doesn't feel like it's a bad crack. We can't afford to get a new crib until df gets his bonus at the end of the month, so I'm hoping it's ok until then. Idk what we will do if it's not ok for him to sleep in. He won't sleep anywhere else. I feel like a dummy. Or a fatass. Who breaks their kids crib?

I have good news! Df thinks he can fix it. So he's going to try when he gets home. I'm hoping we don't have to buy a new one! They aren't cheap!

It happens! We bed share so cribs are not really a necessity for us.

Go to freecycle.org and see if anyone is giving away their crib.  Also I have seen cribs on craigs list for really cheap price.  Of course you would have to look at it really good up close to see if it was damaged in any way.   Gorilla glue is really good at fixing stuff like that so is epoxy.

Maybe there is a warranty call the manufacturer don't tell them you broke it
