New Crib Standards

For any of you that have not bought a crib yet it may be best to hold off. New cribs standards will go into effect in June. I was going to buy a crib, but I'm going to wait until after June 28th to get a new one. That's when all cribs on the shelf must meet the new standards. Some cribs meeting the new standards will be available before then as well.

Here are the articles..

Copied this from the site...

Once they become effective, the mandatory crib standards will: (1) stop the manufacture and sale of dangerous, traditional drop-side cribs; (2) make mattress supports stronger; (3) make crib hardware more durable; and (4) make safety testing more rigorous.
