That sucks!!!<quoted text>I bought my crib used. When my first got old enough that he was climbing over and about to fall out, we knew we needed a bed. So we went out and got one that weekend. Then found out after the fact that the crib could have converted to a toddler bed.
The crib we had was a drop-side, which I never actually used. Those beds are now illegal to sell in NJ and even though I could have tried to sell it at a yard sale, no one wants to buy them because of the recalls (not on this model) and safety concerns, so we ended up throwing away a beautiful bed that was only used for 5 years total. It did also convert to a headboard for a full-size bed, but Ry has a full-size captain bed with bookshelves and E has a twin captain bed that he's probably going to keep until he goes off to college.
