Expect Drop-Side Cribs to Be Banned in 2011

Hot on the heels of several major crib recalls, including the Pottery Barn Kids recall yesterday, the US Consumer Product Safety Comision agreed yesterdat on a new set of standards for cribs that would essentially ban drop-side cribs. In 2010, well over 1 million drop-side cribs have been recalled because of injuries relating to the drop-side becoming undone or children becoming entrapped between the drop-side and the crib mattress.

So if you’re in the market for a crib, it would be wise to choose a model with fixed sides. Here are a few safe, well-designed suggestions:

If you’re short on space, consider Bloom’s mini crib ($600). It’s designed to accommodate small urban apartments, so it’s folds up for easy storage if necessary.

Oeuf’s sparrow crib ($670) actually exceeds current safety regulations and you have the option to convert it to a toddler bed with a separate kit.
