Thread: drop side crib

  1. #1

    Default drop side crib

    ethical dilemma - DH and I have a hand-me-down dropside crib that is about 10 years old. My sister "used" it for her twins and then gave it to us 4.5 years ago for our son. I had no reservations about using it for my son, it is a very sturdy piece of furniture. So here is the real dilemma - DH's brother and his fiancee are expecting and DH offered the crib to them. But I have reservations about giving it to them. I don't want to feel like I'm forcing it on them especially if they are uncomfortable about the drop-side. I mentioned telling his brother about BRU trade-in event that they could swap the old crib for 25% off a new one and DH was like "why would they do that?"

    Most companies offer a free conversion kit to disable the drop bar. I just installed it on my old crib. I wouldn't worry about it.

    I would offer it and just make sure that you tell them you don't mind if they don't want it or would prefer to trade it in.

    I'm still using a drop side crib. And it doesn't make me even the tiniest bit worried.I can't even reach DD when the side is up, lol

    I would offer it, but tell them that its ok if they don't want it, or if they want to trade it in. It's the thought that counts anyways.

    I would still offer it. In fact we are going to be using a drop side crib but we are side caring it so the drop side wont even be on it. I know in some of my FB groups people are still looking for them because they want to be able to pull their baby out without having to use a step stool. Although it would not hurt to throw in that you don't mind if they trade it in to get a discount on a crib they want.

    Thank you for the sound advice, ladies. DH is going to bring it over next weekend when he goes to their superbowl party.
