Just wanted to share this news story with all of the ATS parents or parents to be.

The traditional 'drop-side' crib was outlawed today due to death and injuries that the design has been found responsible for.

My wife and I used a drop side crib, but I was always a little but leary of it and always put that side against the wall, it just happened to be a gift to us that we decided to use beccause it matched everything else. After reading this article i am glad that I did it that way.

Short snippet:

In all, drop-side cribs have been blamed in the deaths of at least 32 infants and toddlers since 2000 and are suspected in another 14 infant fatalities. In the past five years, more than 9 million drop-side cribs have been recalled, including cribs from big-name companies such as Evenflo, Delta Enterprise Corp., and Pottery Barn Kids.

Again I just wanted to share this with everyone.
