I don't know why I didn't look at all or do a search. But I just found out today that the Amby bed that I bought used for $150 was recalled in December of 2009!
I had borrowed one from a friend for the first three months of ds #2's life back in 2008 and it was seemed fine.
So when a different friend posted hers for sale because she was moving I jumped at the chance.
I had coffee today with other friend, who asked me if the recall fix kit had been included, becuase she had never received hers.
Of course it isn't there. I didn't know it should be.
So now I have to figure out what to do.
I am probably not going to use it now even though I do so without issue before.
I have an old pack and play from 7 yr old ds and I "think" it has a bassinnette attachment, so as long as I can figure out how it fits together that should work for when the baby is not in bed with us.
I emailed the person I bought it from and asked her if she knew about the recall, of course she has denied that....but I don't know what to do now. Part of me thinks I should get my money back, but I am sooo non confrontational and feel bad asking her for $150 right before christmas. I would feel ok asking her for half...if I could get up enough guts to do it.
Also it really is my responsibility to ensure that the things I buy for my baby are safe.
But I can't really eat the $150 for something I can't use. And it is possible I might need to purchase something else for her to sleep in.
And baby is coming Thursday!!! SO, YAY! for one more thing to freak out about.
